Movie Info

A high school athlete learns an important lesson in reserving judgment after suffering a sports injury that blows her chance for a scholarship, and filming a documentary about what it's like to be fat. Seventeen-year-old Aly (Kaley Cuoco) is pretty, confident, and strong. She's a true star on the softball field, but after blowing out her knee, Aly's chances of winning a sports scholarship start to look slim. A firm believer in the power of personality, Aly thinks that overweight people like her brother and mother allow themselves to fall victim to their own low self-esteem. Before long, Aly is donning a fat suit and a camera in order to prove that obese people aren't pariahs. If she can make her point, Aly reckons, perhaps she can score a film scholarship. The second she walks into school in her new skin, however, the unsympathetic teen quickly discovers just how cruel and unforgiving her peers can really be.

I think that Kaly was to old for this role but she is the best thing about this less than average movie.

They tried very hard to get the point across that size shouldn't matter, but the truth is finding your friend (an attractive, outgoing athlete) in a fat suit is not really going to change high school kids that dramatically.

One would think that a movie where a skinny jock realizes that fat kids are people too would be great and uplifting movie. But I found this film to be only average. Maybe I was feeling unsympathetic today.
