The Couchpotatoes » A movie about a fat girl having a dream becoming a cheerleader, that's not immediately the thing I had in mind while thinking about a good movie. Not really the thing I would go for normally. But if I have to be honest I was pleasantly surprised by Don't Talk To Irene. It's a movie with a lot of funny moments, aspecially the talk. Irene, played by Michelle McLeod, is fat and not goodlooking, she talks to a poster of Geena Davis as her motivational speaker. What follows is a girl that doesn't get and doesn't mind being bullied, she just wants to achieve her dream, and she will do whatever it takes. It's a nice story about people that are a bit outcasted, but that don't really mind, and do whatever they like to do. There are enough funny moments to make it a good comedy. Much better than I expected it to be.
