Phat Girlz

Critics Consensus

Although Phat Girlz has good intentions, it is sloppily made and thin on laughs.

  • While it's a pleasure to watch the likeable Kendra Johnson open up and come out of her shell, Phat Girlz belongs to Mo'Nique, a grating, belligerent woman who alternates self-deprecating fat jokes with drama-queen meltdowns and simpering pleas for

  • Jazmin's so fat that the movie reduces her to a single discernible characteristic, which is a telltale mark of many a wholly awful comedy.

  • The first word of the movie's title stands for Pretty Hot and Thick. The second word is never spelled out, but it could mean Good Intentions Ruined by Lousy Zingers.

    April 11, 2006
  • Barely written and stiffly directed by Nnegest Likké, Phat Girlz is an undernourished comedy about a sassy, overweight heroine.

    April 10, 2006 | Rating: 1.5/5
  • A thin comedy about a size-plus heroine.

  • The film is amateurishly directed and sluggishly paced with an anorexic plot. Even the photography, sound and costumes are substandard.

    What was I thinking watching this? It was a funny movie to mock for, but what's it about? fat people are better? Hello ever heard about disease, like diabetes? heart attack? Monique is annoying, I haven't watch her so called oscar movie 'Precious' yet, but she is truly annoying here.

    Better than I expected, (which was to have to turn it off twenty minutes into the film!). I'm not sure the message was that great, as let's face it, to be that overweight is actually a health issue, (and I am not having a go - I know some people really do struggle with their weight or have a genuine problem with it), but look, for what it was, which was a comedy aimed at bigger women as an ego boost, it was surprisingly watchable and even had a few laughs to it, even if it was verging on size-ist at times (Which was pretty bizarre to be "thin bashed"LOL). The whole thing is totally far fetched, but it has a niceness to it so I was able to look past that.

    So, this movie wants to make fun of fat girls (oh, snap, her clothes are too small! she only wants donuts!) but at the same time make you skinny bitch feel bad for laughing. I still can't believe I never change the channel whenever it's on 4379 times a week.
