October 30, 2007
Fat Girls' portrait of its small town high school milieu feels immediate and authentic even when the story's perfunctory machinations don't.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
November 4, 2007
Amateurish to distraction, this modern-day satire about growing up gay in a small town has such a minimal pulse that you may well wonder if first-time writer/director/actor Ash Parish didn't burn his script before shooting began.
Full Review | Original Score: D
November 1, 2007
The jokes aren't funny, the characters aren't interesting and the budget is obviously so low you can't help but wonder how they could afford songs by Air Supply and Spandau Ballet.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
October 31, 2007
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.
November 4, 2007
Ends up stranded between two concepts.

The film just keeps hammering away at the insight that conservatives are, like, totally twisted.
November 1, 2007
Fat Girls is fully in the "quirky indie" mold, populated by frumpy characters who sport slack expressions and enthuse about silly life plans.

November 2, 2007
An abysmal little conceit wholly lacking in originality, wit or technical style.
November 2, 2007
Proof that straights have no monopoly on crass, lazy coming-of-age stories.

To call Christian's film unpolished is an understatement, since Rodney isn't a particularly engaging protagonist and Christian badly overuses his sulky voiceover.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
November 9, 2007
Too crudely executed to make much of an impact.

August 3, 2007
Christian plays it cool, preferring to love his characters first, and use them as teaching tools second. The restraint is a refreshing change of pace.
Full Review | Original Score: B
April 12, 2007
Plays with the conventions of the teen genre while making the most of its low-budget indie roots
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
November 3, 2007
Big-hearted and often quite funny if crudely made, Fat Girls cleverly subverts the clichés of high school comedies to serve an autobiographical story.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
March 17, 2007
Jokes are hit-and-miss, but they splat target often enough to make this a guilty pleasure that homophile fans of both Napoleon Dynamite and American Pie might enjoy.
November 2, 2007
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
