Did You Know?


Molly: [holds up a candy] Oh, I loved these as a child. You could open them up like this - this is what I always used to do to eat them, then you eat the whitesh stuff, which is probably made with animal lard, but I always say to myself, 'You know, if you don't enjoy yourself not only once in a while, what's the use, you know?'
Bud: Boy, you just don't shut up, do you?
Molly: It was funny, because when Chuck and I first got married, everything we ate was orange and pink...
Bud: Would you please shut up?
Molly: And now, orange...

Incredibly odd indie comedy took all of my expectations and savagely beat them over the head
20 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

Is that a good thing? To be honest I'm still not entirely sure.

The cover and plot description of Fatty Drives The Bus shown here on IMDb doesn't even scratch the surface of how utterly bizarre this movie is. I did enjoy the movie to a certain extent, the assortment of bizarre characters are memorable, and the film has a very oddball, surreal sense of humor, which I can get into. There are several scenes where I found myself laughing out loud, and others where I felt very uncomfortable.

Unfortunately there are some scenes that are very slow and go on for way longer than they needed to, some of the scenes are just plain stupid, and, quite frankly, some scenes are just too weird to be enjoyable.

I really don't know who I would recommend this to, as you do need to have a very specific sense of humor to enjoy it. If you are a fan of comedians such as Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, I would say at least give this one a shot.
