I really thoroughly enjoy this film. It did made me cry. It emphasizes the relationship and the dynamics of the family. A teenager, her adult sister and her mom with a dash of hidden issues ie globalisation of market, feminist issues and the traditionalist view of family.
Well worth watching - you don't get many positive Hispanic film especially with bits of hidden agenda cunningly placed without overemphasizing it.
Brilliant.

My sister had been going on and on about this little known film called Real Women Have Curves, how great it was and how much she loved it and identified with it. I eventually decided to watch it one evening when nothing better was on and oh my word was she right!!! This film is gritty and smart and true to life. I alternately laughed and cried and as soon as it was over i got on the phone to my sister. It has a real uplifting feel good thread to it and i would recommend it to anyone.

What a marvellous film! I really enjoyed watching this film. I found it refreshing to see a film like this where the main heroine was Hispanic, intelligent, self-assured and definitely curvy far removed from the stick-thin American teenage actresses who grace our screens from time to time.America Ferrara who plays Ana gives a wonderful performance and there are excellent performances from the cast all round. I think the underlying message of this film is being true to yourself and not being frightened to overcome your circumstances in life to live life to the full. I liked the way Ana stood up for herself and to her mother and family and embraced the American Dream by going to Columbia University in the end especially as her family were sceptical about having such high aspirations.I highly recommend this film to anyone to see especially any teenage girls suffering from low self-esteem. Watch Ana and embrace the woman that you are!

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Amazon Customer HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on 12 July 2005
Format: DVD
The surprise in "Real Women Have Curves" is not that Ana Garcia (American Ferrera) is able to get into a first rate college, given that she is the daughter of a poor Latino family in East L.A., because we buy that she is smart enough. But given her family, it is rather surprising that she dares to dream the dream. Certainly it is nothing that was every discussed around the dinner table in the Garcia family. Her father, Raúl (Jorge Cervera, Jr.) is a gardener and her mother, Carmen (Lupe Ontiveros) makes dresses at the sweatshop run by Ana's sister, Estela (Ingrid Oliu). Her mother dismisses out of hand the idea that Ana can go to college and insists she come to work at the dress shop. Although Ana's teacher, Mr. Guzman (George Lopez), continues to encourage her it is not until Ana endures working in the sweatshop for a while that she becomes desperate enough to sit down and write that college application essay.
While the story of this 2002 film begins with a young girl graduating high school and ends with her on her way to college, as the title of "Real Women Have Curves" should indicate, this is really about notions of self-worth and body image. Estela's shop makes dresses that are sold for ten times what they are paid on consignment from a big company that is exploiting their cheap labor. Despite her overbearing mother, Ana has enough brains to know exploitation of the workers when she sees it and enough self-confidence to challenge the way of the world for all the good that might do anybody. But then another idea becomes more important as Ana gets her co-workers to wonder why big women (the size of say, cows, hippos, elephants and orcas) should not get to wear beautiful dresses cut to their own figures.

Format: DVD
REAL WOMEN HAVE CURVES continues the recent spate of cute generation gap films that began with MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING, then continued with MONSOON WEDDING, BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM, and WHALE RIDER. In all cases, we are presented with a female protagonist endeavoring to break traditional cultural bonds being imposed by an older generation - father, mother, or grandparent.
In REAL WOMEN HAVE CURVES, Ana (America Ferrera) has just graduated from a Beverly Hills high school, to which she buses every day from her family's home in east central Los Angeles. Not only is Ana a gifted student, but she's won a scholarship to Columbia University. However, her Latino parents, and especially her mother Carmen (Lupe Ontiveros), expect her not to abandon the nest, but rather work in her older sister Estela's (Ingrid Oliu) small clothing factory that creates fancy dresses for high-end retailers. Because Estela chronically operates short of employees and money and perilously close to production deadlines, her establishment is a figurative and literal sweatshop, especially since the fans can't be turned on as they would blow dirt onto the finished goods. Needless to say, Ana loathes working for her sister.
Ana is also overweight. It doesn't help her self-image that Mom, who fears for her younger daughter's marriage prospects, habitually addresses Ana as "Fatty". The two have a tense relationship.
Because the creators of this film apparently endeavored to keep the storyline true to life, it also perhaps lacks entertainment value in comparison to the other movies mentioned. The finale of MONSOON WEDDING dazzled the viewer with a vibrantly colorful and joyous Indian marriage ceremony. BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM had a sports theme and included the Big Game.
