An Excellent Film
I’m mystified at why some people consider this film “mediocre”. Yes, Fred is an annoying ass, but the story requires him to be this way. I think those who “get” this film understand the complexities of the film’s premise, retreat into fantasy isn’t healthy but sometimes it’s the only refuge a person has, Fred is as destructive as he is supportive but every annoying action requires the Phoebe Cates character to strengthen her own boundaries and sense of purpose.
Okay, I don’t want to sound like Doctor Joyce Brothers, just find it ironic that what some people don’t like about this film is what distinguishes it from the usual Hollywood bull***t, Fred isn’t cute and cuddly, that would have been false, imagine Robin Williams as Fred…that film would be a complete waste of time.
Drop Dead Laughing!
Drop Dead Fred is a side-splittingly hilarious film, with Rik Mayall as the fantastic lead role – Drop Dead Fred. After breaking up with her boyfriend and losing her job, Elizabeth returns to her mother’s house. After discovering a taped up jack-in-the-box in the cupboard, Drop Dead Fred escapes from his prison, and bursts out into freedom … only chaos can ensue now! Phoebe Cates, who plays Elizabeth, now has a whole new load of trouble on her hands. Fred is her childhood imaginary friend – and only she can see him! There are so many funny parts in this film, it’s impossible to name them all, but Rik Mayall never fails to bring up the laughs in any scene, as he gives a highly energetic, enthusiastic performance. The ending is really touching and I can never forget how when I was younger I always got upset by it. It beautifully concludes the movie, and will make you feel warm inside. Watch it and try not to laugh. It’s near impossible.
