FULL REVIEW: CONTAINS SPOILERS
Nappily Ever After is a simple coming-of-age story disguised as a romantic comedy that tries to say something about beauty standards. While the story is full of cliches and it fails to dive into its themes, the feel-good message of the film is not completely lost thanks to a strong central performance that carries it past the finish line. It could have been so much more, but unfortunately they just couldn’t find their tone.
★★★★★★☆☆☆☆ 6/10 – Consider
