Review Few directors can pull off a feature film at the age of 20, but Fat Girls auteur Ash Christian comes to the job with dozens of hours of experience under his belt as a film and television actor. After paying his dues in shows like Six Feet Under and movies such as Domino, Christian has written a strong starring role for himself in Fat Girls, a gay hybrid of early John Hughes movies and the American Pie series. Unfortunately, he hasn't put as much thought or care into any of the characters surrounding him. Unlike the movies which influenced Fat Girls (including the works of John Waters), Christian fails to populate his movie with supporting players that are more than one-dimensional stereotypes...Fat Girls is at its best when it portrays Rodney's small moments of self-realization, the scenes in which he comes to terms with who he is and what he wants out of life...No one in this movie seems to have any purpose other than to define Rodney by his relationship to them, and as a result, Fat Girls comes across as more cartoonish than it intends to be. For the film's target audience, the truthfulness of Christian's performance might be enough to recommend the picture, but compared to a fully realized comic universe like that in Eating Out 2, the world of Fat Girls suffers from the cinematic equivalent of anorexia.

Lou Lumenick, New York Post Big-Hearted and often quite funny...cleverly subverts the cliches of high school comedies to serve an autobiographical story...
