Plump Fiction

Plump Fiction, 1997

I’d never heard a single thing about this movie until one day in March 2004 when I saw it for sale at Video Ezy, Stud Park. In the ten years since then, I again failed to see or hear one iota about it. I always secretly held out hope that it would be an undiscovered cult classic of satire and comedy.

Unfortunately, the reason I hadn’t heard anything about it is because it sucks. 1/10 beans. The only good joke was that the guy playing John Travolta would continually ask people, “You know what they call ____ in France?”. Doesn’t sound funny, but it got a laugh out of me.

And actually, the girl who was playing the Mallory Knox character really had Juliette Lewis’ acting down pat. That was the most impressive part of the movie, for me.

The whole thing basically led up to one final joke; a clever commentary on the fashion of movies that aren’t in chronological order. But that joke was obvious from the first five minutes of the movie.
