Zach Galifianakis and Matthew Modine Would Like to Be Your Frenemy


Once upon a time, Gregory Dark’s “Frenemy” was called “Little Fish, Strange Pond”. I suppose someone with a suit and tie and a degree in marketing figured it would work better in a retail setting with a shorter title and a big ol’ picture of Zach Galifianakis on the cover of the DVD. Go figure. At any rate, the picture sounds interesting, particularly since someone once compared the production as a cross between Kevin Smith and David Lynch. Kevin Smith and David Lynch? I don’t know if I should be thoroughly horrified, deeply intrigued, or completely dumbfounded. After all, those are two names you don’t hear in the same sentence very often. At least in my world, anyway.

Here’s what “Frenemy” is all about:

After a group of friends witness a horrifying crime, they wonder how they were lucky enough to escape, unharmed, while one friend did not. Through this self-discovery they start to understand the meaning of their own hilarious yet twisted fate. As their time starts to run out, the chance at redemption isn’t too far behind.

“Frenemy”, starring Zach Galifianakis, Matthew Modine, Callum Blue, Paul Adelstein, and Adam Baldwin will finally hit retail shelves on December 14th. The trailer and some lousy artwork lie below.




About Todd Rigney

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.

    ‎”At any rate, the picture sounds interesting, particularly since someone once compared the production as a cross between Kevin Smith and David Lynch.” Once upon a time it was just that:)

    so theres no review here. waste of time. marking this site on the block list

    That synopsis bears no resemblance to the painful piece of crap I had to endure. They aren’t friends – they don’t know each other. The word hilarious has never been so misapplied. The only interest this film has is in how it so clearly demonstrates the marketing ploys of those faceless ones who use any means to sell a movie they’ve never watched. A poor attempt to emulate David Lynch and Kevin Smith and does not make it a ‘cross’.

    It’s true; the description on the back of the casing must have been for another movie. There is no group, there are no friends, several horrifying crimes, and no “one friend” who didn’t make it (there being no friends). There is some pithy dialogue and ten minutes of Zack G. It’s a strange movie, but you wouldn’t think of Lynch, Smith, or Tarantino while watching– maybe somebody’s film school final.

    I, for one, liked the movie. It’s quite strange, and has nothing to do with a “zack-hangover-dude” movie… But that’s something that hangs entirely on the marketing people… Rhe thing is, I watched it without the expectations that someone that has read that “review” may have… The cover doesn’t help either. But if you watch it knowing that, you can find it interesting, and even entertaining as I did.
