at times a very awkward insight into the life of an insecure overweight girl
8 February 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Saw this movie in the sneak-preview, otherwise I probably would have never seen it... If you're looking for an easy-to-watch-movie, pick something else, this one, at times, can by quite a shocker...

That being said, I still feel that it is a good movie, awkward but at times funny. I think they did a very good job, the way you get sucked into the life of this young, overweight and insecure adolescent girl. When she finds the love she is looking for, it seems she will stop at nothing to keep it in her life! This leads to some scenes where I had to avert my eyes, I don't really enjoy watching overweight people line dancing, but that's not the worst.... by a long shot!! A terrible mother, friends who would betray her at the first chance they get, a boyfriend who isn't who he seems to be, not to mention his crazy dad.... Nothing seems to go her way... but she is in love....
