Definitely not the trainwreck that "Trainwreck" was!

Amy Schummer actually was suited for this role and was mostly believable in the story. The plot was not deep stuff and the ending was a little predictable.

But if you need a chick flick on some rainy night, you could do worse.

I laughed in spite of myself. I didn't expect a lot so this was a pleasant surprise. Amy Schumer can actually act, too!

This is one of those great "chic-flicks" that everyone who has ever had low self-esteem, or felt intimidated by other people's opinions can appreciate.

Not too bad-a little preachy towardthe end, but all in all, a kind of fun way to pass a couple of hours!

This was fun with a message. Mostly a good story, I did not think her turning on her friends mid-movie was satisfactorily explained. It was needed for the plot, just not properly set up.

Didn't think I could enjoy anything staring the usually painfully gross Amy Schumer, but I did. Not too far off the usual character she plays but some chemistry here made her quite likable this time. The movie was successful as a fun, light and touching watching experience.

Amy Schumer's latest vehicle does its best to live up to the intended message - we are all beautiful, but it fails in a fumbled execution in the final quarter of the movie and Schumer's gross out humor does not appeal to everyone.

There are better ways to acknowledge diverse beauty, and this film is not one of them.

An enjoyable bit of fluff chick flick with laughs and romance. Don’t expect anything more and just enjoy it for what it is.

I too, was underwhelmed by this flick. I WANTED so much to love, or at least like it, but was left a bit empty and still hungry for the movie that might have been.

I don't know what you came in here for today, but the miracle is already here! You just have to open up your heart and receive it! I want you to look into the mirror and visualize the change you came in here for. Is it spiritual?
Is it physical? Is it emotional? Today I want you to look in the mirror. You're not going to see what you normally see. Today you're going to see what you've always wanted to be. So, you ready to get your life? SoHo, are you ready to get your life? Change your life! Change your body! Change your life!
-Yeah!

Well, with high-end products, we expect our customers to have high-end
makeup brushes. But regular girls put their blush on in the rearview, on the way to their crappy jobs. And they're going to be pissed when they open an $8.50 blush, and they have no way they can use it. Then you just wind up using your finger. You know, it never goes on right. Then you hit a bump, or you have an itch and you wind up looking like Braveheart.

Sorry, what, you've seen me holding these -- Pressed Juicery Greens -- 1.5.? So you got them in just for me?
-I've also seen you holding a lot of Brazilian models, but I didn't think they'd fit in the mini-fridge.

===
Do you have to say "diffusion" like that?
- Like what?
Like it means "low end"?
- It does mean "low end."
It also means "accessible." Or "thoughtfully priced." Say it like that.

Renee, the thing is, like, different kinds of men are looking for different things.
-Like, I mean, I know that my guy is going to be interested in the fact that I like true crime and inter-species animal friendships.
===
Well, only girls complain about things being a boys' club.
-Yes, good point, but I mean it's like a different breed of, like, boys' club. Like tattoos, C-class driver's licenses.

From what I can gather, just, you know, from my friends, those professionals at the makeup counter are actually a deterrent. There's these, like, beautiful statuesque women just staring at you, with your pimples and your asymmetrical face, and they just make you feel bad about yourself. I mean, it makes them feel bad about themselves. That's why these regular girls flock to the anonymous aisles of a big superstore. So they can just go in and buy their makeup without somebody standing there, making them just feel like they're not good enough. Like it's a waste of time to even try.

Uh, I think a lot of people are confused about themselves. They, like, obsess over whatever negative quality they perceive in themselves and they completely miss the thing that really makes them awesome.
-You, like, know who you are and you don't really care how the world sees you.
You're so yourself, too. I mean, you have no idea who you are.
-No, but you're honest about it. And it just makes me feel really, I don't know, close to you.
===
Yeah, it's called Zumba. It's pretty... Like a female workout. That's, like, a girl's...
- Is it?
Yes!
-I don't... It's a workout.
I don't go to gyms...
- Oh, my God... 'cause I don't like all the machismo, so I go where the ladies go.
Oh, I get it. Not a big deal.
-Get what?
You're that guy. "Go to the gym to pick up chicks" guy.

And then what I realized is that I could eat whatever I want, and still look like this. Shout out to my genetic makeup.
===
I'm just saying that if we want to get into places like this... We don't really care about getting into places like that.
===
How do you do that?
-Do what? I don't know, have all of the confidence?
I wasn't always like that.
-And what changed?
I started to really believe that if I wanted it bad enough, all my dreams could come true. And they are. You know?
===
I think that most luxury brands get it so wrong when they try to make a diffusion line. They treat it more aspirational, when it really needs to be... Functional. And practical and real. I mean, these women, they know who they are, and they just... They're proud to be bargain hunters.
===
Are you shopping for a gift?
-Oh, no, just kind of browsing for me.
Okay. Um... So sizing is a little limited here in the store, but you could probably find your size online.

It sounds like you are saying you got dumped. Someone said to you, "I don't want to see you anymore. Ever again. I don't want to have sex with you again." Somebody has told you... You got dumped?
- Can you stop saying "dumped."
Of course, I'm sorry. I... I just assumed that you wouldn't have to deal with stuff like that.
-What? 'Cause of my body.
Or something like... Your body, your whole head. Do you have every rib that I have? Everything really worked out for you. Where even are your organs?
===
I really want to be here for the ant removal. I don't want them to remove the ones I like.
===
My God, Viv, nobody cares about the profile. No one even looks at the profile. The picture is all that matters, and you get a picture of yourself and you feel, like, really good about it and you hide your double chin, you hide your acne, and you hide your cellulite. And then when the guy meets you in person, he's, like, so disappointed.

Look, why do you think everyone cares what you look like? Like, we're your friends because you were fun and funny and kind. And then I don't know
what happened.
===
People think that we are elitists who do not belong at Target, and they may be right. But when people walk into this office, I want them to see that Lily LeClaire includes everyone. Even bargain shoppers.
===
What if we didn't care about how we looked? Or how we sounded? What if we never lost that little-girl confidence? What if when someone tells us that we aren't good or thin or pretty enough, we have strength and the wisdom
to say what I am is better than all of that? Because what I am is me! I'm me! And I'm proud to be me! And if you ever get the chance to hang out with me or my friends, my amazing, perfect friends...

I've always wondered what it feels like to be just undeniably pretty. And just have all those parts in life open up to you that you only get to experience
when you look like you. Just once... I mean... I don't think that this mascara
or Wet n Wild bronzer can do that kind of heavy lifting. So... I'll just pray for a miracle.
===
When we're little girls, we have all the confidence in the world. We let our
bellies hang out, and... And we just dance and play and pick our wedgies.
And then these things happen that just... They make us question ourselves. Somebody says something mean to you on the playground, and then we grow up, and you doubt yourself over and over again until you lose
all that confidence. All that self-esteem, all that faith you started with is gone.
