Critic Reviews for Lbs.
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.
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.
Audience Reviews for Lbs.
I hope more people see this film, as it shows just how heartbreaking of an epidemic obesity really is, from a very personal, introverted look.
Great topic and well acted by people I'd never seen before giving it a feeling of reality. Did the actor gain all that weight just to play this role? I'd really like to know the answer to that! As a past overeater myself, I was really excited to see the transformation in Neil, and his maturation, but the ending was a let down. He was regaining the weight and satisfied with himself. I'm all for being happy with one's self, but not a fat, unhealthy, addicted self. Sorry. That's unacceptable to me.
I thought this was a documentary until I started watching it - I couldn't get past the poor quality of film and acting.
