Monday Movie Meme: Trimming The Fat...



Feature Presentation...

MONDAY MOVIE MEME

This week Molly and Andy at the Bumbles Blog are asking all about movies featuring people who want to lose or need to gain extra pounds, so here's my pick:

  • The Meaning of Life (1983) - Mr. Creosote demonstrates the effective yet drastic weight loss that can result from a wafer-thin mint.

  • Thinner (1996) - Another film where a circumferentially-gifted character has a drastic weight-loss, but this being based on a Stephen King book he's still not happy.

  • Date Movie (2006) - Alyson Hannigan manages to lose lots of weight in the hope that she'll find happiness, but it's all to no avail as the movie sucks.

  • Wall-E (2008) - It's the future and the remains of the human race are all chubby and chair-bound in this feel-good Pixar movie.

Good job bringing Wall-E to mind.

I actually like Date Movie, some of the visual gags are hilarious. The black stunt double on the motorbike being a highlight.
