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.

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.

Pior do que a direo de Sally Field, s mesmo o carter desprezvel da personagem principal: uma mulher egosta, ftil e irritante. Ao longo do filme, eu no queria apenas que ela perdesse o concurso; queria que ela sofresse.

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...

Even a couple of sharp pokes at pageant conventions can't keep the clumsy story from stumbling when on the catwalk.

This movie has no point of view, a wildly inconsistent tone, and no understanding of its characters.

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

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.'
January 1, 2000
The movie's heroine is so tiresome, you can feel her projected image draining your life away.

It's a better film when it keeps its heart in cold storage and shows what drives a woman to compete against her peers.
January 1, 2000
An uneasy comedy, one that asks you to swallow a lot of hooey to get to the cream-filled center.

This movie wants to have it both ways: to score points against beauty pageants and the cult of feminine beauty in our culture, but also to root for Mona. It doesn't work.
