The scene in the restaurant, when Mimi chews ice cubes is a parody of a coke advertisement of a lady sucking ice cubes. See more »
Mimi and Jimmy start dancing on one table in the restaurant. However, in the shots where we cannot see their feet, they are obviously using more than one table because of the distance between them. See more »
All films should begin with an opening monologue by Sandra Bernhard. It's so hard to fail after the inimitable Sandra sets the mood. Parody such as Plump Fiction can either soar or fail miserably. I was pleasantly surprised to see PF in the former category. A clever script, an excellent cast, and a ubiquitous tongue in cheek kept this little underground gem glittering. Particularly memorable components were: well, the inclusion of Julie Brown, which is always a good thing; a brilliant and unexpected cameo by Jodie Foster's "Nell"; and the show-stealer was a brilliant send-up of Juliette Lewis's white trash Natural Born Killers heroine.
And then there's Sandra, of course.
