I saw a free screening and somehow still wanted my money back. This kind of self-indulgent crap is why people don't trust Hollywood comedies anymore. Not only is the cheesy message of this movie dishonest and singular to only one demographic of people, but it's a fairly obvious retread of Shallow Hal with a few key details changed.
Replace Amy Schumer with literally anyone and it would be a little funnier, but not a whole lot, since the writing is so mediocre and predictable. "Oh, it's what's on the INSIDE that counts! How did I not see it before?" is the movie's realization, a message that had been beaten into the audience's head with a sledgehammer from minute one of the movie, but somehow it took this dense, unlikable, cringe-inducing protagonist an hour and a half of screen time to figure out. I laughed literally once during this film, when Schumer's character got her hair stuck in the stationary bike, which of course, is shown in the trailer. Was I laughing at the idea of Amy Schumer in pain, you ask? Possibly. Doesn't matter. Still counts as one laugh.
Just skip it. Go see Super Troopers 2 instead and support people that actually have some talent and couldn't get their movie funded by a production company, (which leaves me to wonder how this utter abortion of a film did). ST2 isn't groundbreaking, but at least I didn't leave it wanting my money back.
