Storyline

Pastry chef Macky has struggled with his weight for most of his life. It's not easy being fat, especially when you're secretly admiring a young socialite columnist named Ninia who gets the shock of her life when she sees Macky in his 300-pound glory. Macky hires Aira as personal trailer and in the process of losing weight, the two gained love and affection for each other. But soon after Aira agrees to accept an offer to work abroad, being the breadwinner of the family. Two years pass and the Macky who was once laughed at is now one of the most sought-after bachelors in town. Macky now has to choose who really is his big love: the woman he dreamed of all his life or the woman who loved him unconditionally? Written by Poppa B

Endeniably stupid and annoying
20 March 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

First of all, I like to commend Star Cinema for having an alternative protagonist. But the premise of the film puts down that "alternative". The film basically shows the greed in people's lives on wanting to be thinner to be loved. Much of the film is completer rip-off to films such as Just Friends and the-oh-so praised 200 Pounds of Beauty.

The story tells a guy wanting to be "fit" to be liked by the girl he likes, who is disgusted at him. He hires a female trainer, who unwittingly falls in love with him. Trainer leaves, and returns to see the then-fat guy with the girl of his dreams. The story itself has become pointless, forced and far-fetched after the first 45 to 50 minutes.

Kristine Hermosa has shown more acting in her supporting role here than any other roles she's done, I commend her. I still don't get it why Star Cinema loves the Toni Gonzaga-Sam Milby tandem, please...

I just feel sorry for Jade Castro, who made the heartbreaking Endo, because of this film. Why? She had the top-executives of Star Cinema breathing down her back to match up to GMA Films' B.F.G.F.
