It has probably been over 15 years since I last watched the film, but for reasons I am unable to explain, I was drawn to watching Drop Dead Fred.

I loved this movie as a kid. It was rude, funny, childish and very silly. Would I still enjoy it, now that I am an (apparently) mature 37 year old, with such responsibilities as a wife, job, mortgage and house rabbit?

In the words of Simon Cowell, “I didn’t like it. I loved it!”. Although, when he uses that phrase, he is normally referring to some God-awful music act and not, as I am doing, describing one of the greatest cult films of a generation.

I enjoyed reacquainting myself with Fred so much, that I even got hold of a BluRay copy and watched the whole thing again, with directors commentary.

Finally, if you are wondering what the significance of the blog title “Cobwebs” is, you clearly haven’t seen the movie. Anyone who has, will never forget…

RIP Rik Mayall

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
