Critic Reviews for My Big Fat Independent Movie
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.
Audience Reviews for My Big Fat Independent Movie
Yeah, it's just not very good.
is it a stupid spoof..yes...is it fun in a very stupid way yes dont watch it expecting anything other then true smarts from the normal old arthouse film and just watch it to enjoy making fun of stupid arthouse films
It's "Scary Movie" for indie film fans, and just as stupid as it sounds. A feature-length parody weaving together characters and plot tangents from "Pulp Fiction," "Reservoir Dogs," "Amelie," "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," "El Mariachi," "Mulholland Drive," and many more. Much less than the sum of its parts, and not nearly as clever or hip as the screenplay seems to think it is. It does have a great opening credits sequence, and two genuine laughs. It just doesn't have anything else.
