    Tries to address the South Korean culture wide obsession with plastic surgery, but end ups skirting the issue. It also has "Shallow Hal" problems with trying to humanize a fat protagonist while trying to be funny. Also the main male love interest is a dick and very uninteresting as well, so a large portion of the movie is setting up a couple I had no interest in seeing together. Has some light, fun parts, but all of the above problems get in the way and drag the movie down.

    Cheesy Hollywood-style rom-com...too stupid, but it's funny.

    Its message --although we've seen it before in films like 'The Nutty Professor' movies-- is still strong and gut-punching. But '200 Pounds Beauty' is not a depressing movie, although it does start off as mean-spirited. It actually has a lot of laughs to fill you with joy.

    This movie is funny, yet at the same time meaningful and emotional. It's a really good movie. The plot was kind of trite, but the emotions weren't. Touching on the subject of beauty in such an appearance-oriented society, it's about a talented young lady, who in society's eyes wasn't "beautiful" enough. She, although amazingly talented, couldn't be anything more than mediocre because of her looks--an unfair, but horrifyingly real problem people have in a society like South Korea. She's pushed because of the pressure to look beautiful and did a head-to-toe plastic surgery. The audience gets to follow her as the story reveals her conflicted emotions about her change. While the topic is heavy, there were a lot of comedic scenes that kept the movie from being extremely depressing. Those parts really made me laugh and lifted my mood. Whether or not plastic surgery was the way to go, the movie ended up being a beautiful movie.
