Amy Schumer “Feels Pretty!” Hilarious New Trailer! “Snatched” Love Too!

Amy Schumer Is Happy!

The release of Amy Schumer’s new movie trailer brought a smile to my face, and why not? It looks really funny!

I found this online last night – watched it and can’t wait for the movie. Schumer once again takes on the subject of physical beauty and turns it on its head.

Here is the very funny trailer for “I Feel Pretty”:

I have always enjoyed Schumer’s uniquely comedic take on her life, and the huge success of “Trainwreck” made her America’s favorite Comedian…but her time at the top was short-lived.

No doubt that Schumer was due for blowback – “Trainwreck” was a huge hit, and rightly so, but then she started hanging out with Jennifer Lawrence, which led to this “dance-off” live at Wrigley Field to “Uptown Girl”, an iconic song used in the film – and yes, they danced on Billy Joel’s piano – all of this probably turned people off – you decide, here is the clip:

Suddenly you saw social media going after her more than usual, and then she made another movie and the blowback was complete:

When “Snatched” came out last summer, it was met with vicious reviews and middling box office….but it’s really pretty good!

Schumer stars as a suddenly-single woman who travels with her Mom, played by Goldie Hawn, and it turns into a variation of “Romancing The Stone” – my wife and I found it funny and very watchable, certainly NOT the disaster that it was made out to be – check out the trailer:

“Snatched” is all over cable and on demand services, so check it out – it’s entertaining and very funny in parts!

So, months ahead of it’s opening, the trailer for “I Feel Pretty” is out, and it sure looks funny to me…we will see what America thinks!

  1. Looks like it could be a good feel good film to watch at some stage.

  2. Amy is a funny, sexy and very clever woman. I enjoyed ‘Snatched’ and of course ‘Trainwreck’. I think sometimes reviewers are jealous of success.

  3. Comment disappeared. Testing…

  4. I prefer ‘larger’ women, and the shot of her above (in the blue dress) is very much my sort of thing indeed!
    The film looks fun, in a sort-or reverse- ‘Shallow Hal’ way, though I suspect all the best bits are in the trailer. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • Pete, not sure if you saw “Trainwreck” but it’s really good, and “Snatched” was just fine as well – she is getting negative press lately, but I like how she continues to tell stories that are personal to her

      • I haven’t seen either of those, John. I do like to see large women being confident in film roles though, even if the idea is still ultimately to make fun of their size.
        Best wishes, Pete.

      • Pete, she tackles the concept of physical beauty in real, yet very funny ways…try “Trainwreck” and “Snatched” if they show up somewhere…her comedy is raunchy, so make sure it’s not “edited for television” or you will miss the funniest stuff!

      • She’s not even a “big” girl, she’s an average size and shape woman with a unique face. Her show and comedy has dealt with ideas of beauty, feminity, ageism and all sorts of things. Sometimes in my humble opinion brilliantly. In particular the 12 Angry Men sketch and the one about the loss of fuckability with Julia Louise Dreyfuss. I agree with John there’s always a year for a female entertainer, they never seem to get another year. Guys can have breakout years and then comeback years. Both can be survivors or perenials but you only get one year where you’re the ‘IT’ girl and that year for Amy was 2015. Trainwreck by the way Pete I really enjoyed as a film. I know she’s not on the radar as much recently and that the film with Ms Hawn didn’t make as much money but I had no idea about negative press. What the hell have been people been saying John?

      • Lloyd, she got a ton of blowback after she danced with Jennifer Lawrence – her comedy special was accused of “borrowing” other comic’s material, and the press around “Snatched” was really negative – knives were out, and it’s a cute movie worth watching…it’s what you said, women have a tougher time in this regard than men in the business…

      • Well if there’s an opportunity to dance with Jennifer Lawrence on Billy Joel’s piano I’m taking it. Some people. The material stealing thing I had not heard of, thanks for letting me know but I think its like you said. People hate it when you get big. In Australia we call it the Tall Poppy Syndrome.

    • I have a sudden urge to go to the grocery store and buy fruit melons and I don’t even eat fruit.
