7. To Be Fat Like Me
Original Air Date: January 8, 2007
Director: Douglas Barr
Stars: Kaley Cuoco, Caroline Rhea, Melissa Halstrom,
Lesson Learned: It ain't easy being big.
In the event this flick didn't win a spot on the list for the title alone, Kaley Cuoco in a fat suit pretty much makes it a shoo-in. (See the above photo.)
In a predictable weight-centric reinterpretation of Black Like Me, popular athlete Aly (Cuoco) dons a fat suit—and appears to age about 30 years—to go undercover for a documentary setting out to prove that personality can overcome the physical, and that larger people really don't have it so bad. But don't think this is just for fun: Girlfriend's out to win some contest prize money since her mother's (Caroline Rhea) binge eating resulted in hospital bills that cleaned out her college fund. Damn.
