WTF Is This?
FRIENDED TO DEATH (2014) charts the extremes to which a desperate Facebook junkie will go in order to figure out who his true friends are. Laced with satire, this tongue-in-cheek bro-mantic comedy tells the story of obnoxious Los Angeles parking enforcement officer Michael Harris (Hansen). After being fired from his dream job and ditched by his best friend (McGowan), Michael begins to question whether anyone would care if he died. So with the help of his pushover ex-coworker Emile (Immekus), Michael does what any social media-obsessed loner would do: He fakes his death online to see who will show up at his funeral. In just hours, Michael’s fake death post attracts a promising 22 ‘Likes.’ Giddy and eager to milk the prank, Michael convinces Emile to help him stage a faux memorial service. But as plans start taking shape, Michael’s reality gradually implodes, forcing him to reconsider what it means to be a “friend” in today’s hyper-connected world of social media.
Friended To Death (2014) stars Ryan Hansen, James Immekus, Zach McGowan, Sarah Smick, Ian Michaels, Richard Riehle, Angela Bullock and Bobby Ray Shafer. Written by Sarah Smick and Ian Michaels. Directed by Sarah Smick.
