Storyline

Abel is a therapist who regularly meets with a handful of clients struggling to deal with the physical and emotional problems of being overweight. Enrique is an actor best known as the spokesman for weight loss product who loses his job now that he is fat again; he is also wrestling with his sexuality when he begins dating Pilar, the wife of his business partner, after identifying as gay most of his life. Sofia is engaged to Alex, a committed Christian who ignores her sexual needs. While Sofia is able to reawaken her fiancée's libido, when she begins losing weight she finds he's most attracted to heavy women. Leonor has turned to food for comfort while her boyfriend is in the States. And Andres is a scientist married to Beatriz; they and their daughter are overweight, while their son is not. And as slender Abel tries to guide his clients to healthier and happier lives, he's forced to confront his own issues with fat people when his wife Paula balloons out during pregnancy.

This is a bad movie. It has some few funny things, you will smile sometimes. Not laugh, just smile. Other than that this movie feels too long. The characters are very plain, they were taken directly from the "drawing board", they doesn't feel like real persons.

The performances are not bad, and because of that it's nice to see some of the characters in this movie, but the plot ends up ruining the movie.

The only attraction here might be to see the weight changes the cast had had to make this movie. If the weight changes were real (and they seem so) it's a pity these people have risked their health for such a bad movie.
