Thanks to Advance Screenings and GoFobo I had the chance to experience The Fluffy Movie at the Regal E-Walk Stadium 13 (247 W. 42 St. NY) before it opens in theaters. Normally I would not be one to go to a movie theater to see a comedy performance but this is the next best thing to seeing Gabriel Iglesias aka Fluffy perform live – which is by the way something I’ve not yet have the pleasure to do. So when given the chance to obtain screening tickets I jumped on it (and just an FYI I have turned down/released screening tickets before even if Free, my time is more valuable than money).
The movie opens as giving a glimpse of his early life and with that the laughter begins. Gabriel Iglesias “Fluffy” is as real as real can get and touches on so many subjects that we all can relate to. If you’ve seen any of his shows you already know how he can find the humor on anything from annoying teenage hygiene to difficult struggles with weight, not to forget his good ol’ pal MARTIIINNNN!!! The Fluffy Movie was particularly touching for me given the rough subjects of single mothers, raising boys and step parenting, which he presented hilariously light hearted. The Fluffy Movie did not lack anything in comedic value, the girl next to me was making funnier laughing sounds than me – if that’s even possible – considering we were in a public theater. Even as we left the theater I heard people talking about it and laughing as they repeated repeated parts of the movie.
Now, as every good counselor one opens with all the positives before presenting the areas of grow so here goes. I was hoping for a little more movie, but that was just me. Maybe some clips from some of the many experiences on the road mixed with some comic reenactments. But that is just a matter of opinion based on the expectation that I personally have when I hear or see the word “movie” on something. That said, I would definitely recommend it. It is not often we can go see Fluffy perform, so make it dinner and The Fluffy Movie come this July.
