‘I Feel Pretty’ Bullet Point Review

Using bullet points, I’m going to give you my thoughts on the Amy Schumer movie where, apparently, she is the ugliest person in the world…‘I Feel Pretty’!

 

  • Schumer isn’t toothpick skinny but she isn’t fat either. The beginning of this movie will have you think she is a hideous whale the way her character, Renee, is being looked at and treated
  • The wish scene at the water fountain was dramatic and corny
  • Hilarious “Zero views on Groupdater” moment
  • Michelle Williams’ voice in this is very annoying
    • Glad the movie ended up recognizing how dumb she sounds
  • The movie’s plot revolving around finally looking at yourself as beautiful (no matter how your mind was changed or not) is a good message to send out but it felt weird when people dramatically started looking at Renee like she was crazy for looking at herself that way
    • People don’t openly treat “non perfect people” so rudely and disrespectful…or do they?
  • Of course, the movie shifts to where Renee starts acting like one of those uppity girls and treating the “regular” people different
    • There’s even the typical “treat your friends like crap because you feel like you’re better than them now” scene
    • Was hoping it wouldn’t and instead find another way to have some conflict
    • This is when the movie trends downward
  • The “spell” Renee was under was put into effect and broken in a dumb manner
    • Then the way Renee starts acting after it’s broken is just ridiculous
  • The movie was actually funny. I didn’t expect it, especially from a PG-13 Schumer movie
    • It wasn’t so much so during the scrambled weak third act
  • The message is good but it needs a better story
  • To Sum it Up: Schumer, once again, showed she is funny but she just has to pick movies with better all-around stories

RATING: Might Stream

 

P.S. I have returned to my rating scale that I used to use but with a slight update. There are four different levels. Below is each level in order from best to worse and what each one means.

Must Own = A movie that is so good that I must add it to my Blu-ray collection when it comes out.

Would Accept as a Gift = I enjoyed the movie but don’t necessarily have to buy it (especially if I don’t have the funds to) myself but I would take it if someone bought it for me.

Might Stream = A movie that if I have the urge to watch again then I’ll just stream it from somewhere

Never See Again = Very simple. I don’t want to ever see this movie again.
