The Fab Fred Four

>> Sunday, January 18, 2009

When one mentions the name Fred Savage many things come to mind- theatrical genius? hot stud? Winnie Cooper? Sure you may remember him from the hit show The Wonder Years where Fred played Kevin, the youngest son of the Arnold clan but really Fred's true talent has shown through in the few fine films he put forth in the late 80's (and in one case, the 90's).
As a former member of the Fred Savage fan club and an owner and avid reader of Fred Savage:Totally Awesome, the fab fan book, I can tell you that these films truly define this masterful actors' career.
If you've missed any of these gems please put them on your netflix cue and feel free to message me if you need any exclusive information on Fred (favorite color: blue, favorite food: macaroni and cheese...) The following is the list of my favorite 4 Fred films (and one honorable mention) with these things kept in mind: the movie plot itself, freds performance and fred's actual screentime. Enjoy!

1. The Wizard



2. Little Monsters



3. The Princess Bride



4. Austin Powers in Goldmember





*Honorable mention: The Boy Who Could Fly
