The Baster - a film about a woman being artificially inseminated, starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman - was never going to be a highbrow affair, but we didn't think it could stoop to ridiculing the obese and pustule ridden.

- A woman with a round face, small eyes, and upturned nose who is comfortable having profanities shouted out at her in a comedic scene
- A rail thin teen boy with bad skin, bad acne (who, we're guessing, will also need to be comfortable at having expletives screamed at him)
