5.0 out of 5 stars Get ready for laughs, here comes MBFIM Feb. 15 2006
By dontmakeme - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only TRUE spoof of independent films Feb. 14 2006
By Into the Vortex - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Special Edition comedy DVD I've ever owned !!! Jan. 25 2006
By Polish Gold - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, funny tribute to indie films Feb. 14 2006
By Kris Perry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: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.

Also, one could not discuss this film without mentioning Zlotorynski's use of Pi, though in an extremely distorted fashion. I was upset with the distance in which the director traveled from Pi's plot in his spoof, but that didn't stop me from laughing. Instead of trying to decode the stock exchange and find a number that controls the universe, Maximillian is looking for the secret of the perfect corned beef sandwich recipe. I wish the electric drill gun scene could somehow have been added and spoofed as well in the film.

Lastly, other films that were alluded to in the My Big Fat Independent Movie are Amelie, Run Lola Run, The Good Girl and My Big Fat Greek Wedding, of course. This film is perfect for anyone who loves the indie genre and films in general. Even a non-indie person will laugh throughout the feature due to Zlotorynski's wonderful directing and the writing genius of Chris Gore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laughs from Sidewalk Film Festival... Jan. 7 2006
By Daniel R. Walters - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I had a chance to view this movie @ Sidewalk and let me tell you, I laughed so hard it STILL hurts. Chris Gore has done an outstanding job of taking the traditional "parody" movie genre to the independent film sense. With Jason Mews (any Kevin Smith movie) and Paget Brewster ("Huff", "Andy Richter Controls the Universe") this movie will have you rolling from open to close!
