The line "Hey it's Fred!" only goes so far. And to have it in a 84 minute movie is sickening
25 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is clear Nickelodeon is proud to have Fred on their network. He's been in episodes of the popular kid's show iCarly, he has his own film, and Nick is even talking about a franchise and a sequel to go along with the movie. So it's pretty clear Nickelodeon thinks they've invested in a goldmine, but when truthfully, no one is laughing. Everyone sits with a dry expression on their face watching this overly energetic kid bounce around like he's on super marijuana or he just took one hundred pills to keep you awake. It's dreadful to watch the title character try to do Comedy when really nothing he does gets a chuckle.

For a good amount of time, I stated Diary of a Wimpy Kid was the worst film to come out of 2010. It's childish humor and kiddy approach on every topic it touched on made a teenager like me cringe at the jokes for the movie. To my astonishment, Fred: The Movie is somehow worse than Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Not only does it not follow his videos (in the video's from what I've seen he claims he's six, but in this he's fifteen), but his voice gets incredibly aggravating to listen to for 84 minutes. It would be different if what he was saying was funny and hit relevance, but instead it's like a bad Improv Comedy skit that drags on for the longest time possible.

The plot, if you can call it that, is Fred (Lucas Cruikshank), an over-hyped, fourth wall breaking, high pitch fifteen year old finds out that the love of his life, Judy (Pixie Lott) is moving and he plans to take a cross-country road trip to find her. Much to his surprise she only lives a few blocks away, but he packs like he's on The Amazing Race while trying to avoid obstacles like the school bully Kevin (Jake Weary). When he does find Judy's house he finds out she's having a party but he wasn't invited. Infuriated, he decides to throw his own party and giving everyone "dis-invitations" and only inviting Bertha (Jennette McCurdy) the school goth.

The movie is all one big sugar rush and it's high off of it's own medicine. The jokes are so tame and packed with five year old one liners that rank up with toilet humor. I also find somethings funny like the mom being almost inappropriate for the film. In the web-show, Fred's mom's voice is only heard so many times. When seeing her in this she looks like a rag-picker or a tramp. She wears cleavage revealing outfits and appears to be drunk half the time. The film was filed under the "TV-G" rating, but having this character in it should certify it has "TV-PG" at least.

I also find it incredibly annoying when Fred talks to the camera as if we don't understand what's going on. Breaking the fourth wall is common for movies to do, especially kid movies. Sometimes having an on screen narrator works in the movies favor. But the characters shouldn't know they are putting on a show. They should act natural and not try to impress us by showing off speaking skills. Just do what the script says, you don't need to announce it, we can see whats going on.

Why the character Fred needed his own movie is plain obvious. Nickelodeon has lost gems like Kenan & Kel, All That, and The Amanda Show. Now it's only hope is to cash in on a web celebrity whom I will bet no employee for Nickelodeon find amusing. All they wanted to say was "I have the rights to Fred". Thats why they took him. I don't watch too many Youtube celebrities as I like to support independent, not as popular users because my philosophy is why help out a celebrity that doesn't need it? Why subscribe to Fred if he already has over one million subscribers? That would be like sending Brittney Spears a couple hundred bucks in the mail. Why? The saddest thing about this movie is he is getting paid for something anybody could do. He talks fast and puts the speed and pitch of his voice faster. Thats all he does. If someone could get famous for doing something as simple as that we all should be getting paid. I put more effort in my videos coming up with a topic and stating my true feelings on an issue while Fred sits back, acting like an idiot in his videos, talking about a fictional family with a voice pitch to make your eardrums disintegrate. But if he's getting paid for doing something as simple as that, more power to him. Somebody just better tell him he's got no work planned in future years. He may be set for life. But when he hits his 20's or 30's he'll be long gone. While I'm not acting Cruikshank and actually respect him for getting paid for doing something simplistic, I'm just warning him the future doesn't look so bright.

Starring: Lucas Cruikshank, Pixie Lott, Jake Weary, Jennette McCurdy, Siobhan Fallon Hogan, and John Cena. Directed by Clay Weiner.
