Odd couples can be great movie subjects, if handled in a creative and intelligent manner, and there are plenty films in Hollywood which explore these relationships. A recent successful effort in this risky field is the original and funny "Fred & Vinnie," helmed by first-time film director and veteran TV producer Steve Skrovan.

The movie opens by telling us that "this is a pretty much true story," and we almost right away go to a hilarious scene in which Fred (Fred Stoller) is having a "romantic" dinner with a lady that tells him, "I hope no one sees me here with you. You drive like a pussy. Only a pussy signals when they are going to change lanes." Fred happens to be a lonely, struggling actor in Hollywood, whose closest friend, Vinnie (Angelo Tsarouchas), lives back east. Vinnie is overweight, and also happens to be a loner. They talk a lot by phone, and Vinnie enjoys listening to Fred real-life boring stories - he even records some of his phone messages. It is an amazing, yet weird friendship. One day, Vinnie decides to visit Fred in Hollywood, so that maybe he can find a job in show business. He arrives to Vinnie's apartment swearing that he was going to be "invisible" and that he was not going to be an inconvenience to Fred. Sadly, that is not the case, and Vinnie's daily habits slowly begin to annoy Fred, who lives a calm, structured life. Here, the movie moves to dark humor as these two fellows friendship is truly tested.

"Fred & Vinnie" will remind you about some friends that you have, and what you have to do to remain loyal and understanding. It really delves into the psychological and physical effects of relationships that are deteriorating, and it is based on the real-life friendship between Stoller and his late friend Vinnie D'Angelo (1947-2001).

It has LOL comedy, but the depth, sweetness and poignancy of the film stayed with me. An unexpected gem. I can't wait to get it and see it again.

Great movie! From the title, one could easily assume it is a lame and trite comedy. It is not. Instead, it is well-written, directed, and has excellent acting. There is genuine pathos and endearing characters. Buy it. Watch it. Enjoy it.

I found this to be a really touching and usual film. How often do you watch a film about middle aged men who live alone in simple apartments and struggle with loneliness and a sense of failure? How often do you watch a film about friendship between men. Answer is rarely and this one pulls it off with tenderness and humor. It's a great film.

If you are a fan of Fred Stoller you'll absolutely love this. I saw this guy on television in the 80's and was hooked.
Later I saw other guys who I thought ripped Fred Stoller off, but then he had a spot on the program.
I laugh every time I see this.

I only recently became a fan of Fred Stoller after listening to his excellent storytelling on a podcast. I figured that same quality would make this a decent movie to watch but it exceeded any expectation I had. I fell in love with this movie. To some, on the surface it may seem to be a story about unlikely roommates, but it is so much more about friendship, expectations, and the impact we have on those in our lives. There are moments captured in this movie that made me remember people and things Id forgotten; and moments I will remember for a long time to come.

Fred Stoller is a funny man but his best friend (in the movie) is not a very good actor and thus I couldn't get the depth of feeling that they were suppose to have for each other.
Fred has talked about Vinnie is his latest book and I was hoping to see what made their friendship so special but the movie feel short in delivering the feelings.
I'm still pulling for Fred and hope he still breaks into the Hollywood big time.
