The film's a 12A because it contains "behaviour that would be dangerous if copied". Quite right, too. If I ever see anyone acting like Fred, I'll probably loose off a shotgun at them.

He's insane! He's irrepressible! It's like a bad dream you keep hoping will stop.

There is one sort-of reasonable joke about the Marriott hotel. Otherwise this is one to miss.

Fred is a withering, unerringly precise satirical pastiche of the me-first 'American Idol' generation. The only question is why an audience would choose to spend 83 minutes with him.

If the only Freds you are aware of are Astaire or Flintstone then I'm afraid that Fred: The Movie will come as a terrible shock.

One of the most grating children's films in recent memory.

Audience Reviews for Fred: The Movie

I could not tolerate the so called youtube videos.But when I heard that there's a film based on them, I thought how could you make a movie based on a terrible 5 minute video? And the film is just like the videos, absolutely terrible. Since the film was given a 12A, it was inevitable to accept the fact that its target audience couldn't go see the film alone, which explains its failure at the box office. The film is based on Fred going after his girlfriend and is help by his supposed father, who doesn't exist. The jokes were appalling as they would be either not funny or could only make sense to children who actually watch Fred. Regardless about how Fred the movie would never be a success,it may please those who watch his videos. A low budget, which it never reached. Hardly humorous jokes. This film was a very big mistake, it was probably better to have stayed with the videos, which were bad enough already. Fred the movie is a warning to those making movies based on youtube videos.

Super Reviewer wow..... I thought I had seen the worst of movies this year, heck i thought I had seen the worst of Fred on YouTube.... But this???? Words cannot describe this abomination of a movie. It makes Fred on YouTube look like a masterpiece! This movie should be destroyed at ALL costs. Don't watch it, don't steal it, don't watch for free, don't even look at the box that incases that awful movie!

What a waste of time! We can sit through Fred's YouTube videos because they're usually 2-3 minutes long but not through an entire 82-minute film with him! Fred gets critiscized for being annoying. Well, that's the point of his character. His videos are not hilarious but they deliver a few chuckles. This movie is not funny. Lucas Cruikshank didn't write the script. If he at least co-wrote the movie, the film could've been slighly better. The premise is just horrible and poorly conceived. Cruikshank is not a Hollywood actor. He's just a guy who knows how to act in front of a camera and act annoyingly. The dude who played Kevin was obnoxious and Pixie Lott's performance as Fred's love intrest, Judy, was terrible. Megan Fox could've been better. iCarly's Jeanette McCurdy added no feeling into her character, Bertha. Her character is supposed to be the weird goth punk girl who talks quietly but she could've been better. John Cena didn't make the movie better either. This was originally intended for a theatrical release but instead went to TV. This could have been an EPIC FAIL if it went to the theatre. Critics would've bashed it and it would be a HUGE FLOP!!! Kinda of glad Nickelodeon picked up the film. Whether you watch it on TV or some other way, the viewing experience would still suck. Five minutes into the film and you already want it to end. Suprisingly, we sat through the entire thing. If you're looking for a film with an annoying, immature, childish protagonist, we suggest Pee-Wee's Big Adventure.
