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

User Reviews

it was okay but a little boring. Not a comedy.
25 May 2014 | by reaseltbimSee all my reviews

I think the movie had some interesting ideas, I liked that it dealt with secret identities, it dealt with friendship, and they even had a mystery in the story. I also liked all the actors in this.

Sadly the problem is that it takes too long to get going. I did not laugh once. I wish this was made as a serious movie and not a comedy because sometimes when it was dragging a lot it was because of the attempts at comedy. Seems like if you tried to take out the "funny" parts, the movie would only be half as long. They should have developed the characters more, or explore their back stories more as well, You don't really know anything about these guys.

They had an interesting concept and some pretty good ideas but that gets lost on the way. I don't understand why it says it is a comedy.
