“A pleasing indie romantic comedy... unpretentiously well-turned” – Variety
“Full of charm and spirit. Fans of such films as “Knocked Up” or “40 Year Old Virgin” would feel right at home with this story, but at the same time there is a subtlety and self respect which comedies of that style often lack.” – Rogue Cinema
"When a romantic comedy comes along, makes you smile ear to ear, and truly allows you to fall in love with each and every character you meet, it is an absolute revelation. That’s exactly what Ryan Sage’s new film, Worth The Weight is." – Criterioncast

From a script bought off Craigslist for $500, comes a truly unique romantic comedy. Sam was a former college football star whose chance to play in the NFL abruptly ended with a blown out knee. Seven years later, he finds himself alone, working a minimum wage job and weighing a hefty 413lbs. Enter Cassie, a personal trainer who not only helps Sam lose weight, but find love as well. Steering clear of the standard transformation formulas, Sam finds acceptance - and love - in unexpected places.
