Seldom do movies create focus through spontaneity, but Lovely & Amazing feeds on surprise

Exceeded all my expectations.

This serio-comic family portrait about self-absorption, self-esteem and family dynamics is excellently acted but more blatantly offbeat than dramatic.

Actresses beware. Catherine Keener is quietly cornering the market on self-assured, sharp-tongued feminism.

Has a lovely feel, interactions that are real & unafraid to broach life's insecurities -- ie: personal appearance from hair to body fat. However, doesn't add up to amazing.

Who'd have thought spending 90 minutes with a bunch of neurotic women could be such fun? An intelligent, unassuming drama that's never less than enjoyable.

Observed without corny resolutions and paced to allow for reflection, the film is understated but spot on.

I can't imagine why a guy would go to this movie. That is, unless he talks to me or some other guy who has seen it. Because it's one of the best films I've seen this year.

Captures the body-image insecurities of women while delving more than skin-deep into her characters' psyches.

As in Walking and Talking, her comic lament on the evils that brides do to their maids of honor, [Nicole] Holofcener strikes a careful balance between distaff divertissement and stark, semiautobiographical realism.

Not long enough to be a 'message movie', but insightful enough to hold our attention while exploring the lives of these characters.

Michelle isn't an easy woman to relate to let alone like, yet as the film progresses I was drawn more and more towards her inner warmth and charm discovering pieces of myself in her own persona.

There are a lot of deeper issues in this film that most films don't focus and it's a credit to Holofcener that she brings it out.

After this, you'd like to think that the studios might let Holofcener turn her attention to a few more US TV shows. They need talents like her.

A refreshing reminder that not every movie about women must be a hollow, empty, self-indulgent 'chick flick.'

"Lovely and Amazing is a story about real people. These people are insecure about their lives. They aren't convinced that there's some inner beauty about them. They see themselves as I suspect most people do, mostly for the flaws. However, these are still

A film I enjoyed, but not necessarily for exemplary artistic merit.

Another one of those estrogen overdose movies like "Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood," except that the writing, acting and character development are a lot better.
