THE FLUFFY MOVIE captures worldwide comic phenomenon Gabriel 'Fluffy' Iglesias in never-before-seen footage from his sold-out 'Unity Through Laughter' tour. Spanning over 23 countries, and more than 400 cities, this is the summer's must-see big screen comedy event.
The only time The Fluffy Movie reaches a point of engagement is when Iglesias talks about meeting his estranged father for the first time. But even then, he tosses away the fact that his mom passed away just as he was getting to know his dad, a detail he obviously finds harrowing. The best confessional comics meet that kind of pain head-on, triggering not only their own catharsis but that of the audience as well. Like much of Iglesias’ material, the movie almost gets in your face before flashing a friendly smile and forgettably floating away. Fluffy isn’t awful, just disappointingly lightweight. C
There is a little bad language in Spanish, but it just spiced up the comedy, and would not be threatening if you chose to take your teens to the movie. For this The Fluffy Movie I give it “dos pulgares para arriba”?
