Beautiful is just bad, sadly. Where's the plot?

ally Field's direction is pedestrian, though she does manage to get shamelessly winning performances out of Driver and Eisenberg.

An uneasy mix of broad satire, soap opera outlandishness, and movie-of-the-week sappiness.

Film Journal International

It's treacly, plastic and shamelessly obvious, and yet, on a low-rent level, it somehow works.

Flat, witless, and sappy (a very bad combo), Sally Field's embarrassing feature directorial debut aims to say something "relevant" about American society's obsession with physical looks at the expense of "inner beauty" and moral integrity.

...one of that growing genre of mainstream Hollywood shots at the main chance -- an unfunny comedy.

Cinema em Cena

Pior do que a direção de Sally Field, só mesmo o caráter desprezível da personagem principal: uma mulher egoísta, fútil e irritante. Ao longo do filme, eu não queria apenas que ela perdesse o concurso; queria que ela sofresse.

| Original Score: 1/5

When a person is suffering deeply, Field cues you in to what they're thinking by having voices from the past echoing all around them, a technique that's more often used in cautionary drivers' ed documentaries...

[Driver] gives a technically impressive and effectively scary performance. But then, so does the Terminator.

It has some humor and warmth, but would be nearly unendurable except for Driver.

One idiotic, false, maddening plot turn after another, none of which are resolved in a manner that would resemble real, human behavior.

It manages to find an almost pitch-perfect accumulation of ill-matched tones, sheer grotesquerie, near-heroic absurdity and self-canceling folly.

What could have been light and sweet is bogged down by layer upon layer of schmaltz and sentiment, not to mention a rather ugly (on the inside) main character.

[Field] fails horribly to establish a consistent tone; we never know whether she's going for laughs or melodrama.

A conceptual tug-of-war between pathos, cynicism, and satire that is perfunctorily resolved by a thoroughly undeserved (if unsurprising) change of heart.

As predictable as a beauty queen's tearful acceptance speech.

You won't often see a movie with so many recognizable names yet such weak direction.

Guys, quick huddle here. If your girlfriend even suggests seeing this movie, you might want to consider these time-tested words: 'Satan, go ye hence from the soul of my girlfriend. I shall not abide thy evil channeling.'

The kind of movie that connoisseurs of bad cinema will really, really like. Rarely does a movie go so thoroughly wrong in so many ways.
