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!!!!

I thought this movie would be silly but it actually had a good story line and it had substance. It gave good insight into how big girls feel about being overweight & how they're frustrated with the options they have for clothing; such as frumpy options rather than trendy, flattering options. Great part of the story line is Mo'Nique's character works in a clothing store & she has great ideas for trendy, fashionable clothing for big girls & it's her dream to be able to have her designs in a store. She also designs & makes her own clothes in this movie & she looks fabulous in her outfits, esp. that "yellow dress." Did a good job with Mo'Nique's love interest by making him be this tall, dark, fine, good-looking man from Nigeria where the men love big women. They also added the skinny cousin that gave great laughs because she thought she was "All That" since she rcvd a lot of attn. from men in America then when she met the men & women from Nigeria they thought she was sickly since she was so thin.

Sometimes you just want to have a chuckle, and this is a great movie for that. The performers are good and sometimes a little over the top, which fits with this movie. Everything is larger than life and fun. I appreciated that the woman needed to find her self-worth on her own, rather than feeling "complete" once she'd earned the attention and affection of a handsome man.

Bought as a gift for my sister and she is very happy with it. She loves this movie and the craziness they get up to...I like the "message" about loving yourself as you are and not as people want you to be!
