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.
This is one of the few spoof movies that you really don't get the jokes unless you've seen the movies they're making fun of. Essentials to see before this movie are Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Memento, Amelie, and Swingers. Some movies like Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels and Run Lola Run are important too for the occasional joke. But if you're familiar with these movies, this is hilarious.
It might have looked good on paper, but despite a few early chuckles, the whole thing gets tired after 20 minutes.
