Drop Dead FredWhen Elizabeth was a girl, she had a mischivous imaginary friend called Drop Dead Fred. Now grown up, Fred re-enters her life after her womanizing husband leaves her and she moves back in with her controlling mother. It is a zappy movie that emphasizes self-actualization.

Critic Reviews of "Drop Dead Fred"Los Angeles TimesMay 05, 2014
Drop Dead Fred is an erratic stab at making madness sensible, a slapstick nightmare that goes too sane, that tries too hard to be both good and rotten.Chicago TribuneMay 05, 2014
This is easily one of the worst films I've ever seen.Philadelphia InquirerMay 05, 2014
The episodic flashbacks are cast in an unfunny Freudian light -- domineering mother, helpless hubby, the tragically withdrawn child. What a laugh riot!Orlando SentinelMay 05, 2014
The movie is no comic masterpiece, but it is consistently amusing in a way that sometimes reminded me of a kiddie picture and at other times of a more sophisticated comedy.Seattle TimesMay 05, 2014
It tries too hard to mimic Beetlejuice, especially in British comic Rik Mayall's frantic performance as the title character -- Mayall is no Michael Keaton -- but it has a whimsical comic energy.Chicago TribuneMay 05, 2014
Drop Dead Fred is a movie for people who like the sound of fingernails on blackboards and the feel of a drill bearing into a bicuspid.Empire MagazineMay 05, 2014
That any of it, however, should suddenly, melodramatically lead to Elizabeth learning to assert herself is, to say the least, unpersuasive.Philadelphia Daily NewsMay 05, 2014
It's rare that a movie so cleverly conceived is so poorly executed.Baltimore SunMay 05, 2014
The film is in desperate need of flow. It plays like a collection of bits, skits that have been thrown together with little eye to continuity.Radio TimesMay 05, 2014
It's particularly irritating if you've seen the much better Harvey.South Florida Sun-SentinelMay 05, 2014
A charmless, irritating psychological fantasy that can`t decide whether to aim at kids or adults.TV GuideMay 05, 2014
Drop Dead Fred is a therapeutic fable for people who believe that by becoming an adult, one inevitably loses the capacity to have fun. But the alternative it suggests is nothing short of horrifying.
