Junior attorney Kimmie Boubier (Rebel Wilson) and her two best friends Helen-Alice (Liza Lapira) and Marika (Lauren Ash) have a standing Friday night date for the past 13years. Kimmie’s recent promotion throws a monkey wrench into the tradition. Her boss wants here to step up her networking and she also wants to spend more time with a sexy co-worker. She convinces her friends to change up their “Friday Night Fun Night” in order to deal with more upscale clubs.
She was quoted on ET saying, “We are the anti-Sex and the City. I mean, these girls have no fashion sense. They don’t get laid, and they eat real food,” she said about the three main characters. “When you see us walking down the street we’re not like Carrie Bradshaw. We’re like, real girls.”
Rebel understands that she is looked at as a role model because she is a plus size woman in film and on television. She commented, in an article for SFGate.com, about physical fitness, “I’m trying to get physically fit so I’ll have the stamina. I got a personal trainer. I’m not doing it to look great or whatever, but to have the energy to do all that work. People wouldn’t think it looking at me, but I can exercise!”
Rebel has definitely been making her mark with movies like Pitch Perfect and Bridesmaids. It will be great to see this Australia native on a weekly basis. Her comedy is a fresh, no holds barred type and she will do anything for a laugh.
I look forward to see her on television this fall. She is a super funny lady and an inspiration to all us curvy girls.
