How? Why?
27 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Who lets these "ideas" (and I use the term loosely) get past the execs? I've got a couple of famous bridges I'd like to sell the studio who released this. $1 million each, and guess what? Yep, they're already built... The "skinny bitches" joke she uses is so old. And really, there is nothing healthy about being overweight. Many Americans can't even fit into an MRI machine these days. That is sad and embarrassing. Not everyone thinks fat is unattractive, but there's a big difference between a "few extra pounds" (Few: adj.- Amounting to or consisting of a small number) and being way overweight. I have seen plenty of human examples that prove a person can lose the weight if they want to, most people just don't really want to put in the exercise or eat the right foods. I also found it amusing that there were no fat guys in this movie, just really ripped doctors. Only thing that made me laugh. So I guess fat guys are nasty but "phat girlz" are hot and should have the hottest men? Most people go for mates who, physically, have similar attributes in terms of weight and physical appearance. So I doubt these dudes would be all about the "phat."
