  1. Reviewed by: Derek Elley
    Charmingly eccentric light comedy.
  2. 63
    A rare film that depicts a skinny male in a relationship with a plus-size woman. And, small wonder, Brittain's sweet charisma makes her the most lovable big woman on screen since Lynn Redgrave in "Georgy Girl."
  3. 50
    There's a certain gutsy allure to the wildly improbable proceedings.
  4. Too daft by half -- it might have been better if Ken were less loony, especially because his nuttiness verges on implying that loons love large women -- but supremely good natured.
  5. Energetic acting helps compensate for a contrived script and directing that's sometimes as heavy as its cheerfully rotund characters.
  6. Has the scruffy charm you expect from this kind of picture, and some admirable feminist pluck. But the story is -- forgive me -- a little thin, and the filmmaking clumsy and rushed.
  7. 38
    Falls prey to a boatload of screenwriting cliches that sink it faster than a leaky freighter.
