Never Been Thawed (2005)
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
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.
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.
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!
A locally made movie that's pretty funny for the first half-hour or so. Unfortunately, the movie is 90 minute long, and the rest of it plays out like an episode of Family Guy: joke about a gay guy, joke about a deaf guy, unfunny attempt at a joke that gets dragged out until the end of days but still never manages to become funny.
not for everyone, for sure, but....(at first) deals with the PSYCHOSIS behind collecting, hoarding, and other ocd-like behaviors through satire, and is actually pretty effective and funny. anyone who comments on the "acting" and such doesn't really get the point. the main problem with it is that it quickly segues into so many other things---hypocrisy, bias, and the often fucked up nature of human thought patterns and behavior. needed to either be a cable series, or far more focused.
