Rating: 3/5 -- Clever at times, hilarious on occasion, but doesn't quite make it into the spoof hall of fame. Full Review

This low-budget effort lacks the wit necessary to sustain its brief 80-minute running time.
Hollywood Reporter
Dec 29, 2005
Rating: 1/5 -- Too many corners cut, not enough quality control, and a screenplay that simply wasn't ready for camera. Full Review

Oct 22, 2005
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.
Village Voice
Nov 21, 2005
Rating: 2/5 -- My Big Fat Independent Movie is a frenetic attempt to spoof every major art-house film of the last decade.
New York Times
Nov 28, 2005
Rating: C+ -- If you've seen all the above films, this will all sound just as silly as it is. If you haven't, it will just sound cuckoo.
Detroit News

Rating: 2.5/5 -- Hilarious parody of contemporary indie cinema.

Product Description:

In the tradition of SCARY MOVIE and NOT ANOTHER TEEN MOVIE, this spoof on the world of independent cinema pokes fun at such indie film clichés as the unhappy ending, the forging of unlikely bonds, lesbian romances, and extramarital affairs. By taking to an extreme such archetypical artsy characters as the hitman, the swinger, the disgruntled retail worker, and the dreamer, the film gives the oh-so-serious world of highbrow filmmaking a lowbrow edge. With notable cameos by such comic actors as Bob Odenkirk (MR. SHOW), MY BIG FAT INDEPENDENT MOVIE turns films such as MAGNOLIA, SWINGERS, THE GOOD GIRL, and PULP FICTION on their heads.
