Review of the film "Pretty Woman on the Full Head"

Primitive and stupid, but funny farce about a well-fed woman who, after hitting her head, begins to consider herself dazzlingly beautiful.

evaluation

The plump, irresolute and underdog office worker René Bennett (Amy Schumer) very much wants to be as beautiful as her slender colleagues on the company of elite cosmetics. But she does little for this, except that she steals samples and learns to use them. When Renee begins to engage in simulators at last, she falls and strongly beats her head. Waking up, a woman sees herself in a new light. It seems to her that she has become a beauty-model. This gives Renee confidence, and she changes jobs, finds herself a guy and fascinates the head of cosmetic company Avery Leclerc (Michelle Williams), which needs a leader of the department of cheap cosmetics.

After spending four years in the television sketch show of her own name "Inside Amy Schumer," the New York comedian firmly established herself in the medium-budget comedy movies. In 2015, Sumer released "A girl without complexes", In 2017-m -"Daughter and mother of her", And now a third, the most absurd movie with a star in the title role, reached the Russian cinemas.

Among the characters of "Pretty Woman" there is no one younger than 30 years, but the mood and level of humor is a picture for children. And not the most developed. The main character of the film behaves like a complete idiot. Suffice it to say that in the beginning of Rene, in the middle of the night, he comes to the fountain to throw a coin and make a wish. And she really waits for the wish to come true! But in fact at this moment the heroine has not yet hit her head and has not turned into half crazy.

The film featured top models of Emily Ratakovski and Naomi Campbell

Further more. The whole film is a demonstration of the epic stupidity, spontaneity and infantilism of René, and the heroine surrounds the people who are not far from her. For example, Michelle Williams plays Avery as a "doll" in the clouds with an unnatural voice and bizarre grimaces. The millionaire insists she is smarter than she seems ("This is all my stupid voice!"), But by her actions this is not visible. The fact that it brings and raises Rene with her two brain convolutions, in itself says a lot.

"Pretty Woman" contains the expected feminist moralization of the type "No matter how you look, it's important how you feel", but the lion's share of her humor is ridiculing Rene's ridiculous pout. That is, the cinema simultaneously offers to laugh at a woman not conforming to photomodel standards, and to worry that these standards exist and that they press on those who do not correspond to them. It's no wonder that Western feminist editions hit "Krasotka" like a ton of bricks, and the defenders of the film justified the tape only by the fact that many women worked on it and that this supposedly in itself makes the movie feminist. It is difficult to come up with a more pathetic and weak argument.

Initially, it was assumed that the beloved protagonist will play British actor Rafe Spall

Formally, "Pretty Woman" is listed as a romantic comedy, but her romanticism boils down to the fact that a moderately charming bearded "loser" performed by a comedian Rory Skovela With horror and admiration, he watches as Rene more and more blows the roof. No special love is felt in this, and "Beauty" is more appropriate to be considered a caricature farce, removed "purely to spoil".

However, the standards of blunt comedies tape is quite consistent. It's energetic, stupid, bright, and it has something to laugh at, if you do not cause allergies aggressive idiots and an awkward reading of morality. Sumer and Williams are amusing enough to pull the picture together. But only to the level of the "three".

Since 7 June at the cinema.
