Trivia

Unlike the television series The Fat Slags (1992), the creative team at the British comic magazine "Viz", where the "Fat Slags" characters originally appeared, had no editorial control over this production. It was reported that they were so appalled by the final result that they dropped the characters from the magazine following the film's release. However, the strip was not dropped and the comic creators never had any intention of doing so. This was probably based on a misquote. See more »

Yawn...
9 September 2006 | by heartagram-samSee all my reviews

OK this movie ain't bad, I mean it was an OK laugh.

It just lacks any real plot, it's bland, and the humour doesn't really make up for the whole film being about two, fat, loud mouthed northerners.

I was just really shocked it wasn't better, mainly because there are LOADS of top notch British actors in it. The character 'San' was in 'Smack the Pony' that was really popular, James Dreyfus, was in 'Gimme gimme gimme' another popular show. Ralf Little, also in another popular show, 'The Royale Family'. Not to mention Anthony Head and Naomi Campbell. The film makers even got Eamonn Homes on there, along with the guy that used to do 'Have I Got News For You', Angus Deayton. And many more...

Why am I mentioning these names that most readers don't bat an eyelid to? It's because they're decent British actors/actresses/whatever, and they are in this s*** film. Whoever made this film had a lot of cash, to bag all those actors/actresses to star in it. Now all of them wish they hadn't starred in it, I bet they all deny they are in it, it's that bad.

But hey, what the hell can you expect? It's called 'FAT SLAGS' and its based of a comic. If there's 'nowt' else on, watch it, its a cheap laugh. Just don't expect a HILARIOUS film, with a plot.
