MONDAY MOVIE MEME
Molly looked around for a weekly meme about movies and did not have any luck. So therefore she decided to start her own! Andy will play along as well - hopefully you will too. Go to your blog and create your own post on the topic, linking back to us in your post, then come back and leave a link to your post here in our Comments section.

This week's movie topic is all about Weight...
While Andy was off skiing in Vermont for guys' weekend, I attended our niece's 1st birthday party and pigged out. There were tons of kids and presents, laughs and love. And also quite a yummy spread of food. I enjoyed it all but was quite partial to the brownies with cookies baked right in. So as I was loosening my belt waiting for Andy to find his way home, I got to thinking about movie characters battling a weight issue. Here are a few that sprung to mind. Share on your blog movies featuring those who want to lose or need to gain extra pounds, linking back here for others to see. And don't forget to visit your fellow participants!
- Dreamgirls (2006) - Before Jennifer Hudson found her new figure in real life, she played the bold, bodacious and gifted Effie White whose full figure kept her talented voice from being front and center where it belonged in the musical girl group she helped to found.
- The Nutty Professor (1996) - Professor Sherman Klump's obsession with weight loss leads to a whole mess of entertaining chaos thanks to Eddie Murphy's talents.
- Shallow Hal (2001) - Jack Black's character Hal gets hypnotized to see only inner beauty and therefore experiences the joy of true love with obese Rosemary while the rest of his world can't understand why he's not still shallow.
