I have been working as a film journalist since 2010, dividing the first four years between radio broadcasting and entertainment writing in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. In 2014, I entered Fresh Fiction (FreshFiction.tv) as the features editor. The following year, I stepped into the film critic position at the Denton Record-Chronicle, a daily North Texas print publication. My time is dedicated to writing theatrical film reviews, at-home entertainment columns, and conducting interviews with on-screen talent and filmmakers, as well as hosting a podcast devoted to genre filmmaking (called My Bloody Podcast). I've been married for seven happy years, and I have one son who is all about dinosaurs just like his dad.

Courtney Howard’s Synopsis
Renee Bennett (Amy Schumer) is at a real low point in her life due to her low self-esteem. This may even be her rock bottom. She works in a basement office. Babies cry when she greets them. She’s uncomfortable with her Spanx-clad body. She’s ignored by the world at large. However, all of this changes when she hits her head during a rigorous Soul Cycle class. She awakens from her mild concussion magically transformed (albeit only in her mind) into the beautiful woman she’s always yearned to be. This shift in perspective sends her confidence skyrocketing, landing her a better job as a receptionist at the cosmetics company run by Avery LeClaire (Michelle Williams, whose performance is gold). She also lands a caring, supportive boyfriend in Ethan (Rory Scovel), and a more fulfilling life overall. Hijinks ensue from there.
BONUS FEATURES EXCLUSIVE TO BLU-RAY™:
- Deleted Scenes
- Gag Reel
- Being Pretty Featurette
I FEEL PRETTY will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on Tuesday, Jul. 17. It’s available on Digital HD today.
