Critic Reviews for Fat Girls

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (7)

Too crudely executed to make much of an impact.

Top Critic

Ends up stranded between two concepts.

New York Times
Top Critic

Big-hearted and often quite funny if crudely made, Fat Girls cleverly subverts the clichés of high school comedies to serve an autobiographical story.

A modestly impressive debut -- especially considering that writer/director Ash Christian was 21 when he made it -- this poignant comedy will appeal to anyone who vividly remembers what it's like to be a high school outcast.

Fat Girls is fully in the "quirky indie" mold, populated by frumpy characters who sport slack expressions and enthuse about silly life plans.

Top Critic

Given Fat Girls' honesty, and its delicately drawn examples of social hopelessness, the sudden, sugary, puzzling finale feels out of character. It's as though the film forgot how to talk to us.

Audience Reviews for Fat Girls

This one is hard to find, I got mine from Net Flix, it wasn't the movie I was looking for but watched it anyway. Very factual with todays world, enjoyable, funny, and sad. Worth renting

Bruce Bruce

Super Reviewer


This movie has some laugh out loud scenes and is about a high school senior who comes to terms with not just being gay, but accepting and liking himself.

Glen Shrope

Surprisingly likeable. A unconventional story with a terrific message. It's not without some flaws, but, as gay movies go, this one is quite recommended...
