My Big Fat Independent Movie

Way back in January, I was asked to review My Big Fat Independent Movie on DVD. It was right after I saw Brokeback Mountain, so I think the movie promoters thought I might be a good choice for doing that.

Little did they know that I'm not near as cool as they thought I am. Fortunately, I had LabKat around to explain all the vague references to me. I got some of them. I even spotted one she missed. I identified the Lanky Man as a Christopher Walken-type.

It was amusing. If I had seen all these movies, it would have been friggin hilarious. LabKat has seen many them thanks to her Netflix membership. If you like indy movies and have seen lots of them in the 90s, you would enjoy this film. As it was, it wasn't the worst two hours of my life and I would recommend it. Even if you don't get all the references, it can be entertaining just for the way it mocks the indy genre. If you've seen nothing but Pulp Fiction, you'll get a kick out of it.

Best movie quote:
Lanky Man: You know what they say. Lesbians: better than e-mail.

    I have thought about seeing this since I am indie movie guy, but the box cover made it look unappetizing...maybe I will give a try after all!

    Only thing is that there is a lot of "racy/sexual" humor, for lack of a better term. I'm not sure if you'll be offended or not. I thought it was hilarious, but not how you might take it. I would recommend it to someone with a high tolerance for that. Plus, I have a copy, you can borrow mine.
