    After being turned down to work at a hair salon because of her figure, a financially struggling hair dresser works to open her own shop.

    Haven't actually seen this one myself yet I've yet to find the english version, but what I've seen of the german version looks promising

    I'm LMAO at the coincidence here'

    Just the other night, I was going through my collection of VHS tapes, saw a tape with "CSI BBW" written on the label, and watched it.

    The major female character was kind of cute.

    Was the bash portrayed in the episode accurate? I've never heard of a "message box" anywhere, and the episode would have one believe that men were hard to attain and women were desperate (usually, the reverse was true).

    "Monster House" 2006.
    An animated and fun kid's movie about a haunted house in a suburb community, and the dangers of going near it on Halloween. This haunted house eats any trespassers.

    Constance
    Kathleen Turner provides the voice for Constance, the 675lb circus giantess. Constance herself is not in the film very long, but her ghost provides the haunting in question.

    "Shallow Hal" 2001
    This movie is about a man, Hal, who spends his life focused on the exterior beauty of a person. After being hypnotized by Tony Robbins, Hal can only see the inner beauty of people made manifest into physical attributes. He falls in love a woman named Rosemary, who he believes is the body equivalent of a fashion supermodel, when in fact Rosemary is a 300+lb ssbbw. Things take a further twist when he finds out that she is also the daughter of his boss.
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0256380/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shallow_Hal

    Hal is played by Jack Black.
    https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0085312/?ref_=nv_sr_1
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Black

    The SSBBW character of the film, Rosemary, is actually Gwyneth Paltrow in a body suit. However Ivy Snitzer, played Gwyneth's real body double in shots that were only neck down.

    The episode you are thinking about had Darlene Kates as the wife who rolls over her husband. The show was Pickett Fences.

    Dawn French played an overweight Vicar in the Vicar of Dibley. Great series.
