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
This movie looks incredibly cheap and I'm sure it is, but don't let that ruin your experience. The characters come off as being likable and endearing. The comedy shows through even though there are no laugh out loud moments. The story is weak but at the same time, it's clever, witty and relies on the character development to carry it through.
The main character is dealing with issues everyone has thought of in real life in a satirized manner. His girl friend is cheating on him with his alter ego (there's the title). His friend (also a super hero) is on a mission to create a purpose for super heroes again since all super villains have been caught. Our main hero meets a hot motel clerk that, after some effort to talk to, seems to like him for who he really is. That's the most of what happens. I'm not going to ruin it.
No one is going to win any awards for this movie but I was surprised at how enjoyable it was and can recommend it to others.
