Movie Info

FRIENDED TO DEATH charts the extremes to which a desperate Facebook junkie will go in order to figure out who his true friends are. Laced with satire, this tongue-in-cheek bro-mantic comedy tells the story of obnoxious Los Angeles parking enforcement officer Michael Harris (Hansen). After being fired from his dream job and ditched by his best friend (McGowan), Michael begins to question whether anyone would care if he died. So with the help of his pushover ex-coworker Emile (Immekus), Michael does what any social media-obsessed loner would do: He fakes his death online to see who will show up at his funeral. In just hours, Michael's fake death post attracts a promising 22 'Likes.' Giddy and eager to milk the prank, Michael convinces Emile to help him stage a faux memorial service. But as plans start taking shape, Michael's reality gradually implodes, forcing him to reconsider what it means to be a "friend" in today's hyper-connected world of social media. (c) GreenStep

An overly broad and silly package whose one-joke, sitcom-like premise strains to fill feature length.

Movies have struggled to make social media cinematic, but judging from "Friended to Death," the revolution can wait.

The story's message may not be the most original one in the world - put down your device and make eye contact - but it's fun to watch it unfold in a world that, while far from realistic, feels real enough.

"Friended to Death" makes a labored point - that the Internet endangers actual intimacy - through a series of poorly conceived, rarely funny gags.

You can sense the director, Sarah Smick, gearing up to make a point. It proves rather obvious: Real connections are meaningful and too much Facebook is bad.

...a sly, yet extremely energetic wink at the dark side of our increasingly intrusive social media state of dependency...
