Never Been Thawed



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

Critic Reviews for Never Been Thawed

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (13)

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.

Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

Wickedly funny and subversive.

Top Critic

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.

Painfully unfunny.

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

Audience Reviews for Never Been Thawed


Wow, maybe the 2nd best non-Christopher Guest mockumentary. (The best being The Grand.) Well developed characters by a bunch of faces I did not recognize. Great Job!


Most people would not make it past the first 15 minutes. This movie is very low budget with mediocre acting skills. It's also the type of movie that if you stick it out, you forgive it's faults and (I hate to say it) your standards are lowered and you REALLY have fun with the movie.

The main character of this film is also a graphic designer. A lot of his work is noticeable in the movie.

The gags are very easy but I got a good laugh every now and then. It needs polishing but it's a great effort.
