A young woman who's attempting to find her place in the world battles with her controlling mother and a womanizing husband finds comfort and confusion with the appearance of her childhood friend. It is a zappy movie that emphasizes self-actualization. Written by
Just after Elizabeth's mother seals the box which Drop Dead Fred is in, a yellow tape-marker on the floor can be seen to the left of the marble-topped table and a blue one can be seen to the right. See more »
And the prince took the beautiful young girl in his arms and said, will you marry me? Yes, she whispered, I will be your princess.
Did they live happily ever after?
Of course, Elizabeth.
[tucking her in]
How do you know?
Because she was a good little girl. If she had been naughty, the prince would have run away.
What a pile of shit!

All the people who denigrate this movie are dead inside.
I am disgusted by the degree to which I see this movie denigrated among the user comments here on imdb.com. Instead of pointlessly hypothesizing about the dullness and pointlessness that most likely constitute your personal lives, I choose to take the high road, and merely state that Drop Dead Fred will make you laugh, cry, and question nearly everything about your life...if you listen to it. If you haven't seen it...go and watch it! If you have seen it, and you don't like it...watch it again, and pay attention this time! And lighten up!
And if you have seen it, and love it like I do (and like all self-respecting human beings do), then go watch it again, and have some fun!
