Secular Movie Critics
…this movie has laughs from everywhere… I’ve been watching body-positive comedies since the 1996 remake of The Nutty Professor, and I have to say that this one doesn’t do anything particularly new. The core message isn’t expanded or delivered in any innovative way…
Kristian Lin, Fort Worth Weekly
…takes a while to get going, but it eventually finds its groove and proves to be an amusing showcase for Schumer’s talents. …
Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
…a mixture of good intentions, a wobbly tone, and a plastic script, and it debuts a somewhat kinder, softer Schumer than the in-your-face comic trainwreck of “Trainwreck” (2015). I’m not sure that’s an improvement. …
Ty Burr, The Boston Globe
…It’s just not funny or fresh enough, and that has everything to do with the material and how it’s handled visually, and nothing to do with the people on the screen. …
Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
…veers into cheap and easy enough times to be misinterpreted. When it’s good, though, and when Schumer’s fully locked into her take-no-prisoners charm assault, it’s pretty undeniably delightful stuff. …
Emily Yoshida, New York Magazine
…And I feel underwhelmed… the film veers between inspired and strained and finally settles into the realm of self-improvement pop psychology…
Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter
…while it does ultimately deliver life lessons of empowerment coming from within, it also plays on perceptions of Schumer’s appearance for misguided laughs (witness a lengthy erotic dance set-piece) and stirs up a hornets' nest of issues around body shaming, privilege (Schumer is white, affluent, attractive) and beauty ideals that it fails to reconcile within its comedic, almost fairy-tale tone. … [2/5]
Ian Freer, Empire [UK]
…an honest-to-God fiasco. Virtually every single aspect of this rigidly unfunny comedy is botched, from the characters to the plot, the themes to the core message. …
