Horrible Movie!
10 March 2020 | by bxmamiprSee all my reviews

I am so sick of these movies about fat people mad at the world because they cry about not fitting in as they stuff their fat faces with a non stop smorgasbord throughout the whole movie. They make everyone uncomfortable because if anyone looks in their direction they lose it and accuse everyone of judging them. I was heavy in high school and lost weight, so I'm definitely not judgemental. But this movie made me wish I could slap the mess out of the main character. Everything is poor me, poor me, she has the worst attitude ever, blames the world for her poor life choices, and stuffs her face with every piece of junk food she can get her hands on in the city non stop. Then you hear the whole I try to lose weight, I can't, you don't understand everytime her mom tries to help her get healthier because her dad recently died of Diabetes. This is one of the most irritating movies I have ever seen. It is an hour and a half of an endless self pity party for someone blaming the world for their bad decisions, and making everyone else uncomfortable and insignificant, all while stuffing their face with junk food in every scene.
