Dominick DiNapoli has always been a big kid who loved eating. It was his favorite thing. Then his cousin dies from health complications due to a lack of exercise and improper diet. Antoinette, Dominick's sister, makes him promise to see a diet doctor and lose some weight. This is very hard for Dominick, but he tries. He also finds motivation when he meets Lydia, and he discovers a love that is more intense than his love of food. He spends so much time kissing and walking around with Lydia that he no longer eats as many unhealthy things, and he loses weight without even trying.Written by
I saw this film on a pay channel a long, long time ago. It seems to have vanished in the decades since. Something about it stuck in my mind - the humor, the sensitive anguish of broken self-esteem, the endless struggle with conflicting desires. I still tell stories from the movie - the support group intervention is one of the funniest things I have ever seen. Curiously, I have never met anyone else who has even heard of it. I have to admit that I didn't even remember that the lead was played by Dom Deloise, as it is a very different role than the Burt Reynolds films I know him for. I would love to see it again, so I hope they have the wisdom to release the DVD and allow me to refresh my all-too-aging memory.
