It’s almost election time, and that means that next week is going to be one exciting ride. Take it easy over the weekend, perhaps settle in for the Sunday movie on M-Net starring Amy Schumer.
Best quote from I Feel Pretty
“I think a lot of people are confused about themselves. They obsess over whatever negative quality they perceive in themselves and they completely miss the thing that really makes them awesome.”
I Feel Pretty Plot
Renee (Amy Schumer) struggles with feelings of insecurity and inadequacy on a daily basis. One day, she wakes from a fall believing she is suddenly the most beautiful and capable woman on Earth.
Renee has newfound confidence; she is also empowered to live her life fearlessly and flawlessly. But what will happen when she realises her appearance never changed, and she’s still the same old Renee?

The critics are divided on this one. Some like it while others hate it. Michael O’Sullivan from the Washington Post said “it’s a bit of mixed message to suggest that superficial self-regard is both desirable and deplorable.”
“What sets ‘I Feel Pretty’ apart is the inspired premise that Renee’s transformation takes place entirely in her head, while those around her are left befuddled by her sudden change of attitude”.
