"Fat Girl" looks Interesting...Has anyone seen it??
It's a good movie, but really not about Big Beautiful Women.

It's a coming of age story where fat works as a plot device--because the girl is fat, she is treated as somewhat an outcast (or maybe she's fat (in the logic of the movie) because she feels isolated from her family)--the movie does not try to pin the girl's troubles on her size (instead it pins them on her intelligence, in a commentary on what it's like to grow up female and smart), though it does play with the idea that one does not need to be thin to experience a powerful budding sexuality.

In any case, it's a troubling, confrontational film--one very much worth seeing, but that does not fall into the category of "BBW weight gain" in movies, by any stretch of the imagination.

"Soft Fruit" - I mentioned it as part of my FA film festival earlier. Good movie, with a very realistic depiction of complicated family dynamics. Most summaries make it sound like it's gonna be sappy and melodramatic, but it's not, because the characters are so realistic and well-drawn. It's also rare in that weight issues are dealt with head-on, but don't represent the whole focus of the movie.
Oh yeah!! lmao.. sorry 'soft fruit'! I must have been listening to billy holiday as i was typing that. I watched that when i was younger with my mum and i got really embarresed because of the scene with the woman masturbating in the car!! ..I remember the women all being so beautiful in it though.. i will need to watch it again! Also, wasn't the sister in murials wedding the fedee in the film 'feed'.? That film actually made me have a panic attack!

Yeah, 'Strange Fruit' would have been a slightly different movie! The masturbation scene was kind of played for laughs, but I also found it highly erotic, and shocking in the best possible way. I honestly don't remember ever seeing a scene showing such realistic female masturbation in a non-porn movie - by a fat or thin woman! (and my GF pretty much agreed) Seriously - the situation, the technique... Really hot.

That was indeed Muriel's sister in Feed. She does a good job, and I should really like that movie but I thought it was really terrible, poorly done even considering the genre. The makeup wasn't horrible (though not exactly realistic, either), but any erotic effect was blunted by the puking and all that. I think Feed and the doc Fat Girls and Feedees kind of killed off my feeding fetish for good.

When Obi Won Canobe returns to the town for the second time and he sits down with a family, the wife waddles over to him at the dinnner table and offers him a donut! She has definitely gained a few lbs since the first visit!

Has anyone seen a crazy French-Italian 70s film called La Grande Bouffe? It's four middleaged guys who decide to eat themself to death. As they eat they get horny, and invites some prostitutes to have sex with. Also, a female teacher joins them in the eating and the sex. This is a beautiful, big lady, with a big appetite for both food and sex.
She was played by an actress called Andréa Ferréol... she was around 25 I think when she did that pic... someone here must have seen that film!

Haven't seen this movie, but I'd check it out in an instant, if I could find it. Ugo Tognazzi was great in a bunch of films (La Cage Aux Folles included), and Andrea Ferreol was enigmatic in A Zed and Two Noughts. And Marcello Mastroiani is probably my favorite actor of that era. Plus eating. Plus sex? I bet this is a fun one.

According to Wikipedia, La Grande Bouffe won the director the International Federation of Film Critics prize at Cannes.

An old rumor has it that when Catherine Deneuve saw the film in Cannes that year, she refused to speak to Marcello for a week, because she found the movie so disgusting.

...still it's quite the film. French-Italian 70s cinema at its... erm, best. Or worse. Depends on the viewer.

Oh gak! yeah.. i have a bit of a phobia of people choking.. so that film was awful for me. :( I did laugh at the 'NO your 'MY' jellybaby" bit though.. and the bouncing bed "itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini" bit! I think that film would be much better..if at the end the detective guy became a gainer and entered into a homo relationship with the weird feeder guy.. who would have had to have therapy of course cause he was a nutter! ...hmm..and while i'm the director.. murials wedding feedee lady would come back as a zombie and eat them both!! hmm ..remind me NEVER to write a script!! lmao

Oh yeah! I'd forgotten about that one. Andréa Ferréol was a smallish BBW who brought a smoldering appetite for sex and food to the proceedings at a point where the men were growing weary of their own debauchery. She also cooked the huge final meal for the men, at one point rolling out the bread dough and making an impression of her naked ass in the top of the loaf. (I don't know if this link will work here: http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3535968512/tt0070130.) I'm flashing on how the jello molds of her breasts jiggled enticingly on the tray as she brought out dessert. Ooh la la!

Some people might not know of Yeardley Smith the person who played the wife of the just married couple in the 1986 film "Maximum Overdrive" she was kind of hot. Also in "Epic Movie", Carmen Electra does where a fat suit while have sex with that nerdy guy. Also I did see at one point "Real Women Have Curves". I also have to say the mother in Gilbert Grape was so creative, and it really shows the downside of being immobile.

Isn't Yeardley Smith also Lisa on the Simpsons?

NO, but i would like to.
I also loved 'ma larkin' (pam ferris) in 'the darling buds of may'.. technically its not a film but she is always very decedant and eats roast chicken dinners in the bath. I actually read the book 'The pa larkin chronichals' which is a Total Fa book! Anyway, Pam ferris is also in 'Matilda' but she is kinna scary in that.. still hot though!!
She also played AUNT Marge in HP Prisoner of Azkaban. Starts out big and gets bigger quickly. even if inflation doesn't count as WG :p
