Great lessons in this movie. Just goes to show that there are consequences to every action, lying to save your own arse doesn't get you anywhere in the end and revenge is never, ever sweet. Plus gluttony isn't exactly a good idea either. Unfortunately I've never read the book on this one so I can't say if the movie has done it justice but then they rarely do. The acting could've been a bit better ... read more

Let The Curse Fit The Crime.

Another great take on a Stephen king novel! this one directed by Tom Holland, about a rather large, careless man who accidently kills a gypsy with his car due to not paying attention/recieving road head. Placed on him is a curse which makes him thinner, and thinner.. and you get the idea. Before long, Billy Halleck realizes he is not sticking to his diet, yet he is still losing a remarkable amount... read more

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (1036 movies items)

" Originally based on a novel, from Richard Bachman, Stephen King’s pseudonym for when he wrote particularly nasty books and stories, and died due to “death pseudonym, a rare form of schizonomia". Robert John Burke, plays Billy Halleck, a obese lawyer, with very little ethics regarding the law, as a lawyer, who after hitting a old lady with a car, gets cursed by a Gypsy with the “world’s worst weight loss plan”. Eat all you can, but you will rapidly loss weight. and die. Critics fou"

Viimeinen elokuvapäiväkirja 2018 (402 movies items)

"29.6. (DVD) #leffahaaste2018 Elokuvan pääosa ei osaa olla luonteva läskipuvussa, mutta mustalaiskirouksen saatuaan hän onneksi alkaa laihtua. Siitä se luontevuus sitten löytyy. Haasteleffoista kirjoittaminen tuntuu typerältä ja tämä oli melko camp-henkistä Kingiä ysäriltä. Loppuratkaisu piirakan kera tuntui tutulta. Olenko tulossa hulluksi vai olenko nähnyt tämän aiemmin?"

Lessons To Be Learned From Horror Films (543 movies items)

"Things come with a cost. Go ahead, eat like there's no tomorrow. Because, there may not be a tomorrow. Especially, if you get cursed with rapid weight loss. Let the punishment, fit the crime. The overweight lawyer in this film, found that out the hard way. Literally."
