I did... :oops: :evil:

Dolph on FS...:
How did I get involved in Fat Slags? That's a good question. I'd ask that agent of mine, but he's sunk in the Thames River. (Laughs)


Why did I make it? I don't know. It was spur of the moment, through a friend of mine. It was a friend of a producer. They were doing a comedy in the UK, and I had an apartment there at the time, and I was spending some time there a couple of years ago. I ended up doing a small role. I think it was a half day's work. What can I say? I don't know if anyone has ever seen it. I have never seen it. But some people who have seen it say that it's funny.

I play a physical trainer. The female leads, who are, well, two fat chicks—fat slags, basically—go to the gym to get in shape with a trainer that they have the hots for, in tight shorts. That was me. It was fun. It was a slapstick comedy, and I hadn't done one before.

Jox, I think the biggest shame about the quality of the film is that Dolph shows a definite gift for slapstick physical comedy with his role, and he comes off very well... it's a shame it's buried inside such a turd. Oh, and as an aside; the original creator of the comic strip was so apalled by the film that he decided to end the strip series. Now, THAT'S bad.

Didn't realise the writer William Osborne had these to his credits: The Scorpion King (2002), Ghost in the Machine (1993), The Real McCoy (1993), Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot (1992) and Twins (1988).

The movie is still in the bottom #100 movies (above 79 others) on IMDB ratings... Someone actually dared defend it: http://24hrfilmsession.miwkpublishing.com/?p=285

A company called Wham! USA actually dared releasing it in the US in 2013 (!) with one of the most amteurish covers although it's vulgarity fits the movie.
