Guys if you don’t remember Drop Dead Fred then we can’t be friends. So my grandmother was going through storage and found a ton of my VHS’ so obviously I took them home pulled out my VHS Player (Yes I sitll have it, but it literally died the same night) and started to watch this movie again. I’ve probably seen it a billion times. I can quote the movie word for word… It’s absolutely one of my favorite movies of all time.
What’s it about? It came out in 1991 (I was 6) It’s about a girl who has an imaginary friend growing up because her mother basically hated her. Her mother locked away drop dead fred so she could never let him out. He finally came back once she went back to her mothers house and set him free. He returns to try to make her life “happy” again, but obviously does a lot of harm on the way. It’s definitely one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen as a child. Watching it now as I’m 30 it brought back so many memories. As soon as I started quoting lines from the movie to my sister she would reply with the next line. That’s how you know this movie impacted you. I definitely shouldn’t have been waching this movie at 6, but I’m glad I did!
From a Chick’s Perspective 5/5. This is my first throwback movie review so I hope you liked it! This movie is obviously one of my faves so I have ot give it a 5/5. Please go watch it. Even as an adult it’s pretty fucked up and hilarious
