  • Summary: "Blazing Saddles" did it to the Western. "Airplane" did it to the Disaster Flick. "Scary Movie" did it to the Horror Film. "Not Another Teen Movie" did it to the, uh, Teen Movie. And now, it's time for Independent Films to get what they got comin' to 'em. (Aloha Pictures)

    I would like to praise My Big Fat Independent Movie for achieving something that most independently-produced comedies fail to do: it creates laughs.

    Has a knowing, insider quality that could generate a modest cult following.
  3. It might have looked good on paper, but the results are mixed at best; despite a few early chuckles, the whole thing gets tired after 20 minutes.
  4. 25
    Painfully unfunny spoof.
  5. 25
    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?
  6. 20
    Feels motivated by envy more than anything else-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.
