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

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?
| Original Score: 1/4

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.

Hilarious parody of contemporary indie cinema.

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

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.

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

Lame spoof of a plethora of '90s indie films, directed in ham-fisted fashion by Philip Zlotorynski.

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