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.

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.

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).

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!!!

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!!!!

In the large clothing chain where Jazmin Biltmore works the embarrassing plus size section is hidden in a corner of the store. Jazmin and her co-workers avoid it like the plague for fear of having to sell something from it to a customer. Plus size Jazmin makes her own clothing and always looks "Fat-tabulous!" Her dream is having her own clothing line in production and on the curves of other thick women; unfortunately, she can't get to the head buyer of her company and the bank won't give her a loan.

Just when she thinks she can't get any more depressed she wins an all expense paid trip to a five star resort in Palm Springs. Jazmin and her best friend, who is also thick, quickly learn that Palm Springs is the stomping ground for the rich skinny butts. Well, not everything... while hanging out by the poolside the three ladies are approached by a visiting doctor named Tunde from Nigeria. Tunde is instantly smitten with Jazmin, much to everyone else's surprise. The ladies are invited to a Nigerian dinner conference where they learn that there are indeed men in the world who know how to treat a lady with curves.

Unfortunately, Jazmin isn't used to all this positive energy and can't see the genuine affection. Her own insecurities cause her to self-destruct and she ends up sabotaging her relationship with Tunde, fleeing home to wallow and binge for three days on a bed buffet of junk food. She finally realizes she will never be a size 5 and that she has to start living now. With her new skin of determination she finds the nerve to approach the head buyer and sell her self. Next thing she knows, she's an international success in plus size clothing design in charge of a hot new line of clothing affectionately called "Thick Madame" in Tunde's honor.

I am Fat! I am not over-weight, obese, etc. I am Fat-A-Bulous. Now imagine if every woman could embrace their differences and become their full potential without worrying whether someone else thought so?

This is Phat Girls! Love Yourself, Your Big Booty, Your Delicious Double Mints, it is you, so why spend time hating it!?!

Please if you have any doubts of the above statements, rent Phat Girls.

When I saw this movies title I was skeptical, but eager to check it out right away. I had to wonder what angle this movie would take. It certainly was not what I expected, but it was Fab-U-lous-sious!

Any woman who has been made to feel less than will appreciate this movie.

It may open some peoples eyes as well. It is commonly known that fat women appeal to attractive and successful men worldwide. Some just havn't figured that out yet! Skinny or fat we can all be our full potential and become beautiful.

Imagine a handsome, kind, sexy, God-looking African (Doctor no-less), is interested in you because you are the most beautiful woman he has seen? He tells you this as me admires your round plush soft sweet curves. He is interested in marrying you, and respecting you, fulfilling your desires, and making you his Queen. Well that is just one tasty bit of this complex movie.

One of the tastiest bits being one of THE best kiss scenes I have seen in a long while.

I could never have imagined that my own life could mirror this movie. I was dating a wonderful gorgeous African King, when this movie came on video. I went to Africa, where the culture is rich and friendly. I was finally in a culture where my blessings were celebrated, and I felt like I was Giselle doing the cat walk down the street.
