Never Been Thawed

Rated NR 2005

The framework of director Sean Anders' debut feature is a convention for young losers who obsessively collect frozen TV dinners and hold meetings to discuss them. This is the kind of movie that will be compared relentlessly with the mockumentaries of Christopher Guest (Best in Show), because it's set up as a film-within-a-film about people with a wacky hobby, and because it's deeply irreverent about nearly everything it touches. But the characters here are even more archetypal than Guest's, and more amusing too. The beauty in this deeply derisive and wildly funny comedy is in its details -- like the graphics on the limited-edition Gene Simmons TV dinner (flavor: Beef Tongue) or the parade of fake magazine covers that litter the film. Anyone who's ever trolled eBay in search of something weird to complete an arcane collection of American ephemera will love it, and anyone who's had enough of post-PC etiquette will revel in its snarky send-up of all things sacred.
