To put it lightly, Amy Schumer’s I Feel Pretty isn’t getting great reviews. It currently sits at 33 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, and its Big-esque plot—which involves Schumer’s character getting bopped on the head and subsequently believing she’s a supermodel with rock-hard abs—is getting skewered for its tone-deaf approach to body positivity. That hasn’t stopped people from seeing it, however; like moths to the flame, our jaded age is irrevocably drawn to schadenfreude. Take actor and Oscar-nominated filmmaker Greta Gerwig, for example, whose baffled, frenzied reaction to the film was live-tweeted by one intrepid moviegoer.
And thank goodness she did. Gerwig’s behavior would make any shush-happy theater purist break into hives, but, as our tweeter points out, the theater was mostly empty and the majority of moviegoers were on their phones due to I Feel Pretty’s excessive badness.
Also, some movies simply demand live commentary, and the Lady Bird director had it in spades.
Her final review?
