Lou (Lou Pizarro) is a successful lawyer in Los Angeles - but he's also so obese that he can't even climb a flight of stairs without getting out of breath or sitting down without breaking the chair beneath him. So his boss Mr. Peters (Eric Roberts) pairs him with smart-looking Andy (Johnny Rey Diaz) for their next high profile case, despite the fact that Andy doesn't know shit about law. And when they narrowly win what should have been an open-and-shut case would Lou have conducted it, Andy's made senior partner of the company instead of Lou. On top of that, Lou catches his wife (Leni Rico) in bed with another man, which sends him on a downward spiral that gets the people around him worried - so much so that his daughter sets up a profile for him on a dating site for overweight singles ...

Helena (Lucia Bloke) is a tour guide at some pyramids in Mexico who just loves to eat - all the time. Which is why her boss fires her, and her husband leaves her because of her obesity. Of course, that depresses her, so her best friend Katie sets up a profile for her on a dating site for overweight singles - and before you know it, she has found Lou as an ideal match.

Lou finds Helena nice enough to pay her a visit in Mexico, and of course, initially they fall in love over their common interest, food. Soon though they find they have more in common, and eventually they start a business tailored to the needs of overweight tourists that's soon thriving. However, eventually Helena starts to doubt Lou's feelings for her are real and that he hasn't just taken her because in his obese state he couldn't find anything better. So to prove his love to her, Lou starts to lose weight.

So things couldn't be better - only that  both Lou's wife and Mr. Peters want him back in LA, and they have a devious plan to get him back ...


What's really cool about this in all rather sweet romantic comedy is that it totally defies today's obsession with slenderness and gives overweight people a shot at winning while at the same time keeping fat jokes to a minimum, and - despite many exaggerations - lets its story develop in a rather natural manner, with relatable characters and situations. And likeable leads really get you invested in the movie, while a colourful and eccentric supporting cast see that there's hardly ever a dull moment.
