Dumplin' Movie Review

 .........................................................................................................

I read Dumplin' in June of 2018, and honestly I just liked Millie and Bo, so I was interested to see those two. 

The main plot seemed to movie just a little too fast, I wanted there to be more of the girls getting ready and encouraging one another more.

I felt like Willowdean was just plain rude to Millie in some the scenes, especially how she said at the beginning, about how at least she wasn't clueless like Millie, who apparently didn't know she was fat. She judges others and then tells people to not judge her for being fat, it's kind of a double standard. She judges other girls for being skinny, when that is their choice, not all girls that are skinny are rude and they don't deserved to body shamed, that goes for all of the girls in this book.

Ellen and Willowdean's falling out only lasted a day, which if I remember correctly, it was a little longer in the book then just a day. Another reason they had that big argument was because Ellen and Callie had been hanging out more. Ellen had told secrets to Callie before she even told Willowdean.  

As much as I enjoyed the movie, I was really disappointed at the lack of Bo and Willowdean together as a couple in the movie. In the book, they were together a lot more then just every few chapters/scenes.

Overall, it was a disappointing movie, fun but it didn't do a very good job as handling the serious conversations and situations.
