Synopsis
A comedic look at Hollywood stereotypes as told through the story of a full-figured actress, who, fed up with losing parts to thinner rivals, levels the playing field with revenge on-the-brain, and a little ingenuity. Apparently the story is based on a real incident involving Kathy Bates who was shut out of a role (originally written for her) she had played on stage in 'Frankie and Johnny,' when Hollywood made a movie version. Michelle Pfeiffer was cast and all references to the character's size were dropped from the script.
