And, I am happy to say, the theater was packed -- so the public is ignoring the critics and voting by word of mouth.
Speaking as an overweight woman myself, the fact that Hugh Grant goes for the very attractive and very slightly plump Natalie who suffers an overabundance of slurs on her weight is a plus. I rejoice that skinny is out. Aurelia's sister is genuinely obese and we obese ladies get a lot of shit about it. My sister the doctor works in a weight loss clinic and harps on my weight. It is because she loves me and truly doesn't understand. Aurelia's father points out the obvious fact that his obese daughter will have trouble attracting men. It's an unfortunate fact. On the whole the movie is more seamlessly PC than overt movies on PC-ness.
