Review – Drop Dead Fred

Any inner child film festival should feature this picture prominently. A woman (Phoebe Cates) recently separated from her husband and otherwise down on her luck suddenly finds herself rejoined by the title character (Rik Mayall), her mischief-making childhood imaginary friend. Most of the screen time is taken up with Fred causing trouble from minor pranks to major disasters while the protagonist takes the blame. Overall the production is mo entertaining than it should have been given that most of the humor is more than a little obnoxious and the ending far too sappy. Mildly amusing
