Amy Schumer is currently gearing up to bring the comedy this weekend with the release of I Feel Pretty, and critics have finally had a chance to see it. On that note, we have combed through some of the latest reviews to see what people are saying about the film. As it turns out: it looks like folks are mixed on I Feel Pretty, with CinemaBlend's own Corey Chichizola praising the PG-13 humor while also noting the fact that it drags at times. In Corey's review, he specifically wrote:
So, it looks like there's good and bad to be found in I Feel Pretty. Corey doesn't universally praise everything about the film (in fact, he notes there are clear pacing issues), but he seems to think that it has enough humor and emotional catharsis for audiences to connect to make it worth watching.
That sentiment is shared by Vox's take on I Feel Pretty, with the added caveat that the film (for everything that it does do right) still feels unfinished. Vox wrote:
With that said, other reviews of the film have been far less welcoming. In fact, The Wrap's take on the movie seems to think that nothing in I Feel Pretty works. They wrote:
Similarly, AV Club's review of I Feel Pretty takes specific aim at Amy Schumer's performance as Renee, highlighting issues with her work as she transitions away from her R-rated comfort zone in films like Trainwreck and Snatched. AV Club said:
I Feel Pretty is a pseudo-body swap comedy about a young woman named Renee (Amy Schumer) with self-esteem issues who begins to believe that she's beautiful after suffering a head injury at a spinning class. In addition to Schumer, the film also stars Saturday Night Live cast member Aidy Bryant, Manchester by the Sea's Michelle Williams, and Vice Principals' Busy Phillips. Additionally, the film was written and directed by How to be Single screenwriters, Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein.
With all of those reviews in mind, I Feel Pretty currently has a 35% "Rotten" rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and we will keep you posted with more information related to the film as it becomes available to us. I Feel Pretty will debut in theaters on April 20, and you can check out CinemaBlend's full 2018 movie premiere guide to get more information on all of the films set to debut this year.
