Take this The Drop Dead Fred We’re Grown Ups Now So Piss Off shirt if you are a big fan of this film. The film’s popularity with the audience that found it on VHS was clearly evident enough for short-lived talk of a remake starring Russell Brand, who relished the prospect of playing a nastier “more Victorian” Fred in interviews while doing press rounds for his version of Arthur. The revamp was briefly dredged up again when Drop Dead Fred trended on Twitter on the sad day of Mayall’s passing, right alongside The Young Ones and Blackadder, but it seems safe to declare that remake dead (spelled “duh-eh-duh!”). It’s a good thing too, because Drop Dead Fred is a real curate’s egg – too weird and complex to simply tear apart and make better. It’s a post punk comedy in every sense and even if it’s not as universally well regarded as some films of its era that have already been remade, it has the same untouchable status for those who love it. As with so many true cult classics, it was utterly unmarketable, but that is not to say that it is unremarkable – not by any stretch of the imagination.
