Drop Dead Fred

Phoebe Cates plays a separated woman who is reunited with her old childhood imaginary friend who tries to help her out of this mess. This film had a good idea but didn't put it to its full potential. It's unbelievable, wacky and too syrupy sentimental. Unknown Rik Mayall plays the imaginary friend named Drop Dead Fred and is surprisingly entertaining at it; that's about all this movie has going for it.
