I Feel Pretty

Rated 3.0

An insecure working schlub at an elite cosmetics firm (Amy Schumer) gets knocked on the head and wakes up believing she’s a perfect 10; her new-found confidence catches the eye of the company’s founder (Lauren Hutton) and CEO (Michelle Williams), sending her zooming up the corporate ladder. Writer-directors Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein concoct a slickly satisfying vehicle for Schumer’s comic everywoman persona, and she rises to the occasion. There are no great surprises, but no glaring missteps either (although Schumer’s climactic I-am-woman-hear-me-roar speech, practically flashing “Author’s Message!”, does go on). Williams, hilariously unrecognizable behind a squeaky cartoon voice and under a thick layer of the company’s cosmetics, all but steals the show from Schumer—and that’s saying something.
