Storyline

Freddie Moreno is a young, successful chef who owns his own Italian restaurant in Chicago. He generously shares his luxurious apartment with three female generations of family: his niece, sister-in-law and domineering, still very Puerto Rican grandmother. They all often abuse his good nature, financially and otherwise, without showing him the respect and gratitude he deserves, and so does his practically in-living best friend, Chris, who attracts trouble.

It really tries
1 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

As have I. I really like Freddie but I just can't get into it. His comedy is very forced and unnatural. He seems awkward. He is best in his scenes with Brian Austin Green (who is hilarious all on his own). The sister is a bad actress delivering dumb lines. The blonde lush is pretty funny but one-dimensional. They should give her and Green the show and let them lead. Freddie's grandmother is just painful. Whether you understand Spanish or not, she obviously understands English as she responds accurately to the other characters, but can't seem to speak a word. Odd. Basically, if Freddie loosened up, expands the Chris and Allison roles and dumps the rest of them for a stronger group, it might stand a chance. Freddie and Brian might want to throw on a pair of flip-flops and a tanktop now and then for some eye-candy. But as it is now ... suffice it to say that good comedy should seem effortless and "Freddie" seems anything but.
