    Movie Review - My Big Fat Independent Movie

    Where Scary Movie poked fun at horror films and Airplane! mocked
    disaster flicks, My Big Fat Independent Movie attempts to skewer a
    low-budget industry that has become a major business. Unfortunately,
    more often than not, the picture doesn't succeed, and part of the
    problem undoubtedly lies with the fact that most of the more than two
    dozen films that director Philip Zlotorynski, along with screenwriters
    Adam Schwartz and Chris Gore, attempted to ridicule actually were quite
    good. To their credit, they do uncover the formulaic approach that
    drives the industry -- that is, the arty abandonment of convention just
    for the sake of it -- but in doing so, they completely lose their focus.
    Simply put, spoofs are supposed to be funny, and My Big Fat
    Independent Movie is tediously humor-free.

    This is an excerpt. To read the complete review, please visit:
