Big Mamma's Boy

Big Mamma's Boy (Franco di Chiera, 2011) wr. Frank Lotito; Frank Lotito, Holly Valance, Carmelina di Guglielmo, George Kapiniaris, Costas Kilias, Maria Venuti, Steve Mouzakis, Jim Russell, Pia Miller, Natalie Gauci; comedy; WA

I thought Big Mamma’s Boy was supposed to be a WA film, but it was shot in Victoria for some reason: the incumbent WA government not being noted for its support for cinema. Another bad thing is seeing Holly Valance (a model, not an actress) in a lead role in two films in one year – or in my case two nights! And because bad things come in threes, the Madman DVD I bought broke down during the end of the credits – as if the distributor wasn’t sincerely promoting this very ordinary film.
