Sometimes fat is better 

Now Playing is adding more Stephen King to their movie diet – starting with an adaptation of the horror scribe’s best-selling weight loss plan Thinner. Magic man Tadzu Lempke can help you melt away excess pounds without exercise or fasting, thanks to one of his custom gypsy curses. Can an obese lawyer eat a slice of humble pie, atone for running over Tadzu’s mother, and get his hex lifted before he wastes away to a skeleton? And is this production plagued by the same bad taste that’s caused so many other King works to belly flop on screen? Listen and find out!
