Lbs. addresses its all-too-relevant topic with subtlety, sensitivity and welcome doses of humor.

Truthfulness, along with the movie's emotional honesty and narrative polish, help tag this NY-grown indie as one to seek out.

Those concerned with obesity issues may find "Lbs." authentic and inspirational. Otherwise it's an earnest little low-budget indie without much to distinguish it.

Lbs. makes for an alternately sad and funny companion piece to last year's (slightly funnier and darker) Big Fan, only with burritos instead of the New York Giants.

Kudos to Matthew Bonifacio for crafting an inspirational, humorous portrait of an individual grappling with an addiction that, unlike heroin or alcohol, has rarely been addressed in film.

Matthew Bonifacio's idiosyncratic portrait of one man's struggle to get control of his appetites.

The intimately personal chronicle is more impressive for Famiglietti's disarming self-exposure than for any fully formed cinematic style or consistency of tone, but the modest production has a genuine, warm spirit.
