5 The perfect family filmLynsey1963 | 16/07/2008 | See all Lynsey1963's reviews (47)I LOVE Drop Dead Fred, always have. I watched it as a child & still thouroughly enjoy it as an adult, its everything you want from a family film, cute story, so funny & very heart-warming. My nieces & nephews love it now too which just goes to show how good it is, all kids will love it, I guess if you're a little over-sensitive though you may want to wait until your kids are a little older to see it as there're tiny adult references, I personally have no problem letting my 5 year old nephew watch it though, he loves it & I don't know anyone who doesn't. Rik Mayall is fantastic & was the perfect actor to play this crazy character, I can think of no one else who would play Fred in the same way, great performance. Bargain at 2.99, buy it, you'll love it.
