Trailer Bulletin: Phat Girlz

by | February 2, 2006 | Comments

Fox Searchlight is about to dole out some "Phat Girlz" love. It’s a comedy in which Mo’Nique travels to California, where her fatness proves inevitably hilarious. Click here to see the trailer, and then stop back to tell me which was funnier: the "yo mama" joke or the "fat woman eats ice cream" shtick.

"An edgy comedy about two frustrated plus-size women obsessed with their weight while struggling to find love and acceptance in a world full of "hot bodied" babes. The PHAT GIRLZ are thrown a major curve ball when they meet the men of their dreams in the most unexpected of ways."

Co-starring Jimmy Lean-Louis, Jack Noseworthy, and Eric Roberts (?), "Phat Girlz" invades theaters on April 7th. Unless it’s a direct-to-video release, which wouldn’t shock me one bit.
