Critic Reviews for Phat Girlz
even though this movie is a bit of a mess, it turns out to be unexpectedly sweet and funny. Its very amateurishness gives it freshness and authenticity.
While it's a pleasure to watch the likeable Kendra Johnson open up and come out of her shell, Phat Girlz belongs to Mo'Nique, a grating, belligerent woman who alternates self-deprecating fat jokes with drama-queen meltdowns and simpering pleas for
Jazmin's so fat that the movie reduces her to a single discernible characteristic, which is a telltale mark of many a wholly awful comedy.
The first word of the movie's title stands for Pretty Hot and Thick. The second word is never spelled out, but it could mean Good Intentions Ruined by Lousy Zingers.
Barely written and stiffly directed by Nnegest Likké, Phat Girlz is an undernourished comedy about a sassy, overweight heroine.
Audience Reviews for Phat Girlz
So, this movie wants to make fun of fat girls (oh, snap, her clothes are too small! she only wants donuts!) but at the same time make you skinny bitch feel bad for laughing. I still can't believe I never change the channel whenever it's on 4379 times a week.
Better than I expected, (which was to have to turn it off twenty minutes into the film!). I'm not sure the message was that great, as let's face it, to be that overweight is actually a health issue, (and I am not having a go - I know some people really do struggle with their weight or have a genuine problem with it), but look, for what it was, which was a comedy aimed at bigger women as an ego boost, it was surprisingly watchable and even had a few laughs to it, even if it was verging on size-ist at times (Which was pretty bizarre to be "thin bashed"LOL). The whole thing is totally far fetched, but it has a niceness to it so I was able to look past that.
