Editorial Reviews

Superstar comedienne Mo'Nique is "hilarious" (San Francisco Chronicle) as a sassy, plus-sized fashion designer who's tired of taking no for an answer in this "delightful" (Boston Globe) comedy about living life to the fullest. Jazmin Biltmore (Mo'Nique) has big plans for large ladies ? she's designed a sexy line of clothes for curvaceous women like herself. But when she can't get funding for her designs or meet a man who appreciates her unique physique, Jazmin's patience starts running thin. That is, until she wins an all-expense-paid trip to a resort in Palms Springs, where she just might just meet the man of her dreams.

4.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting and Funny April 18, 2006
By Rosa
I have to be honest when I first heard of this movie. My first thought was another bad movie like the Cookout. To my pleasant surprise It was really good. It has a positive message which will appeal to anyone. Monique plays a salesperson trying create a clothing line for plus-size women while battling the prejudice that she meets from others as well as accepting who she is. A movie about self-esteem,self-improvement, self-awareness. I would recommended this to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun for everyone March 23, 2007
By Serene
Format:DVD
Phat Girlz proves that being big can also be beautiful in this entertaining, heartfelt comedy staring Mo'Nique as an aspiring fashion designer. Fed up with the mumu-style clothing in popular stores Jazmine decides to come up with her own clothing line. Her boss and her own self-doubt prove to be her biggest hurdle.

It was nice to see a film with actresses who are not anorexic and who are self-confidant regardless of their looks. Too often a woman is valued only for her physical appearance. I thought all three actresses were attractive, funny, and did an excellent job. One bugaboo: I would've liked to see her cousin develop a bit more empathy. The fact that she stood aside while Jaz took abuse rankled with this reviewer a bit.

I felt the male actors were all handsome and endearing. 4 stars. Entertaining and fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fat is back August 22, 2006
Format:DVD
I shared this movie with my tiny daughter and a group of friends. I was seeking a message of acceptance but got much much more. It is a great dramatic comedy with a great message, a lesson in culture and a romance. It is a good movie for women in search of acceptance (all of us) and for those who put others down because of their differences (all of us).

4.0 out of 5 stars Monique Strikes At Skinny Women Yet Again!!!!!!!!! October 1, 2006
Format:DVD
Monique strikes at THIN america again with this hilarious but uplifting movie PHAT GIRLZ. Even though I am not a big girl, I can emphathize because I have a very large butt and to most thin girls that is also considered BIG and finding my jeans is a NIGHTMARE. In this movie, Monique fights her demons and tries every diet in the world to make her feel happy about herself.She flashes back to her fat childhood into her adult years. She wins a trip to Palm Springs and there she meets an African man who calls her a Thick Madam and says he loves her size. Monique finds herself and learns to love her bigness in it's entirety and even starts a clothing line called Thick Madam for all the other plus-sized women who went through what she went through. This was a very heart-warming love story. You have got to watch it. I'm a THICK MADAM!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not what you think! August 25, 2006
Format:DVD
This is a very positive and uplifting movie.....and funny too! If you had second thoughts about seeing in the the theater - this is your chance to see it. You won't be disappointed.

If you have an adversion to fat or to people who DO NOT wear a size double 00, then this is NOT your kind of movie.

Go Mo'Nique!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars She's a brick house November 24, 2006
Format:DVD
Jazmin Biltmore's really "built"

A healthy, smart brick house

She feels that since she's overweight

She'll never find a spouse

She's into popping diet pills

To get down to size 6

But that's a feat for David Blaine,

And other guys with tricks

One day she wins a holiday

And heads off to Palm Springs

And never in her wildest dreams

Does she guess what this brings

She meets a man who really likes

That she's built like a dam

And although he's Nigerian

This is no money scam

She and her friend soon realize

That bigger can be better

She learns to love her curvy self

And not let folk upset her

This really gives her confidence

Her inner dream to voice

And soon she finds that she's the one

To give phat girlz a choice

A comedy with good intent

It's funny and it's smart

You'll learn that size don't matter

in the matters of the heart

2.0 out of 5 stars Good Theme But Bad Acting April 17, 2008
Format:DVD
I'd never seen this movie before, but while I was flicking through the channels, I stopped to look at an extremely gorgeous African man who played Monique's love interest and just kept on watching to "mmph" at him.

Pros: I definitely understand why Monique felt a movie like this was necessary. Women are always being ridiculed for not being the perfect size or having the perfect body that is rare in everyday living. As Jim Jones has said in (I believe) "VIBE" magazine, Monique has NEVER played herself. She looks excellent in every single thing she puts on, and I give her much respect for dressing to compliment her attributes instead of trying to pull off outfits that just don't work. (Note: Skinny women, medium women, heavyset women ALL do this.) I enjoyed the comedic scenes, especially with her shy friend turned nymphomaniac, and of course, the fellas were gorgeous, especially Monique's.

Cons: The acting was awful. When Monique went through the sad and crying scenes, it was like a really amateur afterschool special. I know she meant well, but I wish she'd have taken acting classes or found someone else to play the part because instead of feeling sympathy for her, I was rolling my eyes. I do believe that there are small women who are snide to heavyset women (although I find this attitude more in men than I do in women), but sometimes Monique can be a little TOO hard on small women. Not ALL of them are yapping at the mouth about someone else's size, or maybe that's just been my experience being in the medium range (not the doctor's recommendation but not obese either). Or, maybe more do but I just don't know it. Anyway, there were contradictions within this film.
