The film follows Jillian Bell as Brittany, who is overweight and needing to work on some of her issues. She comes into the life of several people who help her gain self-confidence as she embarks to run the New York Marathon. It is billed as a comedy and it is fun in places. It gets a bit uncomfortable as Brittany discovers who she really is and what she needs to do to become something more. The film is touching, frustrating, and funny. The film had a limited release in theaters and was released wide by Amazon Studio on it’s streaming platform. It was well received by critics.
The Beer Lover’s Guide To The Movies pairs this movie with Michelob Ultra. This beer is an American Light Lager with an ABV of 4.2%. The beer is yellow in color, has a corn aroma, and kind of neutral on the palette and is a bit watery. It is crisp, dry, and refreshing. This beer is only 95 calories for 12 ounce serving. This film is about transformation, it does pull you into Brittany’s journey, and you want to identify with her struggles, so drinking anything else will make you feel disconnected from the film.
