Fed up with dieting, four overweight friends decide to start a sumo wrestling club in this genial situation comedy. Part sports drama, part love story, this sweetly absurd tale of forlorn blue-collar guys pursuing a difficult goal and in the process learning to accept themselves, recalls audience-pleasers such as The Full Monty.
