Storyline

Daisy is the love of Ken's life - she is also large... and very pretty... and on the dole. But Ken is a dreamer, all his dreams to make a fast buck ending up where they started - as dreams. With the rent unpaid, the bailiffs at the door and Ken's dreams in tatters, Daisy sets out to bring home the bacon and gets a job in the local factory. There she meets Marlene and half a dozen other large women who are all united in a secret passion - Sumo wrestling! Ken doesn't know what's hit him...

Quirky little movie
19 January 2003 | by (LA) – See all my reviews

This movie is about a woman finding inner strength. While the main characters are overweight it is not really about them overcoming this. They were overcoming problems that all people have. The overweight theme is simply a vehicle to help focus the story. That said, the women were very attractive and, for me at least, it reinforced that beauty is truely in the eye of the beholder. This movie has been compared to The Full Monty (first class) and Billy Elliot (second class). It is probably not as good as either but better than a lot of the typical Hollywood foder.
