Have you seen Real Women Have Curves|http://imdb.com/title/tt0296166/?
We watched it last night courtsey of Netflicks. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The Mexican music and flair was entertaining, the story heartwarming and the dialogue sharp and witty. America Ferrara did a splendid job portraying a not-so-stick-thin gal struggling to find balance between family obligations and personal ambition.
I think you should see it. Be warned, however, that you will see underwear.
