Plump Fiction is a 1997 parody film released by Rhino Entertainment. Directed by Bob Koherr, it is a parody of 1990's films, along with violent and convoluted films in particular. The overall story is a take-off of 1994's Pulp Fiction, along with other films including Natural Born Killers, Nell, Forrest Gump, Reality Bites, and Clerks.
This obvious spoof of Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction features exterminators Jimmy and Julius who parody hit-men. Marsellus and coke-addict Mia are replaced by compulsive eater Mimi and husband Montello. Wannabee writer Bunny arrives with Forrest Gump-like Bumpkin. Psychos Nicky and Vallory disrupt the story-lines, as do some nuns with guns.
Why It Sucks
- Lazy and forced attempts of humor.
- Wastes the talents of Tommy Davidson, Sandra Bernhard, and Jimmie Walker.
- Cringe-worthy acting, especially from Bernhard.
- Making a parody of a film that is already a comedy sounds like a terrible idea.
- Bad dialogue.
- The poster for this film is childish.
- The soundtrack is solid.
- Despite the bad acting, both Dan Castellaneta and Pamela Adlon give out somewhat decent performances.
The film holds a "0%" rating on Rotten Tomatoes, based on five reviews.
