Editorial Reviews

Paul (Josiah Lipscomb), Ashley (Maggie Talbot Minkin) and Billy (Sean Carlin) are best buds growing up in suburban New Orleans (Fat City) 1979. It's their senior year and all they care about is turning 18... the legal age to drink. Smoking pot is a way of being and dodging cops, girlfriends and yes, parents, make way for a hilarious trip to the disco era where booze and girls are all that matter in this coming-of-age comedy.

Read the book and bought the movie...basically its "That 70s Show" goes to New Orleans. The opening scene is a montage of the French Quarter, Bourbon Street and the Garden District along St.Charles. Unlike the book, which is more detailed, the hunting scene is reduced to a single double entendre about Paul's teenage appetite for girls. We quickly meet his soon-to-be "try anything" teenage girlfriend Ashley at Kaleb's, a bar in Fat City (suburb of New Orleans) with her two other girlfriends Sally and Stephanie. After sharing a quaalude, they leave the bar for the lakefront...only to be caught by the cops in the backseat of their dad's 1970's Cadillac convertible. The cop has a strong southern accent and despite some harsh actions (no spoiler) ends up letting them go despite having him pour out the Dixie beers from the ice chest in the back seat...this kind of gives you an idea of the 70s mind set for teenage drinking. Paul has late night calls with girlfriends of Ashley after going through the nightly "inquistion" with his parents who discreetly smell his breath when kissing him good night and routinely ask him about drinking. Paul's best friend Billy is around whenever Paul is not on a date and is his confidant. It is through Billy, that we find out Paul has a secret crush on Clementine, the very sexy girlfriend of his weed connection friend, Steve. The scenes of Paul and Billy getting a "shotgun" from Clementine are classic. Background score tranistions by "That 70s Show" composer feels like the TV show especially when they are getting high. Most of the movie is Paul and Billy getting into trouble and meeting new girls with an interesting twist when he gets together with Clementine and her best friend Roxy towards the end of the movie.Read more ›

If you want to hears some NOLA names and a few images of that special time buy it. It gets boring after a while but is somewhat accurate. My time in Fat City was a few years earlier and the drug culture had not kicked in 100%.
It lacks actual footage of the area ie Butterfly Terrace apts, Morning call etc.

Hilarious and interesting! Being a huge fan of "Austin Powers" and "That `70's Show," this movie was right up my alley. Cute and fun, this story mimics the coming of age story with a twist. Truly immersing you in the 1970's, you will be entranced with the realistic feel, setting, and story line. Some may dislike the indie, fresh feel, however, it was the best aspect in my opinion. It is so reminiscent of my younger years, getting into trouble, and ignoring my good intentioned parents. Truth be told, I never experimented within the illegal realm, however it adds a little good-natured humor into the story. However, if illegal substances are an issue, you may not enjoy that aspect of the film. Follow the intricate stories of Paul, Billy, and Ashley as they discover the good, the bad, and the memorable aspects of life in New Orleans, anything goes! Run from the cops, avoid the parents, and fall in love! Experience life in the town where the party never dies, and in an era where partying was a way of life. Cute, innocent, and rebellious! 5/5 stars!

A friend of mine insisted I watch Fat City New Orleans. It didn't seem like something I would normally see myself, but I'm glad I pressed play! I was immediately drawn into the plot and found it to be a charming, honest and funny coming of age story. The writing is brilliant, the performances are spot-on and the production is quite impressive overall. Highly recommended to any of my fellow disco era fanatics!
