Description: This tender off-beat comedy has rubbed too many people the wrong way (or the right way for the wrong reasons) because of its outrageous slapstick, like something by Jim Carrey. The imaginary friend is cavortingly rude for a reason; he served to push the girlchild to do mischief for attention and as a cry for help. Now grown up, the woman has forgotten and is about to lose her soul, so events call for some kind of literal return of her demon to force the exposure of her pain. This psychic crisis is poignantly realistic even if the plot device is less so, thus offering validation to all the bad girls who felt so alone in their rig ... (more)

"Drop Dead Fred, pretty goes the extra mile, to ruin Lizzie's life, and I do mean the extra mile. Strangely enough, the film done differently could have made for an interesting horror/thriller movie."

Movies I Think Should Be Adapted into TV Series (20 movies items)

"Just imagine a girl having to deal with all of the drama of high school, and then all of a sudden her childhood imaginary friend returns making things more complicated. Getting her into trouble everywhere she goes, and making everyone around her think she's crazy because she's talking, yelling, or reacting to someone or something that isn't really there... or is he? I think it'd be great if they made us question that ourselves."

Interesting film facts (453 movies items)

"PolyGram was so disgusted with the final cut of the film that at the last minute they decided to find another studio to sell the distribution rights to. The film's producers showed the final cut to TriStar Pictures, Orion Pictures, and 20th Century Fox. TriStar was run by Mike Medavoy who called the film "a children's movie on drugs" and passed on it. Orion and 20th Century Fox passed on it for unknown reasons. Finally they showed the film to New Line Cinema. New Line CEO Bob Shaye loved the mov"
