Synopsis


Phat Girlz
A woman makes it her business to convince the world that bigger is better in this comedy. Jazmin Biltmore (Mo'Nique) is a plus-size woman trying to find a place in the skin-and-bones world of high fashion. Jazmin has her heart set on launching her own line of clothes for large ladies, but she hasn't had much luck convincing the moneymen that there's a market for her work. Jazmin is also looking for love, but she finds that few men are willing to look past her dress size and see the woman within. Jazmin is becoming despondent when she gets some good news -- she's won an all-expenses paid trip for two to an exclusive resort in Palm Springs, and she and her best friend, Stacey (Kendra C. Johnson), another zaftig woman, head out to enjoy some fun and sun. While on vacation, Jazmin meets Tunde (Jimmy Jean-Louis), a handsome and successful doctor from Nigeria, and she discovers to her surprise that Tunde is strongly attracted to her. Tunde tells Jazmin than in his country, large women are considered beautiful, and his friend Akibo (Godfrey) is similarly drawn to Stacey. Will Jazmin's new luck in love follow into other parts of her life or is Tunde's interest in her just a passing fancy? Phat Girlz was the first feature film from writer and director Nnegest Likké. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    This my favorite movie. It is funny but it has a good point. It is a good movie for anyone to watch especially thick females like me; it gives you confidance and self esteme. I was very depressed about my weight and was feeling down until I watched this movie! Monique plays a awsome roll and shows PHAT girls that they can be sexy and confident! This is a movie for everyone skinny and thick, male or female.

    This movie is one of Mo'Nique's bests! This is a great movie to get all the girls together. This is a very uplifting, motivating, hilarious movie and is well deserving of 5 stars indeed.
