The front of the DVD claims: Fast Cars, Fast Chicks, Fast Food and this movie has it in spades. Of course if you are easily offended, then this movie has enough vulgarities and faux pas in it to have you scrambling for something a little (no, a lot) more politically correct. 

If you are a member of a minority group there is a good chance that this flick is going to offend. If you are a member of a majority group then itís still going to offend. I loved it! 

For those not in the know, Fat Pizza is a show that airs on SBS each week for the last two seasons. Itís rambunctious, rude and the focal point of the movie surprisingly enough revolves around a pizza shop called Fat Pizza, their line being, ďWeíre Big and Weíre Cheesy!Ē Run by the slave driver Bobo, pizza boys Pauly, rapper Sleek the elite and newcomer to the Fat Pizza crew Davo try to make the rounds, get the chicks and try to avoid the wrath of Bobo who is anxiously waiting for the arrival of his mail order bride from Vietnam. 

Itís funny but I would almost say that you would have to be a fan of the series before really getting everything that they want you to out of this flick. The humour is definitely that of the toilet variety and in fact one of the jokes at the start of the movie actually involves a toilet and some disabled people. 

The basic thing to realise about this film is that there is really almost little to no storyline, itís just a continuous laugh fest all the way through with some of the crudest jokes Iíve ever seen in a movie. It's just another day in the lives of these pizza delivery guys.

The film looks great on DVD and has been kept in itís 16:9 enhanced ratio. Audio is good and makes sure that all channels get a bit of a hiding. Your subwoofer will almost explode in some places, sick mate, sick mate, subwoofer! If you haven't seen the movie that line won't mean anything to you yet, but it will, oh yes it will!

Extras are plentiful and will give you even more of the goodness that was in the movie. From a movie buff's perspective, the extras won't tell you much more about the feature, they are placed there essentially to increase upon the experience had watching the film, or fillum or Pauly likes to say.

Recommended for those not easily offended :)
