This movie was great entertainment. The 2 and 3 Star people need to pick different movies! This is obviously not your genre. Amy Schumer did a great job and was super funny. Thanks for the laughs, girl. You rock!

Stop it already!! It was a funny movieReviewed byckirby-64142Vote: 10/10
I just couldn't believe it. They are kind of remaking Shallow Hal, Shallow Hal !Is there a drought in Hollywood? No writers? If this gets the go ahead from a corporation who's in the business of making money, I don't know what they're doing because this is not going to make money and it certainly won't break barriers, or tell us something new. Where are the writers of Barbershop (2002) or The Ref or Death Becomes Her, three examples of very smart & very funny. I Feel Pretty has one saving grace, Michelle Williams. She is completely there for us that's why a 2 and not a 1 - Do I sound pedantic? I'm sorry, I really am.
If I'm being perfectly honest, for as derivative -- comparisons to Big, What Women Want, Shallow Hal, and 13 Going on 30 are justified -- and admittedly questionable as its core premise is, I honestly think it has legitimate potential to be a smart, provocative, funny comedy. However, I Feel Pretty is anything but. It takes the completely wrong direction with this idea, resulting in what is quite honestly one of the most embarrassing things I have ever seen in theaters.
Amy Schumer's protagonist is supposed to be the relatable everywoman character we're meant to identify and sympathize with seeing as she's insecure and not particularly confident about herself and she's average-looking -- by the standards of Hollywood that is, because let's be honest with ourselves, Amy Schumer is really not the first thing that comes to mind when we hear the word ugly. Yes, it's not the most original set-up, but nonetheless, I was willing to go along with it. But then as the film goes on, we come to learn that she's this egomaniacal, narcissistic, self-absorbed, unlikable, unpleasant, vapid monster of a human being who believes that physical attractiveness and being supermodel-thin are the only ways to make you successful in this world and are what matters the most in life.
Take one scene, where a character played by Emily Ratajkowski, an actress and model who is best known for her striking good looks -- she appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues two years in a row after all -- has gone through a bad break-up and is dealing with low self-esteem. Schumer then starts yelling at her for no real reason and says she wants to punch her in the face because of what she just said. So according to her brilliant logic, if you're a woman who's physically gorgeous, it's impossible for you to have any problems whatsoever, and if you do have problems, those aren't real problems at all. Wow, what a great message for your audience. If this sorry excuse for a motion picture had a face, I would knock it out with brass knuckles.
Look, I get it, filmmakers, our "hero" is super confident and wants to inspire that same confidence in others, but maybe -- just maybe -- try having her not do that by way of hurting other people and making them feel even more terrible? Which, you know, completely goes against whatever message you hacks are trying to send out to your target demographic?
Oh, and speaking of that message: It's really a good one, but the execution is absolutely botched. Writers and directors Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein -- one of them being a middle-aged white male isn't at all surprising, the other being a woman is rather depressing -- feel the need to shove it down your throat constantly, as if they feel that who they're making this film for is too stupid to notice or understand it. It's delivered with the subtlety of a roaring chainsaw and it's so incredibly obnoxious.
Also, what makes it even less effective is the fact that it takes less than two hours -- Is it really so bad for a comedy to have a suitable ninety-minute running time? -- for our "protagonist" to learn something that literally every single person sitting in the theater slurping down their Diet Coke and munching on their popcorn and sweets has learned already. You know exactly what's going to happen and which direction it's going to take, it's that predictable. It's just such an ungodly boring yet simultaneously frustrating experience because everything is so uninteresting, been there done that, and paint by numbers. Not to mention that this is a one-joke comedy, so the same tired gag has to be repeated over and over again.
The only, and I mean the only, reason why this film isn't entering the point of no return is because of Michelle Williams. How she -- along with Lauren Hutton and Naomi Campbell -- got roped into this dumpster fire disaster I have absolutely no idea, but nonetheless, she provides the only humorous moments this film has to offer. Yes, her character's a flighty, sheltered airhead, but at least I could tell Williams was having fun with the material and trying desperately hard to make something out of it. Also, I kind of loved the squeaky, chipmunk-ish voice she uses. It's funny but also honestly kind of adorable. Then again, Michelle Williams is adorable in everything.
So aside from one genuinely good performance, nothing in this film works. Florian Ballhaus' flat cinematography and lighting, Tia Nolan's choppy editing, characters who are either unlikable or completely underdeveloped, jokes that are unfunny and repetitive, conviction-phobic storytelling that drags to the point of frustration, bland romance subplot, poorly executed moral... the list goes on. I Feel Pretty is one of the worst films of the year so far. It will leave you feeling ugly by the time it's over.
