Some people are upset about the premise of the new Amy Schumer movie

Not everyone is psyched about the conceit in Amy Schumer’s new made-in-Massachusetts movie.

Called “I Feel Pretty,” the comedy is about a woman who believes she’s a raving beauty — “undeniably pretty” — after falling off a bike and suffering a concussion. (The film comes out June 29.)

“My character Renee, she kind of has low self-esteem and she really wants to be pretty and just feel all the parts of life that open up to you when you’re just gorgeous, and then I fall off my bike in SoulCycle and I start seeing myself as a supermodel,” Schumer explained last week on Ellen DeGeneres’s show. “I look exactly the same, but in my mind, I am Gisele [Bundchen], I am one of the Jenner-Kardashians — gorgeous, and things start happening.”

The problem, some say, is that Schumer is already all of those things.

Comedian Sofie Hagen went on an epic Twitter rant after watching the “I Feel Pretty” trailer, and it’s hard to argue with what she says.

There’s more, but you get the gist. Anyway, Hagen isn’t the only one objecting to — or mocking — the film’s premise. Here are a few other reactions.

Schumer hasn’t responded to the backlash, but she has made her rumored relationship with Martha’s Vineyard chef Chris Fischer official. Schumer attended DeGeneres’s 60th birthday bash over the weekend, and posted a pic of herself smooching Fischer, captioning the photo: “Happy Birthday @theellenshow thank you for having us!”

Happy Birthday @theellenshow thank you for having us!
