Amy Schumer discovers beauty is only skin deep in this amiable body-swap romcom.
As Renee she’s insecure about her looks, stuck in a dead end job and is single.
After watching Tom Hanks’ 1988 comedy classic, Big, where he played a boy trapped in a man’s body, Renee suffers concussion.
Waking up she believes she’s been magically transformed into a different and super-sexy woman, only not having really changed at all.
Now amazingly confident Renee quickly acquires a dream job, a boyfriend and a glamorous lifestyle, but risks losing her old friends.
Four times Oscar-nominee Michelle Williams is scene-stealingly brilliant as Renee’s breathless beauty-brand boss, working overtime to compensate for the acting talent of co-star models, Naomi Campbell and Emily Ratajkowski.
Schumer is a gifted comic and an engaging presence who delivers a stronger performance than the messy script deserves.
Though by singing the praises of personality over physical perfection, it proves it’s heart is in the right place.
