I never said that being fat is the only thing they need to overcome, all I said is that it is something they need to overcome, so why not be realistic in the film. Movies with fat people aren't ONLY about overcoming being fat, they have other things to overcome as well. Hell Hairspray wasn't even about overcoming being fat cuz she was totally happy with herself the entire time (as far as I remember). It was about other people overcoming her fat. AND it was about overcoming racism.So the only point of a fat persons life is to overcome the adversities of being fat?
This is thier spiritual lot?
erm..well..there are a plethora of adversities for fat people to overcome other than fat for the sake of the plot of a good film!!
And yeah, dims is a great site for people overcomming adversity..or comming over pics of others.. i agree..
maby they should make a "Dims the movie"!
And to answer your question i hate/am bored with one dimensional fat people in films.. I hate it because it doesnt really send all that good a message out at all (That all fat peoples lives only involve fat issues and nothing else).
Yeah its great to get the message out "thats who we are and thats how its going to stay" but can we do it with more explosions, espionage plots, car chases, narrative non fat and involving the lesbian gangstar genre?
oh and btw "hairspray" is acceptable (both origional and musical) cause john waters is a god.
And also Queen Latifa really isn't that large of a woman...
I am not sick of movies with skinny people...i'm sick of BAD movies. Make a good movie...skinny or fat I don't care...and I will watch it. I don't pick my movies by how much the actors weigh...
