Quotes

Darlene: I'm sorry, can I say something? I love eating alone! It's fun! You know what I did last winter? I went on vacation all by myself to the Bahamas. I loved the feeling of not being tied to anyone else.
Fred: Yeah, that's 'cause you're very attractive and to you, being alone is a fun novelty. This book could never be for you. You don't know what it's like to really be alone. Oh, don't tell me, one time you were stuck at an airport. It was your birthday and you had to talk to your boyfriend on your phone....

Fred Stoller - funny, real, and a real story teller.
15 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had no idea that I was in for such a special film. Fred & Vinnie was heartwarming and reminded me of a time in my own life. I laughed and cried. Cliché but true.

The story was so authentic that it really impressed me. At no time during that film did I ever feel like I was watching a joke. The whole time I knew I was seeing something real. The acting was wonderful, comic timing - completely believable. Editing was perfect.

The use of lighting and color was inspirational. The way the movie transports you through time and makes you feel as uncomfortable as the star does while laughing through tears was absolutely magical.

I really enjoyed this film.
