"Muffin Top: A Love Story" is the story of Suzanne (Cathryn Michon) a Women's Studies Pop Culture professor at Malibu University, who studies images of women in the media for a living, and yet is made insecure by the constant parade of female perfection that is our airbrushed culture. She has been going through IVF treatments to get pregnant by her network executive husband (Diedrich Bader), but discovers on her birthday, that her husband has knocked up his younger, skinnier, co-worker (Haylie Duff) and wants a divorce. Happy Birthday! She goes on to find a more authentic version of who she really is, despite the delights of being suddenly single in Los Angeles, where low self-esteem for women is their number one export to the world.Written by
I bought this on iTunes and loved every minute of it. In the 80s (or was it the 90s) I had Shirley Valentine as my "feel good to be a normal/average woman movie." Now I have Muffin Top. Cathryn Michon did a great job as the director/writer/star. Loved seeing the late, great Marcia Wallace. Dot Marie Jones was hysterical. The talented Marissa Jaret Winokur also rocked. David Arquette and Diedrich Bader played their guy roles perfectly -- Diedrich you are so horrible. I know I've forgotten some others but everyone did a goo -- oh oh Maria Bamford was fun too. I don't like to use the words "chick flick" but let's be honest women will understand it and relate to it more than those beings brimming with testosterone.
