  • 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.

    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.

    Looks like some of these people haven't even seen this movie, but they sure hate Chris Gore and Film Threat! Bottom line: if you like indie films AND you have a sense of humor, you will find something to like about this movie. Anyone who gives this movie a ZERO rating simply doesn't meet one of those two criteria. Expand

    Whether you love indie movies or hate 'em, this one will make you laugh. In the same league as Not Another Teen Movie.

    Chris Gore is a genius! No-one, and I mean no-one could have come up with a great spoof of indies like this guy!

    Horrible rip-off of the far superior "Scary Movie."

    Did anyone else notice that film threat was the only publication to give a perfect 100 out of 100? the founder of film threat is chris gore, the writer of this movie. dude has a horrible sense of humor, but at least his employees are down for the cause. that being said, i thought darren keefe was great in this role, but even better in a little known short called "secret santa deluxe." what is a secret santa deluxe, you ask?? just try and find out.

    I've never sat through a comedy and been so stone faced the entire time. Weak joke after weak joke. Don't bother with this.
