It's bigger and cheesier.
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
Though I'm sure that, when these things occur in the real world, they
are 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.
