Jake's Movie Stuff "I Feel Pretty" Review
This film is an intriguing one. The premise is silly, and several plot points are ridiculous. However, there are some laugh out loud moments. Amy Schumer does a good job acting, however, I do not know if this was the best choice of actress for this role. I say this because her character lacks self-esteem for not being "beautiful" when she is not an ugly person to begin with. In fact, it is not even clear why she doesn't have confidence in herself in the first place. It is never said if it is a weight issue, personality issue, or any other issue she has that she deems herself as not pretty. The message that this film conveys is being able to see a person's inner beauty and not focusing on their outer appearance only. Additionally we could all be more sensitive about others predicaments. The trailers led people to think this film may be about "body-shaming", but it was more about finding confidence from within. The plot has issues due to some weak writing in the script. However, some of the dialogue is witty and fun. The story fits a romantic comedy conventions and is quite formulaic in it's approach to romance. The supporting cast is decent, but 95% of the laughs do come from Schumer's character. Michelle Williams does a fine job in her role. It is not the worst comedy in the world, but it isn't the worst one ever either. Overall, I give this film a 5/10.
