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 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.
