4 stars

A somber yet heartwarming drama of an overweight high-school freshman and his tribulations. Over run by animosity for his weight, the obese freshman sheds the pounds to capture the admiration of the girl he loves and his school peers. A simple yet effective triumph story.

I was expecting a movie more like Angus but I was really suprised that it was nothing like it at all.The Fat Boy Chronicles had extreme bullying, suicide, murder, etc, etc, etc.It was a good movie but at times it was brutal & hard to watch so if you're expecting a feel good comedy like I was, Forget about it!
