When it comes to romantic comedies featuring plus-sized women, they are few and far between, and I'm pretty sure most of them star Queen Latifah. Body diversity is important in media and despite what I may feel about Amy Schumer part of what I did enjoy about Trainwreck was that her weight was not a factor in her bagging dudes.
