There, she reinvents herself and grabs her home town's attention when she becomes engaged to a handsome and popular sports hero...

Most of the action is played for broad laughs, and Hogan demonstrates the ability to generate them, even if the humor is base and often cruel, making fun of people's looks and ineptitude.

An engaging, funny and sometimes surprisingly tough romantic comedy.

A gleeful, gaudy tribute to one ungainly misfit and her determination.

The film's good heart keeps it from ever making fun of Muriel, although there are moments that must have been tempting.

There's a high enough feelgood factor here to compensate for the detours off the comedy highway.
