Fatso (2008)





Movie Info

Not to be confused with the 1980 Anne Bancroft-Dom DeLuise farce of the same name, this raunchy Finnish sex comedy stars Nils Jorgen Kaalstad as Rino Hanssen, a virginal, agoraphobic porn addict who still lives with his father at age 30 - and whose only friend is a hateful, asthmatic loser named Filip (Kyrre Hellum). Circumstances change somewhat when Rino's dad opts to rent one of the rooms in his apartment to a beautiful, free-spirited young girl named Malin - so free-spirited, in fact, that she finds meaning through constant sex and wild living. One step at a time, Rino finds himself drawn out of his shell and into a world he has long sought to avoid; fears of failure and rejection linger, however, making this transition an extremely challenging and frightening one for Rino. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Fatso


What the hell was this? This was one of the weirdest most awkward movies I think I have ever seen. Even the day after I can't seem to grasp what happened. I don't know if it was the characters, the story, the sketches, or a combination of all that made this movie hard to watch. The terrible voice overs made it very annoying because the timing was way off and the voices didn't seem to match the people. I did however expect that would be the case seeing this isn't an American movie or one that speaks English all together. I really wished I didn't see this movie after I saw how raunchy it was which I certainly wasn't expecting. The ending seemed fitting as it was the strangest ending to a movie I think I've ever seen. It left me confused, disgusted, and grateful that the movie was over.
