5.0 out of 5 stars I LOOOOOOOVE this film!, 22 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Drop Dead Fred [DVD] [1991] (DVD)
Drop dead fred is an absolutly fantastic film. I can't even remember how i heard about it - i was born a year after it was even released - but whatever it was that sparked an interest only happened recently. I read lots of reveiws without having seen more than half anf hour of the film and found them all to be dissapointing, all pointing out the flaws and negatives - which, having bought it and now looking back, i cant seem to find in this film.

The hilarious portrayal of Fred by Rik Mayall was fantastic - both brilliantly funny and also amazingly touching when it's needed. Pheobe Cates hits the character of Lizzie perfectly and just brings the tone of the film into something great. And you really have to have a respect for any actor who can keep a straight face when Rik Mayall is hopping about infront of them :o)

I do have something...not a problem...but perhaps a hinderance, i have spotted with this film. You have to have some sort of connecion with being a child...you have to be able to embrace how fun this film is and too many people, it seems, are so focused on how things should be and how things are in their reality that they cant just let go and love the humour and love in this film! I feel that even though the reception of this film seemed to bomb, for anyone who felt it as it was supposed to have been seen they will always hold thias film dear to them.

If you are a fan of Rik, if you like to laugh or if you think you still have the spark left that is echoed in this film then you NEED to see it! And if you dont you should see it anyway and it might help bring it back. There is a very good chance you'll end up falling in love with this film just as i have.x
