    A gut wrenching, Oscar winning performance by Brendan Fraser.

    Never expected to see Brendan Fraser in this type of role. Cast really able to invest you into their character. Satisfying ending.

    A brave Brendan Fraser performance surrounded by a host of one-dimensional side characters and hackneyed melodrama due to a screenplay that wreaks of bad t.v.

    I really liked this movie and found it very moving. I don't understand why so many people think it's fat phobic or exploits the obesity of the main character. Charlie, as portrayed by Brendan Fraser, is a real person. He is fully human with flaws and virtues. When his life partner died, he spiraled and became morbidly obese. He's not "greedy" he has a problem. Charlie is intelligent and compassionate, he has a great sense of humor and can spot BS a mile away. I hope Fraser get a the Oscar- he deserves it.
