| Absolute Garbage!
I knew that this movie wasn't going to be particularly moving, but I didn't realize it was going to be absolute crap. The idea behind this film was to break barriers and stereotypes, but that can't be done if you keep perpetuating them at the same time.

According to this movie fat women are dateless, desperate, and can only attract men from far away, impoverished countries where being obese is a good thing because food is so scarce. Talk about building up a woman's self-esteem. And the whole "thin people are evil;they need to eat and get fat too, so that I can feel better" theme, is just embarrassing.

An obvious hypocrisy is how fat women are accepted in this film, but the only men depicted as love interests had to have above average bodies. It wasn't okay to ignore fat women, but it was okay to ignore fat men and even men who were just average.

Altogether Phat Girlz was pitiful and treated the idea of taking overweight women seriously like a funny daydream rather than a real possibility.
