The third of the three movies I watched on Wednesday, and, surprisingly, it was the best one.
Jillian Bell is Brittany, an overweight blonde who is known as “the funny one” in her circle of friends & co-workers. She’s told by her doctor that she needs to make lifestyle changes & lose weight.
She struggles with diet, getting sober, and exercising, making new friends and losing others along the way.
Her ultimate goal? To run the New York City Marathon.
Setbacks, injuries, relocation…all of ’em get in the way of her goal.
Based on the true story, this movie was especially moving, and I’m secure enough to admit that there was a lot of dust in that theater. And someone must have been chopping onions by the end of it.
