This was a pretty pointless movie. The acting was more often than not needy and flat. Catherine Keener seemed totally out of place, as if she was trying too hard to be energetic and zany. The movie ended just as the plot was getting interesting. After finishing it, I couldn't figure out what the point of it was and why I had even bothered to watch it.

Nicole Holofcener's Lovely and Amazing may be the ultimate "chick flick." There is barely any action to speak of; all of the male characters are jerks; and it deals …

LOVELY & AMAZING is just what this beautiful little film is. Though the main characters are all bruised women - wannabe actress, flailing crafts-maker housewife, adopted African American 8 year old who grapples with obesity/skin color/genetic parent memories, and the mother of all three of these who places her 'embarassingly aging body' in the hands of a plastic surgeon - the etiology of thier dysfunction is tightly joined to their questionable ability to interact with men.
