Dustin Putman

An entertaining, if flawed, film all the way up until the disastrous final 5 minutes, which turn up the self-appreciation and cheeseball meters so high that it becomes sickening.

Well, knock us over with a tiara, but first-time director Sally Field has actually made a likeable movie.

Does it have to be so painful to watch? Every performance is gratingly awful, and all the roles are badly miscast.

An uneasy comedy, one that asks you to swallow a lot of hooey to get to the cream-filled center.

There's so much wrong with Beautiful, we'd have to dedicate an entire section of the newspaper to charting its flaws.

Like watching Norma Rae Goes to the Pageant.

Sally Field's directing is unindictable, but the script and the acting are close to grotesque.

The movie's heroine is so tiresome, you can feel her projected image draining your life away.

The tame, confused script eventually sinks the film.

JoBlo's Movie Emporium

The lead character in this film ... is one of the most reprehensible human beings that I have ever had the displeasure of watching at the movies.

Tor Thorsen

A tedious ordeal, riddled with unlikable characters, recycled gags, and inane plot developments.

Every mushy element of the script is robustly wrung for every last drip of sap.

A movie with so many inconsistencies, improbabilities, unanswered questions and unfinished characters that we have to suspend not only disbelief but also intelligence.

Some will argue that this review is cruel, and they may be right -- but so is being losing two hours of one's life to this inexcusably bad tripe.

The movie is so nasty to its mostly female characters that it feels harshly misogynist.

In a feature directorial debut that never feels like one, Field is as effortless behind a camera as she is in front of one.

It's a better film when it keeps its heart in cold storage and shows what drives a woman to compete against her peers.

Like a pageant contestant who flops in talent but scores well in the inspirational speech, there are elements and nuances that save the movie from total washout.

Despite an almost two-hour running time and a wholly loathsome main character, Beautiful is generally engaging.

A funny and enjoyable film.
