    Peter Hartlaub San Francisco Chronicle

    Clumsily directed yet entertainingly written by Oakland native Nnegest Likké, Phat Girlz is like "Rocky" with cellulite. Or maybe "Pretty Woman" without all the bony butts. It has a lot of heart and soul, but it's almost never mean-spirited. show more

    The plus-size personality of comic actress Mo'Nique fills the screen in Phat Girlz, a sweet, if thinly plotted tale. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    The writing is rudimentary and the direction often awkward, but Mo'Nique would confound a veteran director. show more

    This movie was so touching to a fellow phat girl. The trials and tribulations, and the assumptions, that people make about the fat and thin of this world. Keeping us from being who we truly are. A very good movie worth watching many times over!
