Synopsis[edit]

Jennie Cragg (Rebel Wilson) is an obese girl who lives in Boonelg with her extremely overweight mother Berenice, who is now confined to her living-room chair. Her Aunty Cassandra’s gay husband has left her. Nick is the extremely good-looking neighbour, and Jennie's best friends are hypochondriac Nigella and the extremely religious Amy Lee. Jennie enters a dance competition to pay for her mum’s stomach stapling operation, attempts to impress the boy she has a crush on and get revenge on the school skanks. Most of the furniture/house items and clothing were bought from charity shops. And food is bought from Aldi. [2]
