A woman trying struggling to find her place in life suddenly has to deal with the appearance of her childhood imaginary friend. This movie feels like a horror movie more then a family friendly movie just a ugly waste of film.

This is probably my favorite movie about an imaginary friend. Very weird and kind of dark, but still fun.

A reasonable idea scuppered by an utterly witless script leaving Mayall floundering in a loud and irritating attempt to make us laugh.

This is not a good movie- it's actually a really bad movie. The sad thing is, it could have been interesting if it hadn't been so childish and stupid. I mean, I know that the character of Drop Dead Fred is supposed to be childish and stupid but this movie went about it all wrong. It didn't need to resort to gross-out "humor" and annoying slapstick; maybe if it had left that stuff out, gotten a better script, etc, Drop Dead Fred could have actually been okay- maybe even good. Because I like the idea behind this movie, I just didn't like this movie. The few genuine moments about imaginary friends and leaving childhood behind and all of that were nice, but those scenes were few and far between. Just like the humor. Although I did have to laugh a few times just because of how ridiculous it …
