Pizza Shop


Director: George O’Barts
Writer: George O’Barts
Released: June 2013

A “raunchy off-color comedy” is an accurate description of Pizza Shop – a cringe-worthy and slow-paced film.

To be fair, the director and writer of the show has said the film is aimed at the audience of immature males. Therefore, I am not the target audience!

An hour and a half of blatant toilet humour and crude content, possibly inspired by the fertile imagination of three teenagers. (At least I hope it wasn’t inspired by real life!)

I wanted to enjoy this movie but the set-ups were too long, the characters weren’t likable or relatable, and the camera work was static – or drifted from side to side indecisively on a dolly.

Wide shot after wide shot kept the viewer disconnected from the action, and the audio quality was poor. From room reverb to the occasional ‘hum’.

The acting wasn’t smooth, with the actors waiting for each other’s lines and occasionally breaking the fourth wall.

Cast_Group_shot_with_directorThe dialogue explained every thought and action, nothing is left to the viewers’ imagination.

Unfortunately, not a film to be recommended unless you enjoy crude, filthy humour, and have insomnia

Good effort, though. Making a feature-length film requires a lot of dedication and enthusiasm. So kudos for the effort.
