Storyline

Brendan, a.k.a. the instant ice-forming superhero Fridge, has become jealous of himself over his steady girlfriend Emily's preference for sleeping with posturing Fridge over whiny geek Brendan. Superhero buddy C-Thru would like Brendan to get it together, get out of his Fridge tights and have a good wash. With superheroes in public disfavor and government subsidizing being pulled, its a sad day when they have to haul in Shrink, the last known and captured supervillain. Waiting for nightfall when Shrink can be transported from their motel room, Brendan runs across Claudel, the motel manager who dislikes superheroes, and Jimmy, an embittered cop who can turn invisible for only a few seconds. As Brendan and Claudel start to connect, Brendan discovers a set-up that puts his future, freedom and good name in jeopardy. Written by statmanjeff

The worse movie ever
25 September 2012 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

well, I am not anyone with special taste, I will even like a movie that some people will say is under average, but this movie is plain boring, slow annoying with cheap effects. if you really have free time and don't mind spending it, I would suggest staring at a wall as more enjoyable activity than watching this film. The movie start slow. looks like it had a $100 budget looks like it had a $50 script and unfortunately the girl there plays well, just really shouldn't have been on that file doesn't matter how talented the actors might be,

this film can even kill an A list stars so in 4 words STAY AWAY FROM IT!!!
