Amy Schumer Stars in First Trailer for Summer Comedy 'I Feel Pretty'
"Things have really changed for me." STX Entertainment has debuted the first official trailer for summer comedy I Feel Pretty, starring comedian/actress Amy Schumer as a woman who suddenly gains extreme overconfidence and goes off to get everything she wants using her looks. Obviously she learns some lessons, mostly that "when she thought she was ugly, she may have been the most beautiful, and when she believed she was beautiful, she had started to turn a bit ugly." The impressive cast includes Michelle Williams, Emily Ratajkowski, Busy Philipps, Rory Scovel, Aidy Bryant, Lauren Hutton, Naomi Campbell, and Adrian Martinez. This doesn't look that good, even though they're clearly trying to follow up Judd Apatow's Trainwreck nicely, it doesn't have the same humor. Even the poster is terrible. Have fun anyway.
Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Abby Kohn & Marc Silverstein's I Feel Pretty, from YouTube:
Even though her appearance hasn’t changed AT ALL – Renee's (Amy Schumer) new belief in herself sees her climbing the ranks at the cosmetics company she works for, getting the respect of her impossibly beautiful boss, bagging a cute boyfriend and getting invited to rooftop parties. With her new confidence comes overconfidence, and even the tendency to treat the ‘less genetically fortunate’ in the same dismissive way that people used to treat her. Eventually Renee believes the spell has been lifted – and finally realizes that when she thought she was ugly, she may have been the most beautiful, and when she believed she was beautiful, she had started to turn a bit ugly. She learns that true beauty is not skin deep. I Feel Pretty is both written and directed by filmmakers Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, both screenwriters of Never Been Kissed, He's Just Not That Into You, Valentine's Day, The Vow, making their feature directorial debut. STX will release I Feel Pretty in theaters everywhere starting June 29th this summer. Anyone interested?

It reminds me a lot of SHALLOW HAL.

I was thinking the same thing lol! But without the heart maybe? The trailer was off a little.

Well, she's got her attitude. Hopefully that won't get her in trouble in the long run. So, although I do see the premise, I don't see where it's going ...

That made me smile, I'm not sure about sitting through it though. Lazy Saturday probably.

Expected to hate it, totally liked it. Maybe it was the auto accident I survived today, and I have a new appreciation for things. Either way, I actually wouldn't mind seeing this!

Samewise. She might hit it out of the park with only attituide. It's a good message.

I'd also probably get more enjoyment banging my head on exercise equipment than watch anymore of this ridiculousness. Couldn't even finish the trailer. HARD PASS. Schumer needs to stop making movies. Her time is done.
