I have to disagree. That film cracks me up. Rik Mayall who plays Fred is painfully funny. Anyone else british agree ? It must be our sense of humour.

Rik Mayall was great in it I thought. It's Phoebe Cates that made the movie awful...

Oh man....Bluck....he was HORRIBLE! I wanted to strangle him. I couldn't take it...I totally remember that movie, cause we were in Florida at Disney, and my brother in law and his wife watched it in their room, and they said they loved it, and I told them they were nuts...cause it was so bad. I think it should be in the top 10 ultimately bad movies I have ever seen.

Gosh...that movie I saw previewed tonight call "Date Movie"...it looks the same way to me, it looks horrible.

Ha! Date Movie looks funny, but I'm probably biased because I like Alyson Hannigan.

Drop Dead Fred was okay, I have it on DVD but I don't watch it often. Even for someone with my annoying movie character tolerance level he got kind of annoying sometimes. Yay for the Carrie Fisher role though.

(Another tidbit for the people who follow my Big Wolf on Campus tidbits: The most popular episode was Imaginary Fiend, a parody of Drop Dead Fred that was a million times better than the movie. And, as it turns out, it didn't take a huge budget and an hour and a half to do the storyline either. Actually, if they'd used the plot from Big Wolf in the movie it might be kind of funny to see Fred trying to kill Pheobe Cates' character.)

It must be a British thing because as Noms says Rik Mayall = comic genius

I recommend reading his book too - awesome.

You were suppose to watch this movie after the first five minutes? [Razz]

Maybe I need to finish watching it next time. [Wink]

On a serious note, this movie is a great example of how our cultural backgrounds can influence whether we think a movie is Totally Awesome or Totally Lame.

Yeah, I think it could be a cultural thing. It was just a different type of humor. It's all good [Smile] !
