Pokes fun at the obsessive personalities that make up peculiar American subcultures, but misses its targets too often to be more than merely passable.

Movie Info

Shawn has been collecting frozen dinners since he was twelve. Today he works part-time as a dental hygienist to cover the cost of operating fourteen full-sized freezers in a one bedroom apartment. Shawn is the founder of the Mesa Frozen Entrée Enthusiasts' Club, a small group of fanatical collectors determined to host the world's first Frozen Entrée Enthusiasts' Convention. Shelly became infatuated with Shawn and joined the club after seeing him sing with his band. In a shameless bid for money

What we're left with is a movie filled with cultural gags that mock without achieving the level of good satire. Sometimes, alas, being funny just isn't enough.

Never Been Thawed displays moments of cleverness but not enough to sustain its feature-length running time.

Wickedly funny and subversive.

Never Been Thawed has no stylistic flair and little forward momentum, yet nearly every scene contains an amusing bit of business, much of it off to the side of the main action.

Satire requires a lighter touch and less reliance on vulgar language for shock effect.

You've heard about geeks who collect all sorts of weird things, but frozen TV dinners?

The jokes are all the same joke, and it wears thin over the course of 80 minutes.

This is an often hilarious and painfully on-target mockumentary about people who are pulled into special interest cults like "Star Trek" or, in this case, frozen entree fandom.

Mark Leeper's Reviews

When the film works, it works well, and there should be enough novel material to satisfy fans of the mockumentary subgenre.

It's just hilarious enough to overcome its limitations -- and even, occasionally, make them part of its unforgiving worldview.

October 14, 2005
Los Angeles Daily News

The Hungry Man deluxe of frozen entree mocumentaries, Anders and LeVinus break the seal on freshness with the sleeper slacker comedy of the year.

Monsters and Critics

Think twice before sampling this lukewarm fare.

Like a torturously long, slapdash joke delivered by a snarky Sunday school student determined to piss off his devout elders.

NBT: Never Been Thawed works your funny bone like a speed bag for its entire 87-minute running time.
