Insatiable made me Hungry for more

Blood, revenge, and carnage in a tiara and red ball gown. 

Patty Bladel (Debbie Ryan) is your average self involved seventeen-year-old facing the consequences of an eating disorder and often misfortune, all while serving humor on a silver platter of second-hand embarrassment and life lessons. 

Patty had always been fat, that is until she is struck in the jaw and kept on a liquid diet, thus leading to her dramatic weight loss. 

On the way to a court case, she meets unlikely father figure Bob Armstrong (Dallas Roberts), a once hotshot lawyer obsessed with beauty pageants. He is allegedly rumored to have touched one of his pageant girls, thus losing his respect as a pageant coach and lawyer, until he meets chaotic beauty queen Patty Bladel.

Insatiable had me clutching my stomach in fits of laughter and reaching for my box of tissues all in one swift scene. Patty Bladel is a girl every teenager can relate to, from her quirky personality to her heart that constantly remains on her sleeve. 

However, I won’t lie and say that Insatiable was flawless. At times I felt as if I were on a roller coaster and not eating potato chips on my couch and watching a television show. The drama was almost too much, as sometimes it was hard to watch; however, I can appreciate that Insatiable viewed real life and it’s non-stop confrontation.

They couldn’t have picked a better actress to play Patty Bladel than old Disney star Debbie Ryan. Debbie Ryan added a twisted decadence to Patty, from the mischievous grin of sinister intentions to the pretty Miss Georgia smile. Ryan’s performance was more than outstanding, it was mind-blowing — as if Debbie Ryan was created for the role.

Insatiable was beautifully made, from its satirical lens dripping from every scene to the fuzzy scenes that captured the audience’s heart like a Polaroid picture. Again, I won’t lie that Insatiable didn’t have its flaws; however, in time, I began to embrace and adore them.
