Rather small
5 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

Small scale that is considering the size of the movie (no pun intended). And it is rather sweet too (which you'd think would not be helping, especially considering the fact this is about losing weight). But as the movie would like to tell you, it's not about pressure from outside, but how you feel about yourself.

Easier said than done of course and it does sound like a cliché. But it's lovely made and it is a really decent comedy about a theme that is a bit touchy. Not easy to please everyone obviously and having extra stories put in there, it still kinda works. The dialog is good and even though you know where this is going, the ride is still (or can be) a lot of fun to watch. Not excellent, but good
