“Hairspray” star Nikki Blonsky stars in “Queen Sized”

Psssst! Come in closer because I’ve gotta big secret I’m just dying to share with you today. It will probably make me the laughingstock of the entire male population, but I can’t hold it in any longer. This is something I have been meaning to talk about for quite a few years and now I’m ready to reveal it at last to the entire world right here right now at my blog. What is it? (GULP!) I’m a HUGE fan of the movies on the cable network channel Lifetime.

Yep, you can call me a head-over-heels, super-excited metrosexual man because I absolutely adore the quality of the content found among the Lifetime network films. I think they do an amazing job bringing greater awareness to important societal issues that primarily concern women, but also have real application in the lives of men, too. Such is the case with one of the latest movies on Lifetime released in 2008 that my wife Christine and I watched on our date night last Friday night called “Queen Sized.”

Starring Nikki Blonsky, whose breakout role came when she was cast in the lead role of the movie version of the Broadway musical “Hairspray” starring John Travolta (in drag, no less!), Queen Latifah (who she calls “my sister”) and Michelle Pfeiffer, and veteran actress Annie Potts (best known for her role on the television show “Designing Women” opposite Delta Burke), “Queen Sized” centers around the character of Maggie Baker (Blonsky) who is an overweight high school senior just trying to survive until graduation (sound familiar anyone?). In the midst of dealing with the agony of not being like everyone else at school and simply trying to be invisible, some of the “pretty” girls decide to nominate Maggie to be homecoming queen as a joke.
