Predictable, whiny and hollow .

It's so ridiculous it makes the movie unwatchable for me.

That she's a stunning blonde in stiletto heels adds to her pitch-perfect comedic performance.

The repetitiveness of Muffin Top comes in when you have several scenes catering to banal humor involving the humiliation of Michon's character, where we unevenly go from laughing at her to having to sympathize with her, almost as if we're going through the cycle of what it's like to be a self-loathing, schoolyard bully.

The "R" rating is for Rousing .

Well worth watching again and again.

An entertaining examination of "experts", anxiety, and acceptance.

Unfortunately the story was predictable, the characters hollow and the protagonist unsympathetic.

Cathryn Michon writes, directs and stars in this great film with an ensemble that is funny, smart and engaging.

It's clear that once they had paid for that dreary ditty they were determined to wring every last cent's worth out of their questionable investment.

The writer must of gotten bored with their own story to have turned this way at the last 35 minutes of the movie.

A highly entertaining and well written romantic comedy with a reassuring message to women of "love yourself now, not five pounds from now.
