Some commenters of this movie obviously have no idea what the message of this movie is about =_= It's not saying that fat people SHOULD be bullied for their weight, its saying that fat people DO get bullied for their weight. This movie is a glimpse into the life of a fat boy who experiences fatphobic bullying like many fat people and fights through it and achieves his goals and learns to love himself.

worst film ever. it says u must be lonely, useless & bullied by everyone incl your own family if you are FAT. pathetic & patronising & frankly vile. felt like i needed a shower after watching all the anti-fat bull. is america REALLY this vile to its own?
