Plump Fiction: 5/10
7 July 2004 | by (Anywhere, USA) – See all my reviews

Ever since Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker broke up, we've been hard pressed to find good parody movies. The Scary Movies gave us a laugh or two, but nothing like Airplane! or The Naked Gun. Plump Fiction is a hit-or-miss parody of Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Natural Born Killers, and other violent, (usually) Tarantino movies. Some of it works, some doesn't, but after a while, you just want to quit.

Jimmy (Paul Dinello) and Julius (Tommy Davidson) are two exterminators who are sent by their boss Montello (Robert Costanzo) to eliminate rodents from Nicky (Matthew Glave) and Vallory (Pamela Segall) Cox's apartment. Jimmy also has to take Montello's plump wife Mimi (Julie Brown) out to lunch. Throw in some references to the overbudgeting of Waterworld, some Priscilla: Queen of the Desert and Forrest Gump, and that's Plump Fiction.

The movie starts off well. It's almost scene for scene with Pulp, and with some very funny bits poking fun at Pulp, such as Jimmy's fascination with telling people what they call things in different countries. Basically, most of the parodies are pretty funny, until about halfway through the movie. Then it gets boring, unfunny, and repetitive. The whole Reservoir Nuns gag was one of the worst things I've ever seen. It's just a bunch of people in nun outfits cursing. For ten minutes. Plump Fiction does have its moments, and Tommy Davidson is awesome, but ultimately, it fails in becoming a lasting parody. It's almost like an SNL skit turned movie. None of those work out.

My rating: 5/10

Rated R for strong language and violence.
