A young woman who's attempting to find her place in the world battles with her controlling mother and a womanizing husband finds comfort and confusion with the appearance of her childhood friend. It is a zappy movie that emphasizes self-actualization.Written by
According to director Ate De Jong on the Blu-ray commentary, there was a take when Janie first encounters Drop Dead Fred, where Carrie Fisher improvised the line "May The Force Be With You" as an obvious reference to Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977). The take was cut to avoid legal issues with both George Lucas and 20th Century Fox. See more »

And the prince took the beautiful young girl in his arms and said, will you marry me? Yes, she whispered, I will be your princess.
Did they live happily ever after?
Of course, Elizabeth.
[tucking her in]
How do you know?
Because she was a good little girl. If she had been naughty, the prince would have run away.
What a pile of shit!

This movie is a CLASSIC film about the relationship children have with their imaginary friends...even if when they're grown up the friends come back. If you think about it, she WASN'T HAPPY! She was lonely! What do little kids do when they aren't happy or lonely? They make up friends that come to their rescue and make them happy again. Some times, even as adults, a person needs to make up their friends to feel loved and good again. Trust me, I know! I'm 17 years old and STILL have imaginary friends. This movie is great! I have been watching it since it first came out and it just gets better and better each time I watch it! Who ever doesn't like this movie either A) has no funny bone...or B) is...and I quote Fred, "A Mega Beast!" who should "P*** off!"
