Media Wednesday Review – I Feel Pretty

While traveling I occasionally have an evening where I am done with work and want to just relax in the room. I tend to search for movies I haven’t seen that my husband wouldn’t want to watch with me at home. This trip I found, I Feel Pretty starring Amy Schumer and Michelle Williams.

This story of a very insecure woman that suddenly has all the confidence in the world was a very interesting premise. It somehow reminded me of the flick Shallow Hal from the 90s. Anyone else see that one?

Any way the movie does a good job of showing how very insecure the lead character is and how a simple powerful suggestion can make her feel otherwise. I will be honest as a larger woman I get so confused when I see women that are thin and dress well, etc. feel insecure about themselves. I do realize though that as women we all have things about ourselves we would like to change and I think the movie does a good job of showing that insecurity is a universal problem.

I liked that the movie moved along well and it didn’t have any slow spots in my opinion. I like the character arc and where the lead takes the story and the ending was actually better than I had hoped for an Amy Schumer movie. I’ll be honest I’m not necessarily a fan. There were some good laughs, some cringe worthy moments and some good girl bonding moments. Also shout out to Michelle Williams. Here character was well played. I am glad I watched it and wouldn’t want my money back! On a scale of 1 to 5 popcorns I give this movie🍿 🍿🍿.

Here is a link to the trailer so you can decide if you want to check this one out as well. I Feel Pretty Trailer
