Like its appealing main character, this smart, funny comedy isn’t always confident enough in its potential greatness. Lovingly and shrewdly exploring how women wrestle with body image, it wields a clever hook and some tart observations about the ways that modern life conspires to make people feel painfully inadequate. It’s a shame the film gets tripped up by plot contrivances, but Amy Schumer is thoroughly winning, generating plenty of laughs but also a great deal of empathy as an insecure urbanite who suddenly believes she’s gorgeous.
“Schumer redeems I Feel Pretty by completely and fearlessly buying into the premise.” –Toronto Star“It’s a sweet, klutzy charmer, with moments of wit, insight and, yes, beauty, some of which it seems to stumble upon by accident.” –Los Angeles Times“When Schumer’s fully locked into her take-no-prisoners charm assault, it’s pretty undeniably delightful stuff.” –New York MagazineCast Amy Schumer
