Fat Girls is a charming and often hilarious coming-of-age comedy from 2006, written and directed by Ash Christian. The film tells the story of Rodney (Ash Christian), an overweight high school student living in a small Texas town, who is struggling to find acceptance and love in a world that seems determined to judge him for his appearance.

Rodney's life is complicated by the fact that he is also gay, which sets him apart from his conservative surroundings even more. He has a best friend, Sabrina (Ashley Fink), who is also overweight and gay, but who manages to be more confident and outgoing than Rodney.

As the story unfolds, Rodney is forced to deal with several major challenges. The first is his crush on a hunky football player, Jack (Jonah Blechman), who seems to be completely out of his league. The second is the arrival of his younger sister, Gina (Deborah Theaker), who has been sent to live with Rodney and their mother (Julie Halston) after getting into trouble at home.

Rodney's attempts to win Jack's heart are both sweet and awkward, and often result in humiliation and embarrassment. But despite all the setbacks, Rodney never gives up hope that he might find true love.

Meanwhile, Gina is causing chaos in Rodney's already tumultuous life. She is loud, sexually curious, and prone to getting into trouble. And when she takes up with a dangerous older man (Jonathan Caouette), Rodney is forced to face some tough choices about how best to protect his sister.

Throughout the film, Ash Christian brings a sharp wit and a genuine sense of compassion to his portrayal of Rodney. He captures the pain and frustration of being an outsider, while also showing how resilience and humor can help us survive even the toughest of times.

The film is also notable for the strong performances of its supporting cast, including Ashley Fink as Sabrina, who brings a real sense of joy and confidence to her role. Jonah Blechman is perfectly cast as Jack, and his scenes with Christian are some of the funniest and most endearing in the movie.

Evan Miller also gives a standout performance as Rodney's friend, the irrepressible Eric, whose constant ribbing and teasing mask a deep affection and loyalty for his buddy.

Overall, Fat Girls is a touching and funny portrait of adolescence that speaks to anyone who has ever felt like an outsider. It is a film about the importance of acceptance, both from ourselves and from others, and how finding love can be a transformative experience.

Fat Girls is a 2008 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 22 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.0 and a MetaScore of 47.
