Lbs. leaves you hungering for a few more insights and answers than it offers.
Those in search of a mirror for their own weight issues will find a deluxe one here.
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.
A small, illuminating film.
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.
A low-budget movie that is well-written and well-acted by a cast of relative unknowns.
An inspirational Marty-like pic that flattens out as it delivers its 'accept yourself' message about a compulsive over eater.
Well-intentioned but terribly executed.
Lbs. tackles a common problem with uncommon dignity.
An astonishing transformation is a big part of the story in Lbs., but it is not the whole story.
With obesity now a pop-culture as well as a medical issue, Lbs. offers insight -- as well as laughs and heartstring tugging -- into the struggles of a food addict.
I thought this was a documentary until I started watching it - I couldn't get past the poor quality of film and acting.
