"The Cleveland Show" : 2009 - 2013 Animated TV comedy show.

Voiced by Aseem Batra, Kendra Krinklesac is an SSBBW and neighbor to the Clevelands with her husband Lester. She is on the receiving end of nearly all of the fat jokes in the show. However, she remains confident in who she is, despite the negativity aimed at her.

In season 1, episode 19 "Brown History Month", Kendra falls off of her scooter, trapping Rallo beneath her. As she is immobile without her scooter, Rallo only has a little amount of time to get out before he is crushed. In order to escape, Rallo describes fast foods to Kendra in order to get her hot and bothered, so she can start to sweat, allowing Rallo to slide free. The scene is unapologetic in its sexual innuendos.

Saw the trailer for Brittany Runs a Marathon today. Looks interesting. Totally clueless about Ms. Bell (as the titular Brittany), I was intrigued that she appeared to undergo a remarkable physical transformation from overweight to more slender in this upcoming, "inspirational," "crowd-pleasing" Rom-Com. Turns out she wore a "fat suit" for the role.

Amazing to me that, in this day and age, Hollywood is still casting heavily made up (no pun intended) actors and actresses instead of hiring The Real Thing . . . or at least performers willing to be more authentic (e.g., Robert De Niro in Raging Bull and Toni Collette in Muriel's Wedding, both of who packed on the pounds for their roles). Imagine in 2019 putting ofays in "blackface" or passing British round-eyes as Orientals (Yoo-hoo, Tilda Swinton!).

But, that's the "magic of the movies," I guess.
When she was cast for the role she was 40lbs heavier. She made the decision to lose weight for the role, 40lbs, the last 11 of which she lost while filming. The producers didn't ask her to lose weight and they cast her at the heavier weight. So, although she did wear a fat suit, she originally didn't have to because she originally did actually weigh about as much as the fat suit simulated. I doubt it would have been possible for her to lose 40lbs in the length of time available for filming the movie. Which is probably why she lost the weight ahead of time. Also, she may have wanted to know what a person goes through and feels when they lose that much weight. I've seen Jillian Bell in a few other films, (22 Jump Street, Fist Fight, Rough Night, Office Christmas Party) she definitely wasn't skinny before and would not have needed a fat suit to appear fat. She was and still is beautiful and talented.

"Postal" - 2007
A Uwe Boll film (so you know its going to be horrendous). A loser in life, Dude has been fired from his job and decides to team up with his cult-leading uncle to steal from their local amusement park, only to find themselves going toe to toe against the Taliban.

Jodie Stewart plays Bitch, Dude's unfaithful wife. She lives in their trailer, watching TV and eating all day while enjoying the company of numerous lovers. She meets her end while trying to flee the trailer, only to find herself too big to fit out of the trailer door, leaving her and her lovers trapped as the trailer blows up

It’s been awhile but wasn’t ms Smith form MitHC getting a bit chubbier in the second or third season? Was that from all the alcohol?

Slither Slither (2006) - IMDb
is a fun B-movie featuring Nathan Fillion and a gargantuan tick-girl, among other delights.

I'm currently making my way through the (quasi-recent) Battlestar Galactica series and there are a couple of episodes at the start of Season 3 where Lee Adama gets... I wouldn't quite call it fat, but pudgy. He looks a lot cuter with some heft IMHO. Unfortunately, they also give him a radioactive orange fake tan which is not my thing in any circumstances.

This was a very controversial TV ad in Puerto Rico by 1982. The legendary singer and dancer Iris Chacón know around the world as "La Vedette de America".

It this ad the producers played with the word "culo" (spelled coolo in English) what is the equivalent to the words butt or ass in English to sell a brand of coolant. A well known classic!

That was outstanding! The timing was perfect, it wasn't overtly sexual, and it wasn't demeaning to the actress or females. If anything, it showed just how dependent men are on women. This guy needed a woman to come to his rescue. She just happened to have a big booty and was sexy.

Nice review, @Bama ! I forgot to mention that the male -- who is a BHM -- is a then famous Puerto Rican comedian, Che Manuel!
