Those elements make it hard to slot the movie into the happy category of quirky charmer and yet, while intriguing, they are never significant enough for the film to take on a larger personality.
An amusingly lightweight Israeli comedy about rebellious fatties who decide to use their heft for a greater purpose, A Matter of Size will have you ordering your popcorn with extra butter and refusing to feel guilty about it.
While the story may take place in working-class Israel in the 21st century, rejection is universal. So are most attempts to come to terms with it. Still, there's more than a little novelty value in the choices its characters make.
Herzl's approach might not be great for one's cholesterol or blood pressure, but it brings up an intriguing idea, one that isn't talked about often...: Maybe it would be better to be fat and happy than thin and miserable.
Part sports drama, part love story, this sweetly absurd tale of forlorn blue-collar guys pursuing a difficult goal... recalls audience-pleasing fare such as The Full Monty.
We're meant to like these men, and we do, more or less, but they've been simplified for easy digestion.
The humour in A Matter of Size is somewhat puerile, but the film does cover important social issues in its own gentle way.
Directors Sharon Maymon and Erez Tadmor avoid the temptation to remake The Full Monty, focusing instead on how physical training forces the characters to confront their buried psychological issues.
Israeli dramedy fights above its weight.
In the likable, if paradoxically lightweight Israeli comedy "A Matter of Size," an Israeli salad bar chef rejects the notion he needs to lose weight and learns to love himself.
A big charmer.
...it's gentle humor and band of underdogs will surely bring a smile. It's a unique cross-cultural comedy.
This is in fact more a drama about self-acceptance than the comedy it is being labeled as, and it is much more efficient in its decent first half than after, when we are left with a pile of clichés and artificial conflicts that really make this a pretty forgettable movie.
