Fat Actress is a BLAST!
14 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

OK folks. I have been hearing about Fat Actress for about 6 months now and my expectations have been VERY low for this new comedy starring Kirstie Alley. However, SO FAR this series on Showtime has been the funniest new show of 2005.

Fans of Larry Davids "Curb Your Enthusiasm" will immediately warm to the situational disasters, misunderstandings, and pure dumb luck that help propel "Fat Actress" through its first episode. Aided by cameos from Hollywood folks such as John Travolta and others, Kirstie plays herself, spending much of her recent life lying on the bathroom floor eating chocolates, and crying at the ceiling. It is her sheer desperation,cell phone smashing conversations with her agent, and the ineptitude of others that help her to launch her "New Career"(despite all the "groceries in her trunk"). Enough said. I greatly look forward to episode 2 tonight. P.S. Larry David...you have really started something....(Hollywood Verite????)
