Which of these Drop Dead Fred quotes is your favorite?

While it didn’t do very well at the box office (or with critics), fans loved it!

Despite not being the best movie ever made, it is full of interesting facts!

They offered Tim Burton the director role, while they offered Robin Williams the role of “Fred.”

They turned the project down, but I could see a movie like this being made for them, and it would have likely been a much better version.

The movie was filmed in Minneapolis, but what is even cooler is that a large part of Drop Dead Fred was filmed at Prince’s Paisley Park Studios!

It’s rumored that Prince used to visit the set each evening once filming had stopped for the day to mess around and admire the costumes and props.

I could envision that too!
