Glorious characters in a funny story...
30 May 2020 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I had not even heard about this 2008 movie titled "Fatso" from director Arild Fröhlich before in 2020, when I was given the chance to sit down and watch it. Actually I had the chance back in 2019, but I just never got around to watching it before now.

Turns out that "Fatso" was actually an enjoyable movie. Sure, it was a bit corny and sort of sustaining itself on its sexual baseline. But hey, if movies such as "American Pie" can do it so well, why not a movie from Norway? And director Arild Fröhlich went on to show that it could be done.

The storyline in "Fatso", while a bit simplistic, is actually one that you get well submerged into and you can't help but be brought in a good mood and have some laughs when you sit through this movie.

"Fatso" really worked out so well for me by the wonderfully quirky and off-beat - no pun intended - character gallery that was in the movie. There were just some really enjoyable characters, and very memorable characters as well.

The comedy in "Fatso" was good, especially because it wasn't over-done. There was also a good amount of proper storytelling, character development and drama thrown into the mixture.

I am rating "Fatso" a six out of ten stars.
