Been there, seen that
2 March 2004 | by (Amsterdam, the Netherlands) – See all my reviews

A funny film that shows what it is like to be fat in this world where a lot of things are about looks. Sometimes the films becomes sad, but it is always optimistic.

Everyone who has been on a diet and has tried to lose weight will recognize the problems in one of the characters. It was very easy for me to relate to that.

The film does not mock fat people. But it shows the fact that we all know - you don't have to be slim to be happy.

We all know this, but not everyone really believes it and lives his/her life accordingly.
