Are You Screening Podcast – I Feel Pretty Review

We’ve hoped for great things from Amy Schumer with every film, though some have made hope difficult, but I Feel Pretty really seemed like one that might give us a good payoff. While the premise has a bit of built-in goofiness, so did Big, and that movie claimed a stranglehold on a generation. More importantly, while you might dig deep into Big to find themes of enjoying life, or embracing the child inside, I Feel Pretty looked to be a wild romp that hit a little harder on the themes it had in store for us.

You’d love to see a movie that could balance humor with a powerful message on body confidence, positive self-image, and generally ditching societal attitudes on beauty, but does I Feel Pretty actually manage either?

We’ll let you know how things turned out, and perhaps share a bit of industry news.

In I FEEL PRETTY a woman who struggles with feelings of deep insecurity and low self-esteem, that hold her back everyday, wakes from a brutal fall in an exercise class believing she is suddenly a supermodel. With this newfound confidence she is empowered to live her life fearlessly and flawlessly, but what will happen when she realizes her appearance never changed?
