Yeah, that was just a bad idea. People like to trot out the fact that Freddy was originally supposed to be a child molester, but the studio (wisely, in my opinion) vetoed it.

Innocent Freddy could have worked, if written right. Especially if they let Haley let loose with the justified rage.

There were so many dumb choices in this movie. Some of them were laughable. One of my favorites was the Asian kid having a micronap and getting killed in the middle of recording his video blog ... and yet it somehow gets uploaded to his site.

Who the hell did that? His folks? "We ... we should upload the final video depicting his death. It's what he would have wanted."
