Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer. Let's take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer.
Ah, to wake up tomorrow seeing yourself as something more in the likeness of what you suspect society wants/cares about. That's the general concept behind I Feel Pretty, in which Amy Schumer's character, suffering from low self-esteem and confidence, gets her head knocked and wakes up seeing herself in a whole new light. It looks like a Shallow Hal-esque take on "looking inward," and I get the idea that someone unencumbered from the modern trappings of societies labels can become "woke" and "free". And yet this looks like it just misses a beat in the message. I hope I'm wrong.
Screenwriting team Abby Cohn and Marc Silverstein venture into their first co-directorial work on I Feel Pretty after penning How to Be Single (47%), The Vow (31%), Valentine's Day (18%) and He's Not that Into You (40%). These aren't fantastic returns and considering they penned this latest as well, I'm not expecting much from the critics.
