I Feel Pretty (2018)
Critic Consensus: I Feel Pretty has a charming star and the outline of a worthwhile comedy -- but unlike its suddenly confident central character, it suffers from a fundamental lack of conviction.

Critic Reviews for I Feel Pretty
I Feel Pretty is the second movie comedy within the last year in which Schumer's inventive artistry is misused.
This movie, premised on the idea that self-esteem trumps physical beauty, doesn't even believe in the product it's selling.
The most damning aspect of this movie, more damning even than its pandering or blatant commercialism, is how deeply unfunny it is.
In what should have been a major breakthrough for this comedian, I Feel Pretty instead becomes a good idea totally hamstrung, gutted, eviscerated by poor writing.
Amy Schumer is always fun company. But who the hell thought that making plus-size jokes then simply tacking on a moralizing ending was hilarious? Or acceptable?
Audience Reviews for I Feel Pretty
Amy Schumer shines in role that is slightly less over the top than her trademark characters, and I Feel Pretty works its charm more often than not, despite some mixed messaging. It has good intentions and is funny enough. Rating: 55
This comedy wants to persuade that a woman's look shouldn't be the highest consideration of her even while that is what the film itself does. Nonetheless, Amy Schumer is one game bird, up for any gamble and as reminiscent of any comedienne since Carol Burnett or Lucille Ball as any I've seen. She may not always get the laffs, but it's not for lack of trying. Michelle Williams - that"s one sneaky customer - tries to steal the film with her eyes. You gotta see it to believe it. But the overall work fails.
The over analysing of this movie is ridiculous. I don't think there's too many women who wouldn't relate to this character in some way. I thought the overall message was nice, a woman who is empowered by suddenly believing she is beautiful finds out in the end that it wasn't her looks that bought her good things, it was her confidence and personality.
