skinnyfat(skin-ee-fat)

adjective

Skinnyfat describes a body typology comprised of a small frame and thin limbs with no muscle tone...just soft, shapeless flab, especially in the midsection. Example: hipsters who have stick thin arms and legs but sport a beer gut. Considered a first world phenomenon born of laziness and social privilege.

and this brings us to the story of our comic film...

Chaz, a tattooed, pierced gay San Franciscan hipster, is convinced he's overweight. The latest evidence? He caught his date feeling out his "fat waist." Yes, despite his lanky limbs and low body weight, Chaz is afflicted with the most difficult condition to treat: he's soft in the middle. He's Skinnyfat. The traumatic event sets him on a plan to lose weight until he has hipbones "sharp enough to trim hedges!" Joined by his flighty friend Davy, self-absorbed Chaz stumbles through gym workouts, crash dieting, tweaker yoga, vomiting, and even a distressing bear party! Along the way, he learns that physical ideals can change with the next pop culture trend, and even the revered six pack may not be enough to secure the most important love of all-his own.

With razor sharp humor, writer-director Andy Bydalek creates a hilarious portrait of image-obsessed gay culture and shows what can happen when body-consciousness becomes-body fixation.

In-House Review - Jan 09 2012
As a slightly overweight 20-something gay gentleman, the opening of the new short, gay comedy Skinnyfat made me cringe a little. If the two cute, slender protagonists in this flick are complaining about their weight, what does that say about my own b... Read More

Chaz is cool-he is tattooed and pierced, a hip guy in Sa Francisco. However, he considers himself to be overweight. His last date felt his waist and this drove Chaz almost mad. Chaz thinks that although he does not weigh a lot and is lanky, his waste... Read More
