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.

Jazmin throws a TV set out the window. It lands and breaks on the sidewalk, as if the sidewalk is right up against the house. Later, in a wide shot of the
home, you can clearly see there's no sidewalk near the house. See more »

How Stella Got Her Groove Fat
If you recall How Stella Got Her Groove Back, this film will ring like deja vu to you. Even the heart throb's accent is similar. This time instead of the obstacle to over come being age and ageism, it is weight and society's bias against heavy women. Laughs are spattered through out, but there are plenty of messages bout inner beauty. Think of the film as How Stella Got Her Groov Fat. I seem to have seen the leading actor in k mart store style clothing adds so i think that he is a model. His buddy who goes for the supporting actress looks familiar as having played clean cut guys without the accent in past films. Sloppy as it wants to be, the movie is not bad if you go in knowing roughly what to expect. I anticipate some becoming annoyed with the lead actresses soap box and presumed indictment of skinny people. Many will overlook this flaw as a point in which the movie was making...she was flawed and needed entire film in which to get somewhat better.
