Acting/ Performance

Comments:  
When Schumer really locked in and committed to the role of this delightfully delusional character, she was great, but it took her a while to get there. Also, Michelle Williams was great playing the comically stereotypical idea of American beauty. It was nice to see her play a lighter role, and she stole the show every time she was in a scene. But overall, the acting was good from the entire cast. 

Writing/Screenplay

Comments: 
The story is simple and the joke works as long as you don't think about it too much. The script is funny enough to be mostly entertaining, and there is a good message about inner beauty just thrown in there at the end.

Cinematography

Comments:
There was literally nothing special visually about this movie, and usually movies shot in NYC do so much cinematography to showcase the city, but not this one. 

Costume Design

Comments:
For a woman that was supposedly so insecure that all she ever wanted was to be beautiful, Renee didn't really dress as though was insecure about her appearance. And even if that was her comfort clothing, when she gained all her confidence, there should have been a more major change in her wardrobe. She now thought she was the most beautiful woman in the world, so I thought she would dress differently.

Also, there is nothing noteworthy or special about this movie in this category as well.

Comments: 
The music was adequately picked and well placed. I particularly liked the use of Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys. 

Overall Rating (average the rating numbers above)  - 3.3/5.0

Recommendation: Watch! 😏

I Feel Pretty is the story of a woman who was so insecure that all she dreamed about was being beautiful, and by some strange magic her dreams came true. She became the most beautiful woman in the world, but it was all in her head. But what wasn't in her head, was her newfound confidence and fearlessness, and that's why audiences root for Renee. She is hilariously delusional, but also charming, until she isn't. And then you've had a enough of the joke, but it works for a while. This film is mostly funny, but after a while the joke just feels overplayed and you're ready for it to be over. But overall this movie will make you laugh, and delivers a good message about inner beauty. It also throws in a cute little love story. I think this movie is a "girl's night" type of movie. It has all the feels about loving yourself, beauty, confidence, etc.  So I recommend women go see this film with their best gal pals. I think this film is definitely geared toward women, but it is funny enough that it could be enjoyed by anyone. Overall, I don't think this movie is a "must- see", but if you do see it, I don't think you'll regret it.


Au Revoir,
