Storyline

Superstar comedienne Mo'Nique is hilarious as a sassy, plus-sized fashion designer who's tired of taking no for an answer in this delightful comedy about living life to the fullest. Jazmin Biltmore (Mo'Nique) has big plans for large ladies - she's designed a sexy line of clothes for curvaceous women like herself. But when she can't get funding for her designs or meet a man who appreciates her unique physique, Jazmin's patience starts running thin. That is, until she wins an all-expense-paid trip to a resort in Palms Springs, where she just might just meet the man of her dreams.

A gaping black hole of emptiness!
24 June 2006 | by matthrinSee all my reviews

A fair warning to all the movie fans out there, this movie was absolutely HORENDOUS! I wanted my two hours back! I had seen some of Monique's stand up before and I thought to myself "Hey...she was sort of funny before, and I've got some time to kill...why not?" Long story short...BIG MISTAKE! The plot was awful, the characters were not funny, and lets just say I've seen better acting watching old tapes of my elementary school plays. Now, on the slight upside, there were some funny parts, but for the other 99% of the movie, I was deciding weather to cry for Monique for making this movie or for me because I could have taken my 10 dollars and done something much more entertaining. A word to the wise...under any circumstances ...do NOT see this movie!....beware of Phat Girlz!
