Chubby Funny review

The film has its flaws - some of the scenes feel like heavily signposted sketches, and the story arc is a little too straightforward - but it's enjoyable and good-hearted, with many excellent performances, and certainly a decent calling card for Harry Michell. It might even help him break out of the 'chubby funny' stereotype himself.

Chubby Funny review

Written, directed by and starring talented upstart Michell, Chubby Funny is an accomplished and reflective essay on millennial disillusionment.
