    Wins no points for delicacy. Still, it does score some laughs.

    This film goes to some lengths not to be another high-school movie, which means prom stinks and no one can sing. Given Fat Girls' honesty, and its delicately drawn examples of social hopelessness, the sudden, sugary, puzzling finale feels out of character. It's as though the film forgot how to talk to us.

    In the words of his own character, this young filmmaker hasn't found his "inner fat girl."
