Oh my! Where to begin on this one?
The problem with Phat Girlz is, that next to fact that has almost no laugh-out-loud-scenes, the protagonist of the movie, the “Phat” Mo’nique is all but likable. Yes, she’s fat, hasn’t been laid in 8 months, gets comments thrown at her head (which she can reply to) but that would make you think she herself would not make the mistakes other people make by judging her by her weight. Unfortunately, Mo’nique only likes men who are extremely handsome and have gone to the gym a lot. Next to that everybody who is thin is referred to as a skinny bitch, and if that girl happens to be white and have a black boyfriend it’s even more terrifying according to Mo’nique as “they are stealing their men” She’s constantly judging people by the way they look.
And we have to root for this woman.
So no humor and no likable lead-character makes this movie a bad one in my opinion.
