Maybe if this movie was called "Fat" it would still be in print. Kids could buy it for a dollar in a Walmart bargain bin, and watch it on dates, and laugh at the terrible awkwardness, making their own seem inconsequential...
Subtle and bleak in a very real way, but hardly more interesting than actually people-watching at a bar.
