I Feel Pretty (2018) (mini-review++)


(If you’re curious, my review process. It’s also pasted at the end of this post. I don’t believe in Rotten Tomatoes. I just believe in me.)

(***all-purpose SPOILER ALERT*** there may be some in this review)

The mini-review:

I Feel Pretty

4 acting

2 story

2 directing

5 effects

5 editing


0 (out of 5) octopuses


This was a milquetoast combo rip off of Big and Shallow Hall. I didn’t laugh one single time. Do NOT go to or rent or watch this movie for free.

Why did Michelle Williams do this movie? And, oh, she was terrible in it, too. I didn’t look at the rotten tomatoes score (34%) before I saw it because, for me anyway, even looking at the score can prejudice my judgment. Especially since I’ve loved plenty of shittily reviewed movies.

I was gonna do a full review of this flick but it was just such pablum that I didn’t have the energy to try and squeeze one out.




(1) Shark Wrighter (SW) Score: Based on a sum of 5 sub-scores (acting, directing, writing/story, effects: cinematography &/or animation &/or special effects, editing) with 1 being terrible and 10 being terrific.

(2) Octopuses (0-5 🐙, with 5 being fantastic and 0 being feces)

(3) Octopuses are my unquantifiable feeling…not that SW score is scientific…but this one is even less so

(4) ++ This optional section includes any incredibly *brilliant observations that don’t fit into simple quantitative slices like the scores and octopuses *(they are likely NOT brilliant)
