It's treacly, plastic and shamelessly obvious, and yet, on a low-rent level, it somehow works.
January 1, 2000
If you and a few girlfriends want a night out with laughs and popcorn, this could be your movie.
January 1, 2000
Focuses on one woman's heartfelt and funny journey in search of what beauty really means.

Disappointingly short on substance.

A funny and enjoyable film.
January 1, 2000
Despite an almost two-hour running time and a wholly loathsome main character, Beautiful is generally engaging.
January 1, 2000
Well, knock us over with a tiara, but first-time director Sally Field has actually made a likeable movie.

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.
January 1, 2000
It's a better film when it keeps its heart in cold storage and shows what drives a woman to compete against her peers.

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

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.
January 14, 2010
An uneasy mix of broad satire, soap opera outlandishness, and movie-of-the-week sappiness.

September 12, 2006
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 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.

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...
