25th Anniversary!

(1991) dir Ate de Jong w/Phoebe Cates, Rik Mayall, Marsha Mason, Tim Matheson, Carrie Fisher [103 min; DCP]
Elizabeth (Cates), a depressed and repressed young woman, is at her wits end. Separated from her husband, out of a job, and under the thumb of her controlling mother, she just doesn’t know where to turn. Until, that is, she unwittingly reunites with her childhood imaginary friend, Drop Dead Fred (Mayall), who’s rude antics help her break out of the rut she finds herself in.

“I choose to believe in Drop Dead Fred.”
Deirdre Crimmins writes about DROP DEAD FRED for Brattle Film Notes
