Storyline

Fat Slags charts the rise and fall of our eponymous heroines. The unrepentantly vulgar and crass Sandra and Tracey leave their North-of-England hometown of Fulchester for the bright lights of London to shag and booze their way to fame and fortune. The same day they arrive, internationally-renowned billionaire Sean Cooley suffers a blow to the head. He spots them of a popular daytime chat-show and falls in love with their larger-than-life look and approach. Determined to make them stars, he forces fashion designer Fidor Konstantin to base his next collection around them and creates a media sensation. Sandra and Tracey take the UK by storm, hitting #1 in the record charts and inadvertently winning the Turner Prize. As far as the press is concerned, fat is the new black - Throughout their journey into the world of celebrity, the girls maintain their unique, endearing vulgarity, coupled with an innocence that draws the British public to their cause. But in private, jealousy drives a wedge... Written by Nicole Gregory

Not the real thing
26 August 2014 | by diadectes58See all my reviews

If you are expecting to see a film featuring the Viz comic strip characters Sandra Burke and Tracey Tunstall you will be disappointed. The characters in the movie are different. They have different personalities and are portrayed in a more favourable and sympathetic light. In the comic strip the girls are disgustingly loutish rude and bullying. In the movie they are more sensitive and likable. The film itself is pretty dreadful although not totally unwatchable and you can fast forward through the worst bits. The story, script, acting - everything really - are all bad. It has a few - very few - good moments. I give it two stars as there are worse films out there. Conclusion: there was only ever going to be one reason to watch this film and that was to see the Fat Slags, but, as they are not in the movie, there really is no reason to watch this film.
