DVD Synopsis and information:
The Secret and Invisible childhood pal from hell - returns! The super cute Phoebe Cates stars as Elizabeth, a young woman who things she has problems, that is until Fred, her childhood secret friend, pops back into her life and reeks havoc and turns her ordinary life upside down. Is Fred the worst thing that could happen to her? Elizabeth has no idea what shenanigans she is in for when Drop Dead Fred gets cranked up after being tucked away for so long. Cates and Mayall both have a funny and interesting give and take throughout the film as they portray their respective characters. Widescreen version just came in. Drop Dead Fred holds up very will 20 plus years later after its theatrical release. The script is hilarious.

You will be in comedic awe of the antics of Fred throughout this film. Fred is always cooking up something zany for Elizabeth while she is always trying to maintain some semblance of order with this wacky situation. If you are in the mood for a strange and trippy fantasy comedy this is for you. As you watch this film it gets funnier as it goes on. Rarely a comedy comes along that is willing to some really strange things for laughs. Cates pulls of the conservative young woman that's trying to do the right thing role off very well. You'll love Fred's wardrobe and hair styles.

From literally pancake face makeup to Fred looking up dresses he's do anything for a gag. Fred's crass colors of greene and yellow follow him throughout the film, regardless of what crazy costume he is in. Phoebe plays perfectly off Rik Mayall and vice versa. Oscar winner Marsha Mason is also funny and solid in her role as Cate's mother. Prepare to laugh until it hurts. The script is funny and well written. Mayall keeps you guessing throughout. You'll find something new to chuckle at every time you watch this comic gem. Drop Dead Fred continues to hold up well over 20 years after its release. Fred is so brutally funny in this, the comic writing is terrific.

Cates can't hardly distinguish if Mayall is teasing or torturing her throughout this romp. Mayall's portrayal of Fred weaves a sense of fun and wickedness at the same time. The movie pulls off both a sense of innocence and meanness simultaneously. Drop Dead Fred is full of special makeup and fall down comedic gags with a wicked sense of humor. Silly, zany and downright hilarious is what you'll think to yourself when watching this film. With one bizarre joke and mishap after another Elizabeth can count on Fred sabotaging her life in some way. For a film that's over 20 years old the jokes and gags are still funny.

Quirky does not begin to describe this movie, as it is the true definition of madness incarnate. Tripping and being tripped abounds in this film in addition to slapstick and absurdity heaven. Rik looks so silly and terrific at the same time in his green and yellow attire with his red hair. There is a good mix of British and American humor. Drop Dead Fred is worth repeated viewings. As always Drop Dead Fred DVD delivers great laughs and some surprises too. Fred is a mix of a child's invisible friend and a hurricane.

You'll notice throughout that Rik's hair and outfits change with slight differences in style but the color theme always remains. All the elements come together for a perfect comedy storm in this movie. This is a comic classic with Rik Mayall giving a great physical comedy performance and Cates does her part by being cute, perplexed, sad and funny on queue. With a Remake of Drop Dead Fred possibly in the pipeline the original should have a place in your DVD collection. This DVD has a crisp and clean full screen transfer. It's cool to have this comedy on home video. A must own for fans of super silly comedies! Drop Dead Fred DVD remains a favorite comedy from the early 90s. Drop Dead Fred remains a great early 90s comedy and holds up extremely well, almost as good as Drop's infamous orange hair!
