Synopsis

Starring the hilarious Mo ‘Nique as Jazmin Biltmore, a smart-mouthed aspiring fashion designer, PHAT GIRLZ is an edgy comedy about two frustrated plus-size women obsessed with their weight while struggling to find love and acceptance in a world full of “hot bodied” babes. The PHAT GIRLZ are thrown a major curve ball when they meet the men of their dreams who come from a culture where big is better.

Dove Review

“Phat Girlz” is one of those films that had real potential; it’s underlying message is important – especially to women who covet the unattainable American image of beauty, producing what one of the film’s key characters described as a “hopelessly insecure and incurably unhappy” generation of young people. Unfortunately, the film was also laden with nudity, harsh language, and sex, preventing it from receiving Dove’s approval.
