This film was so so wrong. politically incorrect . That's why i thought it was so so funny! (by andrew-416)
I've seen the tv show a few times. I thought the movie would be pushing it, trying to stretch the tv show to a movie length. Plus i thought it would be one of those low budget aussie movies that mainly appealed to ethnic audiences. Like Wog Boy etc. So i wasn't expecting too much from the movie.I was p***ing myself laughing through lots of the movie. I thought i was going to die because i was laughing too much.There's jokes about race/religions, public tradegies sept 11 & more . So if you are offended by bad taste jokes, stay away. This is where i thought some of the jokes <more>
were soooooo wrong, but i found it sooooo funny.I never wondered what time it was, or how long to go, as i usually do in movies including bourne identity . This movie kept me amused all the time.A LOT better than what i thought it would be, and i'd be happy to pay the full admission price again to drag my mates there.
If you're looking to watch a Politically Correct movie, this ain't it. (by john-2266)
Fat Pizza is a fast-paced comedy that just about makes fun of every ethnicity, creed, color, size, and sexual preference of the peoples in Australia, it seems Having never been to Australia, I'm only guessing they are making fun of everyone ... It's definitely low-brow humor at it's best!I realize that Fat Pizza may not be everyone's cup-o-tea. If you're one of those super-sensitive they-shouldn't-make-fun-of-anyone-or-anything sort of people, stay away from this movie! You will get your feelings hurt!Though if you're like me, a person who's sick to death of <more>
all this Politically Correct crap run amok in movies, you'll probably love this particular movie!The only criticism I have about the movie is how hard it was to find it here in the U.S.. I found it by chance at a garage sale.I give this movie a 10!
This movie is a fully sick ule. A real Aussie comedy with everything you could ask for. Heaps of sex, drug use, chicks, violence and ethnic humour goes to good use in the best Aussie movie of 2003 and possibly of all time , that really makes me laugh everytime I see it. Paul Fenech has come a long way since his time as a cleaner at SBS, and now has evolved his great idea pinch into a great cult comedy that even gets a couple of laughs from people who hate the show.All polictally correct whingers, wankers and whiners are not invited to this chick fest as Sleek, Paulie, Rocky, Habib, Bobo, and <more>
newcomer, skip Davo Dinkum go on all their usually funny adventures getting ready for Bobo's wedding with his mail order bride. A must see for every wog, with sick burnouts, hot chicks, sex, subwoofers and fast cars to please even the most conservative ethnic.If your a fan of the TV show, or just out for a quick laugh, see it ya zibt. You'd be an absolute stooge if ya missed it.
Okay well anyone who's seen the TV show would be able to take an educated guess that this movie would be "dumb, but funny". Well, having just seen this film, I can tell you that this is not the case. It is in fact extremely dumb, and absolutely HILARIOUS!Don't go expecting a thought-provoking intellectual film as if you would anyway but do expect to have a few laughs and you definitely won't be disappointed. I was constantly laughing the whole way through and absolutely cracking up at some points the "Police Now Targeting" sign, for example . It's <more>
fast-paced, non-stop action and a great ensemble cast.Anyway, there's no point analysing a film like this, so just go see it!
Fat Pizza should not be viewed as a movie. It should be viewed as a chunk of cultural revelation.Multiculturalism for those who have never experienced it in its dirtiest, most naked form is a pleasant but scary mess.Paulie Fenech has done a great job in revealing this mess to the uninitiated who will want the movie banned and to the experienced who will never want it to end .Almost all comments here have been ravingly positive, but it must be noted that the negative ones seem to have come from British nationals who have probably taken exception to their queen copping a load from a lowly <more>
colonial cleaner at the Opera House in Sydney .Is Lizzie a bushpig? Does she grunt? Watch the movie and then make your own mind up.Cinematography is excellent and creative. Sound is likewise great. Plot is... um... good. Characters are entirely believable assuming you are a travelled non-xenophobe .This is a great work which will have you pissing your pants within the first ten minutes. If not, then you NEED to give yourself an uppercut because you deserve it.Some commenters have suggested and even stated that this movie is a "no brainer". All I can say is that they are not very observant. Intelligent social and political comment abound, albeit between the brutish lines.A great, fun, and yet somehow disturbing movie.OTMP off to make pizza
It's been said that this movie sets Australian culture back 20 years. Whoever said that I read it somewhere, but can't remember where has his/her head in his/her armpit. It's the side of Australian culture outsiders rarely see. Illegal immigrants ARE arriving in leaky boats. Police ARE unfairly targeting ethnic minorities. Fast-food corporations eg McDoggles ARE being mean to the little guy and I don't just mean Pauly . People ARE making speed in their backyards. Backpackers ARE being murdered.Though I'm sure that, when these things occur in the real world, they are <more>
nowhere near as funny as they are in Fat Pizza. This movie is utterly hilarious from beginning to end. Sure, the humour may not be everyone's cup of tea. I certainly wouldn't feel comfortable watching it with my Nanna.It's unfair to say there is no structure to the plot. There is. Just not a standard one. Which, in this age of Hollywood formula, should be regarded as a good thing. This movie breaks the rules, baby!If you enjoy watching the Pizza TV show on SBS, you'll have a blast. It's longer, with more jokes and cameos crammed in. A family-size Pizza, if you like.If I had to choose between Fat Pizza and Kangaroo Jack as a representation of Australian culture, I'd choose Fat Pizza in a second.
Fat Pizza is an extreme big-screen version of the Australian television series of the same name. Regular narration by writer/producer/director/star Paul Fenech's character "Pauly" provides a feasible link for a range of events surrounding pizza-chef Bobo's impending mail-order marriage.Rap music, ethnic rivalry, anglo-ignorance, street gangs, illegal immigrants, sex, drugs, religion and sexuality: Fat Pizza handles all these topics with absolute irreverence.There's a "cast of thousands" of Australian sport and TV icons playing small parts with the late gay <more>
television identity Bernard King appearing several times as a leather daddy tempting Fat Pizza's delivery boys . Delivery boy/rapper Sleek also finds himself irresistibly responding to gay men, even though he thinks he's a chick magnet.Fat Pizza is unapologetically Australian, with a huge thumping soundtrack, and fast pace. Paul Fenech has created a major work of contemporary Australian piss-taking.
...but I found this to be an enjoyable movie. I probably never saw the show since it's Australian and I live in the US but the characters are easy to understand fairly quickly since most have only a few motivations, most of which most comedy movie male characters in a certain age do: chicks, booze, good times... The usual. It's probably not more than a rental I happened upon it late night on one of the Encore movie channels but if you like movies that tell the tale of a "crazy night with kooky hi-jinks" and don't feel the need to be politically correct every second of <more>
your life, you'll have a good time. It's not a movie of the year in any way but there's a lot of laughs to be had.
