Storyline

"Muffin Top: A Love Story" is the story of Suzanne (Cathryn Michon) a Women's Studies Pop Culture professor at Malibu University, who studies images of women in the media for a living, and yet is made insecure by the constant parade of female perfection that is our airbrushed culture. She has been going through IVF treatments to get pregnant by her network executive husband (Diedrich Bader), but discovers on her birthday, that her husband has knocked up his younger, skinnier, co-worker (Haylie Duff) and wants a divorce. Happy Birthday! She goes on to find a more authentic version of who she really is, despite the delights of being suddenly single in Los Angeles, where low self-esteem for women is their number one export to the world. Written by Cathryn Michon

a funny, smart body image romantic comedy
14 November 2014 | by (Dayton, OH) – See all my reviews

Cathryn Michon is a Grrl Genius, all grown up and taking on Hollywood's insistent view that women are only to be seen (and only then if they are perfect) and not heard. Enough of that! This movie is laugh out loud funny, sweet, smart and oh-so-worth your hard earned money. Michon wrote, stars and directs this ode to smart women everywhere who refuse to accept the media's vision of how we should look; and to love ourselves NOW, not 5 pounds from now. Change Hollywood, change the world. Kudos Ms. Michon -- you are the change we wish to see in the world. This is the only movie I have sat through more than once. It is that good and fun.
