Dumplin' Movie Trailer

Jennifer Aniston Is an Overbearing Pageant Mom in the Hilarious Trailer For Dumplin'

It's not often that Jennifer Aniston takes on a role that makes us kind of hate her a little bit, but Dumplin' seems to be her chance to change that.

The Office Christmas Party actress stars in the upcoming Netflix dramedy, based on the New York Times bestselling book by Julie Murphy, which follows an outspoken, curvy teenager named Willowdean (Danielle Macdonald) as she navigates life under the rule of her overbearing pageant queen mother (Aniston) in small town Texas. In an act of protest against her mother's neverending stream of pageants and disapproval, Will decides to enter her mother's local Miss Teen Blue Bonnet competition, which in turn encourages other contestants in town to do the same. (Macdonald's comedic timing as she delivers lines like "I'm not the Joan of Arc of fat girls," already has us hooked.)

Watch the hilarious trailer above before Dumplin' hits Netflix and select theatres on Dec. 7.
