Movie Info

All those movies the snotty clerk at the video store keeps telling you to rent get raked over the coals in this over-the-top satiric comedy. Harvey (Eric Hoffman) and Sam (Neil Barton) are a pair of identically black-suited hitmen who have been assigned to take part in a conceptually disastrous robbery in Las Vegas. Harvey and Sam are supposed to pick the other members of their crew en route; however, by accident they end up with Johnny Vince (Darren Keefe), a would-be jazz musician with chronic

This low-budget effort lacks the wit necessary to sustain its brief 80-minute running time.

My Big Fat Independent Movie is a frenetic attempt to spoof every major art-house film of the last decade.

This painfully unfunny spoof promises to do for independent movies what Airplane! did for disaster movies, but mostly what My Big Fat Independent Movie does is demonstrate the ineptitude of its makers.

It's a sour, petty act of mockery that values its own ineptitude over genuine cleverness, travestying Quentin Tarantino and others simply for dreaming up gimmicks that worked.

If you've seen all the above films, this will all sound just as silly as it is. If you haven't, it will just sound cuckoo.

Not every joke connects, but Gore and director Philip Zlotorynski make sure that five more are waiting around the corner.

The juvenile gags seem aimed at moviegoers who hate the whole idea of independent/art/foreign-language films and the stuck-up eggheads who like them -- so what's the point?

Hilarious parody of contemporary indie cinema.

Clever at times, hilarious on occasion, but doesn't quite make it into the spoof hall of fame.

Every time the movie seems about to drown in its own blatancy and semicompetence, Gore and company come up with a winning gambit.

Too many corners cut, not enough quality control, and a screenplay that simply wasn't ready for camera.
