We luv icarly, Big Time Rush, Fresh Beat Band and other Nick and Nick Jr shows.
This is the worst movie ever and a VERY bad influence on kids. We are very open with our kids, but this movie portrays Fred as a kid who is a jerk, stalk other kids, lie, scream, tear up their houses, play with swear words and is all around a loser.
Basically, Fred stalks and obsesses about his neighbor Judy. When she moves, he screams and tears up his house. He plays with swear words (xammit becomes gammit) way too much. He eventually packs a bag and tracks her down where he crashes a party she is having. Fred is not invited but he busts in anyway. He vomits on Judy and the other kids laugh at him, which they should. He then decides to have a party and not invite anyone else. Eventually, Judy shows up at his door and tells him she should have invited him to her party.
Fred is really dysfunctional and creepy. We had to explain to our kids (ages 6 and 9) that if they acted like Fred in multiple scenes, we would spank them and give them a time out. Was not even funny, just a lot of fast switching scenes.
I recommend seeing it so you can send a note to Nick and Nick JR and ask them to not make another Fred movie again. Even my kids kept asking why is he so wierd. My 9 yr old daughter, who likes all shows, said she did not like this. My 6 yr old said it is a tiny bit funny, but too wierd and he erased it on the DVR, which he never does.
It does not make sense that Fred spun off of such a great show like iCarly. In iCarly, I saw friends humor as funny and whimsical. In Fred the Movie, he went the other way into the realm of those weird kids who get picked on and eventually lash out at society in a very negative way.
