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.

waste of time
25 August 2006 | by jenhedahlSee all my reviews

As a monique fan, i was very disappointed with this movie. Whenever I saw her in movies or t.v. shows i always thought she was absolutely hilarious. Naturally when this movie came out I was excited to see it thinking it would be a nice comedy. What i saw this movie i was not only disappointed but a little offended. To me, it seemed as if the movie was racist, for lack of a better word. Every white girl that i saw in the movie or had any part in saying anything, was a complete b***. There was also one part i distinctly remember when moniques character, jazmin, complained that one of "her men" was dating a white girl. "If I see one more white girl with one of our men, I'm going to shoot someone." I'm sure other people were offended by this comment too. Considering that I am a white girl thats dating one of "her men" Id like to speak on behalf of me and other girls that comments like that are rude and just not okay. people are people, and in the future i hope that i wont have the displeasure of wasting two hours of my life on a movie like this.
