Variety
Charmingly eccentric light comedy.

New York Post
A rare film that depicts a skinny male in a relationship with a plus-size woman. And, small wonder, Brittain's sweet charisma makes her the most lovable big woman on screen since Lynn Redgrave in "Georgy Girl."

Has the scruffy charm you expect from this kind of picture, and some admirable feminist pluck. But the story is -- forgive me -- a little thin, and the filmmaking clumsy and rushed.

New York Daily News
On my list of favorite sports, I rank sumo wrestling just ahead of the truck pull, so I'm not a prime candidate for a "Full Monty" wanna-be about female sumo wrestlers.

Energetic acting helps compensate for a contrived script and directing that's sometimes as heavy as its cheerfully rotund characters.
50
Too daft by half -- it might have been better if Ken were less loony, especially because his nuttiness verges on implying that loons love large women -- but supremely good natured.
50
There's a certain gutsy allure to the wildly improbable proceedings.
40
A feeble and self-congratulatory heart-warmer.
38
Falls prey to a boatload of screenwriting cliches that sink it faster than a leaky freighter.
