One of those films that pretends it’s all about how beauty isn’t just found in physical appearances, then spends the entire runtime scrutinising and judging people’s physical appearances. It’s a thoroughly mean-spirited story, with everyone treating each other pretty poorly. At one point, Alice Eve’s “10/10” character admits her dark secret: she has webbed toes. Nobody in their right mind would care, and the protagonist even acknowledges that this barely qualifies as some kind of defect. But instead of brushing it off as a normal human would, his instinctive reaction is to outright reject her as “too perfect”. So basically, people are either too good-looking or not good-looking enough. As long as all interactions are keenly filtered through looks!
