Funny Face (1957)

A shy Greenwich Village book clerk is discovered by a fashion photographer and whisked off to Paris where she becomes a reluctant model.


I've had to suspend belief a lot over years of film watching. Dinosaurs being brought to life with frog DNA, Superman turning back time, even someone surviving a nuclear bomb by hiding in a fridge, but I will never be able to suspend belief enough to be convinced that normal people would be able to find Audrey Hepburn "funny looking".

The 30 year age difference doesn't make this a very believable romance, especially because Astaire and Hepburn are so mismatched in attractiveness to begin with.

Then on top of that, his character is an insecure, controlling prick, and the only way the script could save itself was by turning his obviously superior romantic rival into some kind of rapist.
