Sassy, plus-sized comedienne Mo'Nique stars as Jazmin, a salesclerk at a store catering to the snooty skinny with designs on creating her own plus-sized fashion line. Her self-esteem a little battered, Jazmin and her equally-fleshy best friend Stacey (Johnson) are happy to indulge themselves at a Palm Springs resort, especially when they meet a couple of buff Nigerian doctors (Jean-Louis and Godfrey) who happen to like their ladies with some extra curves. Thus inspired, Jazmin decides to pursue her fashion dream. 99m/C DVD . US Mo'Nique, Jimmy Jean-Louis, Godfrey, Jack Noseworthy, Kendra C.
