Editorial Reviews

A film that touched the hearts of a generation and one of the most important movies of the decade… ...sounds really boring! If you want laughs, MY BIG FAT INDEPENDENT MOVIE takes a comedic hammer to indie film faves like SWINGERS, MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING, PULP FICTION, MEMENTO, and loads more! This hilariously smart satire tells the story of Johnny Vince, a swingin’ hepcat who meets hitmen Sam and Harvey on a road trip to pull a "botched robbery" in Las Vegas. Along the way they take a deeply unfulfilled not- sogood- girl hostage (Huff's Paget Brewster), encounter the mysterious Mechanic (Clint Howard), get harassed by a foulmouthed answering machine (Jason Mewes)... and did we mention the lesbians? The result, hilarity ensues! SCARY MOVIE spoofed horror, AIRPLANE did it to disaster flicks, NOT ANOTHER TEEN MOVIE mocked uh, teen movies… now it’s time for Independents to get theirs in this hilarious spoof that takes the highbrow world of independent film to an all-new low

Customer Reviews

This movie is one of the better spoofs that have been created to date.
Kris Perry
It combines smart parodies of many independent films with the standard potty-humor of modern spoofs, and it blends the styles pretty well.
Dave Knox
If you find yourself scratching your head too often, that just means you've got some good movies to catch up on.

This movie is worth picking up. Its just one of those funny movies, if your the type that has to have meat to the movie, then its not for you. However a little funny meaningless movie is good every once in awhile.

It is definitely abundant with the cool. I was at Best Buy today and they just got a new shipment in. The box has a bookflap with a velcro seasl that opens to show the some of the cooler shots including a Mewes picture with a thought bubble about how he likes fatties (typical Jay).

The special features are endless. This DVD set includes 2 discs: DISC ONE= a UNRATED version of the movie with 3 audio commentary tracks and a text commentary track that you can watch with the movie as it gives you funny insights into the making of the film and educates you on independent film trivia. DISC TWO= more special features! You get 10 behind-the-scenes featurettes, lots of outtakes, deleted scenes with optional commentary, over a dozen hidden easter eggs, hundreds of photos from the production, and the shooting script for your PC. But the best part of this DVD is the bonus short film WALKENTALK.

This movie is the only film of its kind, spoofing independent films with the same fervor as Scary Movie or Not Another Teen Movie, but with one major difference-- this movie is spoofing films that are highly regarded (maybe unfairly so) as untouchable works of art. It's job is to remind indie films and the fans who love them that they are not above lambasting. This movie has guts, and it does what most independent comedies fail to do-- it generates laughs.

No kidding, I liked the movie when I saw it in theaters, but this DVD is the best I've bought in a year. This DVD set includes 2 discs: DISC ONE= a raunchier UNRATED version of the movie with 3 audio commentary tracks and a text commentary track that you can watch with the movie as it gives you funny insights into the making of the film and educates you on independent film trivia. DISC TWO= more special features than you can shake a stick at! You get 10 behind-the-scenes featurettes, lots of outtakes, deleted scenes with optional commentary, over a dozen hilarious hidden (but easily found) easter eggs, hundreds of photos from the production, and the shooting script for your PC. But the best part of this DVD is the bonus short film WALKENTALK, which I saw at the AFI Fest in 2003 and thought I'd never find. If you like Christopher Walken, this short alone is worth the price of the DVD!

Philip Zlotorynski and his film, My Big Fat Independent Movie accomplished the humor and wit that the Scary Movie trilogy attempted and failed. This movie is one of the better spoofs that have been created to date. Zlotorynski's knowledge of the indie genre is apparent in this film's plot, which spoofs a variety of the biggest films in the indie genre.

The main storyline is a mixed up version of Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. Though we first are introduced to the film's protagonists in a spoof of the naming sequence of Reservoir Dogs, the resemblance of Harvey and Mr. Fuchsia to Pulp Fiction's John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson is unmistakable. The plot of the two films becomes even more intertwined when the audience is told that they are on a journey to an empty warehouse for a robbery (they are supposed to steal a suitcase). Zlotorynski even included the famous cutting of the police officer's ear scene from Reservoir Dogs. As a huge Tarantino fan, I was impressed with the director and author's brilliant portrayal of these two favorites.

Though Tarantino's works are some of the best in the indie genre, My Big Fat Independent Movie would not have been as good without the intrusion of Memento into the plot. Leonard Shelby was the perfect choice for an antagonist and possible foil to the robbery plans of Harvey and his cohorts. Staying true to the plot of Memento, Leonard's character still has little memory and recollection of his past, and is still in search of revenge through his tattoos and photographs. However, this time he believes that Harvey is involved in the murder of his wife. I loved the part in which Johnny has the same pictures as Leonard because they came with his wallet.

The most surprising thing about My Big Fat Independent Movie is that no one had made it sooner. Crammed full of every cliché it can lay it's hands on, and openly disparaging of every independent movie made from Pulp Fiction to Run Lola Run its crude, disgusting, full of sexual innuendo, stupid dialogue, foul language and is hysterically funny from beginning to end.

Oh sure it's as subtle as a brick wall and as intellectually challenging as professional wrestling, but that's half the fun. Billing itself as the lowbrow comedy for the highbrow crowd, it makes no pretensions to being anything more than a brilliantly stupid movie. High art this isn't and thank goodness for that.

Like a scythe in a cheap horror movie it cuts everything down in size so no ones a head and shoulders above anyone. All your favourites are seen minus their aspirations to art hood. Oh sure some of the jokes are more stupid than funny, but that's to be expected when you're shooting target practice with a grenade launcher. You'll blow everything up, but stuff is bound to be a little messy around the edges.

In case you were wondering, there is a plot to this movie, mainly useful for bringing in the stunning variety of clichés and allusions to other movies that pepper the film, but it does provide a semblance of structure for the fun. Two thugs Sam (Neil Barton) and Harvey (Eric Hoffman) are sent to Las Vegas by their employer to botch a robbery of a suitcase.

On their way, they are supposed to pick up a guy with a guitar case full of weapons. Unfortunately, he has a tragic encounter with a semi-trailer while engaged in conversation with a French girl, Anomalie (Ashley Head) who just wants to make everyone happy.
