Amazing
26 November 2006 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

This movie is very truthful. I would recommend everyone to see it especially younger women and girls. Im overweight myself but do not feel the same way some of these girls do. It is amazing to see how obsessive they are and the lengths they will go to..... It made a very strong impression on me and my friends. It is weird how far these women and girls will go to just to see themselves as thin. My friends are skinny at 110 pounds but some of these women reach 30 pounds lighter than that. I think some parents have a lot to do with the problems. The movie shows that. People can influence you in a good way or a bad way. In this movie there are even cliques. Its like high school in a hospital.
