The Fat Boy Chronicles DVD Review...

"Inspired by a true story, The Fat Boy Chronicles reveals the emotionally painful world obese teens experience in the face of a thin-obsessed society.
At age fourteen. 5'5 Jimmy weighs 187 pounds. Outside the comfort of his family and church, life for Jimmy is a constant struggle. The cruel taunts of his classmates make going to school or playing sports a humiliating experience. Yet, he still manages to focus on his goals -- to lose weight and win over the girl of his dreams."

What we thought:  The Fat Boy Chronicles is a touching and heartbreaking story that many parents and children will be able to relate to.  It is a great tool for teaching children AND adults how to treat one another(or NOT treat one another) no matter how different they may be.  This inspirational movie is full of characters that everyone can relate to.  The message is really important and this would be a great film for families to watch together.  ABCD Diaries gives The Fat Boy Chronicles an A+!
