Synopsis

Friended to Death

Friended to Death   An obnoxious meter maid and social media junkie, Michael fakes his own death to see which of his many friends will attend his funeral.

A dark comedy about a social media junkie who fakes his own death via social media just to see which of his “friends” will show up to the funeral.

I didn’t even make it through the first hour of this terribly constructed attempt at comedy.

While the subject matter is relevant,

I was expecting far more in depth exploration of how social medias such as Facebook negatively affect daily lives and overly complicate culture as we know it.

Instead we get a cartoon, and a bad one.

The plot and character acting is purposely immature and painful to sit through.

The first ten minutes walks us through the life of Michael Harris (Ryan Hanson) who works as a meter-maid, zealously writing throngs of parking tickets while updating his Facebook account several times an hour with lightening speed.

Michael discovers no one really cares about his chronic postings and decides to fake his own demise to see what would happen.

That’s as good as it gets. All that follows is insufferably silly without being funny.

In a dramatic context, that kind of idea for a movie potentially could have produced something infinitely more entertaining and thought provoking then this.
