Synopsis: What do you do when you meet the love of your life and shes more than you ever imagined - about seventy-five pounds more? In Neil LaBute's comedy of manners, Fat Pig, Tom (Jeremy Piven) is falling for Helen (Ashlie Atkinson) a bright, sexy woman who happens to be "generously proportioned." She challenges his mind and makes him laugh. Trouble is, his friends are laughing too. Forced to defend his new relationship and bear the brunt of insults from Jeannie (Keri Russell) and Carter (Andrew McCarthy), Tom must come to terms with his own preconceptions of conventional good looks. In the age of no carbs, nip tucks and extreme makeovers, will Tom destroy his chance for true happiness?
