Its unclear if a film with this kind of high concept, hard to swallow premise could have ever been salvaged.

"For starters, Schumers character isnt a train wreck this time around."
And watching her inspired delivery and unabashed physicality is one of the films great joys.
And yet the movie never seems to go deep enough on its cultural observations or what it means to be beautiful.

I Feel Pretty keeps the jokes coming at a solid pace, allowing the audience to remain engaged and entertained throughout most its runtime.
Why do women need a bonk on the head to achieve the self confidence they should already have.(This is essentially the point of the movie, by the way).
In addressing unrealistic expectations and low self esteem universal girl angst the film is well intentioned.
Its a plot imperative that works against the disaster, embarrassment and cynicism integral to Amy Schumers comedy.
As the film edges closer to the feelgood finale, tears are shed, fridge magnet wisdom is delivered and broad realizations are made, but despite best i ..
Kohn and Silversteins screenplay never really taps into the inherent absurdity of its premise.

Beauty isnt always effortless, it seems, but comedy is really, really hard.
Of course, these wild exaggerations are supposed to be funny, but satire takes more smarts and comedy more heart if either is going to fly.

Rogers Movie Nation
Setting aside...larger objections, one can dismiss it as simply not as funny or insightful as it ought to be.
One Guys Opinion
The most damning aspect of this movie, more damning even than its pandering or blatant commercialism, is how deeply unfunny it is.
Accordingly, the film is likely to bemuse some children while delighting others.
Yikes, this is messy.An interesting comedy premise, about the superficiality of contemporary metropolitan life, is turned on its head by some shaky pl ..
And the filmmakers pull every sentimental trick in the book to show their heart is in the right place; the last section of the movie is a tearjerking ..
The bracing promise of the setup steadily loses fizz and the overlong feature grows smaller constricted, deflated as it travels familiar routes.

I Feel Pretty doesnt quite hit those heights, but at least theres a little more to it than meets the eye.
Sadly, the film ultimately doesnt do justice to its own intriguing premise.It is never as funny as you want it to be.
Everything here is tinged with irony, subverting expectations about what a gross out comedy should be.
Shadows On The Wall
(This is especially true in terms of the movies smattering of misbegotten gross out gags.)
But after Renee falls off her Soul Cycle bike and sustains a fateful blow to the head, beauty is suddenly very much in the eye of the beholder.
The movie that I Feel Pretty should have been deserves to be made.
Its clear that Ms. Schumer knows a thing or two about sexist ideologies, real power struggles and all the deeply unfunny, unpretty rest. She can go mo ..
The New York Times
I Feel Pretty is a fun update to the rather stale body swap genre.
I Feel Pretty manages to sneak past its dodgy premise by getting past surface details and addressing a fear common to all people, but especially women ..
Whatever the case, I Feel Pretty is a good idea that never quite clicks the way it should.
But the movie keeps this all firmly inside Renees head, and in doing so, it internalizes the issue.I Feel Pretty isnt arguing that there is an objecti ..
And so unfolds a wish fulfillment story without the usual need for magic.
Its a painfully honest moment, maybe too honest for a comedy like this.
Once you translate that inner beauty into outer beauty, congratulations: You deserve love!
Its just too bad it couldnt give as dramatic a makeover to its jokes.
But all it takes is a little pluck and confidence, and even a plain Jane can be a star.

Its answer is mostly yes.But, instead of radiating confidence, Renee becomes everything you hate in a person: a braggart, pushy and snobby.

The new Amy Schumer comedy, I Feel Pretty, is a lot like its main character: half daring and half a neurotic mess.

Birth Movies Death
Most everyone reacts to her newfound confidence with dumbfounded confusion, and thats not believable satire, its clumsy writing.
But I Feel Pretty is as rife with lazy writing as it is skinny women sneering at its heroine.
The net result is a mildly likable movie that, in comedy terms, wont win any pageants.
In its clumsy approach, it sets back the conversation about beauty, rather than pushing it forward.
Theres a potentially funny movie in here somewhere.But it lumbers along, wasting some of its greatest assets and, in the end, overstaying its welcome.
Unfortunately, its also far less thoughtful about its body positivity message than it thinks it is.

"The Atlantic wrote, This movie, premised on the idea that self esteem trumps physical beauty, doesnt even believe in the product its selling."

Maki At The Movies
Its not confident enough in its central premise, leaving the audience wanting something more.
The Play List
To be clear, my criticism here is not Schumer isnt fat enough for I Prettys premise to work. Its that I dont want to laugh at this premise at all.
The premise of this humorous but ultimately annoying film couldnt be more straightforward.
Raidió Teilifís Éireann
The films low stakes plot leaves space for a progressive and thoughtful contemplation on body image, but this is never fully delivered.
This would all feel trite, however, if Schumer didnt convey a true and messy emotion in reaction to these two seemingly perfect women.
I just hope this depressing trifle isnt emblematic of her future endeavors.

So ordinary women who aspire to be beautiful are funny, and beautiful women are shallow, it seems, is the message of this film.
But while it seems to have its heart in the right place, its ultimately too flat footed and wrong headed to do a body good.

On the plus side, its often a pleasantly entertaining ride with the always appealing Schumer, and its heart is in the right place.
Mean spirited and very distinctly inept to the definition of self love.
But I Feel Pretty fumbles its message so badly that the end result is less inspiring than just plain baffling.

This film is predictable and derivative, and its message is so old and hoary.
Deep, right.The rest of the film sees Renee make some very valid points about the beauty industry, and beauty standards dictated by society.
Iol Co Za
Most of the movie is just different versions of the same joke: confidence that borders on bombast.
This isnt a shallow story about attaining a false ideal of physical beauty, but about the importance in believing in and accepting oneself.
