Secondary Character Saturday /Sunday: Fat Amy (Pitch Perfect)

Fat Amy 1

WHO: Fat Amy

FROM: Pitch Perfect

BY: Screenplay —  Kay Cannon, from the book by — Mickey Rapkin


PROS: Confident, FUNNY, kind, smart, excellent singer who can read music and match pitch. She can wrestle crocodiles and dingos simultaneously and she always speaks her mind.

Fat Amy 3

CONS: She’s a bit PG 13 and base. At first she comes off as obnoxious, but as you get to know her she’s a gem.

BEST SHINING MOMENT: Admitting that her real name is Fat Patricia, but she didn’t like that so she changed it to Fat Amy. It wasn’t that she didn’t like her body image, she didn’t like that people were making fun of her body image, so she turned the tables on them and changed  her name.

WHY I CHOOSE Fat Amy: Fat Amy is a pretty upbeat person. She takes what life gives her and celebrates it.  Thumbs up to Rebel Wilson for her no holds bar portrayal of Fat Amy in the film.

QUOTES: “It fuels my hate fire.”
