“Iu0026#39;m mystified at why some people consider this film u0026quot;mediocreu0026quot;. Yes, Fred is an annoying ass, but the story requires him to be this way. I think those who u0026quot;getu0026quot; this film understand the complexities of the filmu0026#39;s premise, retreat into fantasy isnu0026#39;t healthy but sometimes itu0026#39;s the only refuge a person has, Fred is as destructive as he is supportive but every annoying action requires the Phoebe Cates character to strengthen her own boundaries and sense of purpose.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOkay, I donu0026#39;t want to sound like Doctor Joyce Brothers, just find it ironic that what some people donu0026#39;t like about this film is what distinguishes it from the usual Hollywood bull***t, Fred isnu0026#39;t cute and cuddly, that would have been false, imagine Robin Williams as Fred…that film would be a complete waste of time.”
