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. That was so alone!

The acting is very good but the story amazingly painful and unfunny., 24 July 2015
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

"Fred & Vinnie" is a very strange film and I can honestly say I've never seen anything like it...and this is much of why I gave the movie a 6 and not a lower score. However, I should warn you that although it's listed as a comedy, it's really least not in a traditional sense. It's actually quite tragic and unfunny-- especially when you realize that the film is based on true people!

Fred Stoller plays himself in the film. He's a lonely single guy struggling in Hollywood and one day he makes a huge mistake--he invites his friend Vinnie to move in with him. It turns out Vinnie is one of the most annoying people on Earth and he's also chronically unemployed and a moocher. After a while, it becomes obvious that Fred has inherited Vinnie---and getting rid of the pathetic guy will be practically impossible.

Had the film NOT been based on a real person and had the film NOT had such a downbeat ending, I would have enjoyed it more. Instead, it left me feeling depressed and a bit like a voyeur who SHOULDN'T have been watching these folks. Mental illness and personality disorders are not particularly the stuff of comedies! Hard to watch at times though the acting was quite nice. I wouldn't mind seeing more from these folks but I would recommend that they try infusing some more energy and watchability into future projects.
