Amy Schumer Has A New Movie With All The Standard Tropes You Can Handle

Submitted by: fancylad 1 week ago in Entertainment


About halfway into this trailer of our Amy Schumer's I Feel Pretty, you finally get the underlying of the message of the movie. The first half of the trailer sets everything up: Our gal Renee Barrett (Schumer) is frustrated with all the mod cons of online dating life -- "They only care about the picture," she cries as she laments not being attractive enough, even late-night blowjob after trolling Craigslist's 'Casual Encounters,' one assumes.

Then, Renee knocks herself out, only to reawaken as a conventionally beautiful woman, but only in her mind. We, the audience, still get stuck with Amy -- a pasty casing, filled with mayonnaise and the overeager thirst to play to the camera.

This is where the movie's lesson kicks in -- dumpy Renee finds self-esteem and happiness from within, which crosses over to her real life. The premises has been done before with far better results. The Farrelly Brothers did it with much more heart and and humor with Shallow Hal, but there are dozens of other "switched-conscience" movies that reduce I Feel Pretty into what feels like another never-ending SNL skit.

I think she was funnier doing stand up. You know.....before she became such an attention seeking whore with movies like this.

None of her work is available to see here. Not even this video. All I know of her is she's a self-absorbed ugly plumper who some people like and others hate.

squidbush LOL.  

I CAN see her having a brilliant upcoming career in Plumper Porn.  That is all she is qualified to do

Yeah, I didn't think there would be any positive comments on this. Ok, so she's annoying. At least it's not about explosions and one-liners. I'm sure if it had all that, we'd be good here.

As a fat chick myself, it made a WORLD of difference on how people responded to me when I finally worked up some gumption and self respect. I went from dateless to a full calendar of men who wanted to be with me. And I found the right guy, been happy with him for eight years in a way I never thought I would when I was young and thought everyone was against me for not fitting into a size 2. 

Maybe Amy Schumer could be funnier (strange how none of you have seen this, but you judge it anyway), but "Shallow Hal" was basically about a GUY, not a chick, and it was put out about 20 years ago.

Can you all stand another fat chick movie after 20 years? I guess not. OK, back to masculine men, perfect women, and 'splosions. Wheee.

Also, I'm betting a dollar here you all laugh hysterically (I know I do) at Pam's character in "Archer". She's actually the most breakthrough, funny, don't give a damn chubby chick character out there.

thubanstar I'm not sure where the controversy is here. She is just a comedienne making a living by starring in movies that will make a decent profit and make her a very rich woman.

thubanstar You're right. I haven't seen the movie yet. But, I have seen some of her other "works", and they aren't funny either. Trends point to this not being funny either.

Melissa McCarthy (another 'fat chick') actually has bits that are funny. Not everything she does is my cup of tea, but she actually has some appeal.

Shumer demands respect. McCarthy earns respect.

thubanstar   "As a fat chick myself".

Hey, i know PLENTY of damn sexy curvy women.  It is all about their sexy attitude, AND not going WAY out of their way to piss off their entire audience base.  

I can take her plumpness.  I can not take her shrill anti American mind and mouth.

Amy Schumer is a special kind of annoying. First she wants to preach about how looks don't matter and then wants to force you to find her attractive. This may be an outdated impression I have of her but she was never interesting enough to be worth a second pass. That position is not helpful though. Looks shouldn't matter, but they do. The real agenda to push should be that you don't have to find happiness on being found attractive. Otherwise self worth continues to depend on others and not on the self.

bearbear01 her corpulence is not really the issue.  Just a distasteful side effect of seeing her.  It is her anti Trump, anti conservative, non-inclusive ranting and preaching that turned off most of her audience.  

What does she EXPECT when she tries to star in a movie?  That we will forget all those nasty things she said to us in the last 2 years?  I do not forget, and i will vote with my wallet.  Hope her career goes down in flames and i never hear of her again.

spanz trump sucks and not because of her, off topic as that is. 
But, to scratch off the surface of this, it seems you'd be ok with her, as incredibly annoying as she is, if she had been pro trumpo. Then again...
Hilarious.

Okay-Good premise- looks really matter virtually for nothing in life, not if you ignore the multi trillion pound industry bent on convincing us otherwise. Perhaps though it would work better if that industry came under fire a little more?

To be honest, I would let Amy suck my cock.

At least she would have to shut the fuck up for 20 minutes then..

stifler honestly, I think most men would let dwarfs with facial deformities and leprosy do that, as long as they got them sucked.

emmettyville hmmmmmmm dwarves. I'd let Warwick Davis suck me off if he dressed up as Marvin for me (HHGTTG)!

Honestly, I could probably shut Amy up all day. I'd lean back and close my eyes. Then just as I was about to cum, I'd look down; see her frumpy fugly lump, and BAM, it would be just like I had finished eating the sandwich she made me for lunch....

Even with the burns and scars I'd ride Deadpool like a stolen bicycle before I'd tap Schumer !

This is the tyler perry syndrome.

I cannot find a single person, black or white, that has EVER paid to see a tyler perry film, but SOMEONE must, because he made shits tons of money off them.  And I have asked tons of people.  My only guess is that people are watching his movies and are just too ashamed to admit it.

I think this is the same situation.  No one like this chick or thinks she is remotely funny, but here she is with another movie, that will some how make money.  

It wont make avenger or star wars money, but it will make enough of a profit to ensure another shitty amy schumer movie comes along after this one.

Shallow Hal nailed it.  And to be honest, I think I would nail Jack Black before Amy Schumer....

Will it be a movie about her actually becoming funny?

Like the first 3/4 of the movie is completely deadpan and/or a drama, then it turns into actual comedy for the last 1/8 (I know I'm missing an 1/8, it's just buildup)
