Have you seen the trailer for Pitch Perfect? It's pretty much Glee for the big screen.
I hadn't really paid much attention to it, but a quote by Rebel Wilson (who you may remember as the hilariously odd roommate in Bridesmaids) stood out to me. She plays a character called "Fat Amy." From the trailer:
Some girl: "You call yourself 'Fat Amy?'"
Rebel Wilson: "Yeah, so that tweaked bitches like you don't do it behind my back."
I hadn't planned on seeing the movie. It's not up my alley at all. I can tell it's gonna be super cheesy and just appeal to the general Glee crowd, and I never got into that phenom in the first place. But my friend Brittany told me that I'd be seeing it with her, so it appears I'm going...At least I will have an agenda in seeing it. Because this quote from the trailer is very interesting to me and the depiction of Fat Amy could really go either way. I'm interested to see how it will turn out. Much like Glee, it appears that this film is trying to portray a world which is at least closer to the diversity that actually exists.
All I know is that I like Rebel Wilson, so I will give this a fair shake and see how it turns out. I'm really hoping I'll love Fat Amy.
