I Feel Pretty

I really like Amy Schumer, but, boy, is this a disappointment. "I Feel Pretty" wants to say something about how women see themselves and how the culture impacts their self-esteem, but its message is muddled and contradicted by various plot points. And it wants to be hilarious, but its stabs at comedy are often strained. I will say that Michelle Williams amuses as a bubble-voiced cosmetics honcho. Schumer remains funny and engaging as a woman who develops a sense of confidence when, thanks to a bump on the head, she suddenly sees herself as thin and gorgeous.
