What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Helen Herimbi Amy pokes eye of beholder.
Gabi Zietsman It’s sad to see Schumer follow up such a hilarious and honest movie like Trainwreck with this banal, cringy movie that honestly no one really wanted. Most women would be offended by this, and I don’t see cis men that interested in a movie marketed as ‘women empowerment’.
Jim Judy It easily could and probably should have been a sharper satire on the notions of beauty -- from both female and male perspectives -- and the cosmetics industry in general. Somewhat of a missed opportunity, I Feel Pretty isn't horrible, but it could have been so much better, funnier and more insightful than it is.
Tomatometer I Feel Pretty has a charming star and the outline of a worthwhile comedy -- but unlike its suddenly confident central character, it suffers from a fundamental lack of conviction.

Sandie Angulo Chen Fun but uneven comedy has empowering themes; some racy bits.
