"Muffin Top: A Love Story" is the story of Suzanne (Cathryn Michon) a Women's Studies Pop Culture professor at Malibu University, who studies images of women in the media for a living, and yet is made insecure by the constant parade of female perfection that is our airbrushed culture. She has been going through IVF treatments to get pregnant by her network executive husband (Diedrich Bader), but discovers on her birthday, that her husband has knocked up his younger, skinnier, co-worker (Haylie Duff) and wants a divorce. Happy Birthday! She goes on to find a more authentic version of who she really is, despite the delights of being suddenly single in Los Angeles, where low self-esteem for women is their number one export to the world.Written by
Muffin Top: A Love Story, is a hilarious send-up of the lengths to which women will travel in their search for physical beauty (as determined by the media and our celebrity-obsessed culture) and acceptance by others (most notably, the male of the species). Congratulations to co-writer, director and star Cathryn Michon, who birthed this delightful rom-com, with strong support from a smart script, stellar cast, and Kickstarter. Michon, who based the movie on her book, "The Grrl Genius Guide to Sex (With Other People)," is a hoot and a half as a professor of women's studies, picking up the pieces and striving for perfection after her jerky Hollywood-bigwig husband kicks her to the curb for someone younger and thinner with fuller lips. Michon, who cut her eye teeth doing stand-up in LA, is a standard bearer for the broad, physical comedy of Lucille Ball and Carol Burnett. That she's a stunning blonde in stiletto heels adds to her pitch-perfect comedic performance. The well-paced script (by Michon and real-life partner W. Bruce Cameron) and superb acting (Marissa Jaret Winokur, David Arquette and Diedrich Bader, to name a few) make for a rollicking good time with an important message: Women must learn to love themselves as they are," not 5 pounds from now." Kudos to Surprise Hit Films for a laugh-out-loud, heartwarming story. Muffin Top will touch anyone who's ever: had a body-image problem (Show of hands, please. Who has not?); fallen in love, been dumped, and bounced back― stronger and more beautiful than ever. Don't take my word for it. See Muffin Top ASAP. And share it with your friends. www.muffintopmovie.com
