Written and directed by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, the writers of He’s Just Not That Into You and Never Been Kissed, the timely rom-com stars Schumer as a woman who is dealing with feelings of inadequacy every single day who takes a tumble and when she wakes up, she believes she’s the most beautiful and capable woman on the planet. This new confidence empowers her to be more fearless even though her appearance never actually changed.
I know for a fact that this movie is not my kind of thing, mainly because I haven’t been fan of Kohn and Silberstein’s other high-concept rom-coms. Then again, they never directed one of their feature screenplays before I Feel Pretty, so maybe that will be the difference-maker for their latest film. And of course, Schumer is very funny and probably still has a fanbase despite last year’s disappointing comedy Snatched.
This high-concept comedy co-stars Michelle Williams, Rory Scovel, Emily Ratajkowski, Aidy Bryant, Busy Phillips, Tom Hopper, Naomi Campbell and Lauren Hutton, and you can watch the new trailer below.
