Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

Under 30 and over 300 pounds, Neil (Famiglietti) is a likable schlub from Brooklyn who decides to get serious about losing weight after ruining his sister’s wedding. (Don’t ask.) Spending a year in a dilapidated trailer in upstate New York, Neil not only sheds the titular bulk but takes a personal journey toward self-acceptance. It sounds like The Biggest Loser: The Movie, so kudos to Matthew Bonifacio for crafting an inspirational, humorous portrait of an individual grappling with an addiction that, unlike heroin or alcohol, has rarely been addressed in film.—Andrew Grant
