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.

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.

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

A comedy without laughs centred around the most excruciatingly annoying 'hero' ever to grace a cinema screen.

Even young fans of the online shorts will find the concept stretched perilously thin. And if your eardrums don't break, your spirit certainly will.

Kids may love this film - they're the target audience after all - but adults should stand well back.

If there's a more irritating film this year I'd hate to see it so close to this Nickelodeon TV movie.

Drop dead Fred. Seriously.

The slightly surreal, teen romance plot might have worked if the lead character wasn't so deeply, deeply irritating.

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.
