Gordon, 28, an aspiring animator, leaves his home in Oregon to sell his ideas to Hollywood. After being told, correctly, that they are quite possibly the most stupid ideas ever and that he needs to spend time rethinking them, he moves back home. But his father, never a kind man, escalates his mean treatment of his rather unconventional son. Meanwhile, Gord has fallen for Betty, an attractive doctor at the hospital where his friend is staying; she happens to use a wheelchair, and to delight in having her paralyzed legs beaten with a bamboo cane; her sexual aggression intimidates him. Gord's family goes to a psychiatrist, and he lies to her that his father molests Gord's brother, Freddy; Gord neglects to mention that Freddy is 25. Soon, Gordon has the house to himself, and comes up with a winning animated series, "Zebras in America" based on his own family. All this is really a framework on which Tom Green hangs his usual crazy stunts. Written by

I'm the type of person who can laugh at almost anything. I love going to slapstick comedy movies for some relaxation and mindless humor. I can even handle the crudest scenes out there, but this was anything but funny. There were a couple parts that I laughed at, but I spent the rest of the time wondering how such a bad movie could have ever gotten this far. I've seen Tom Green provide some funny performances in the past, but this wasn't one of them. I can only wonder what in the world he was thinking when he made this movie. I went there for some light-hearted laughter, but I really didn't get it. The best word I can use to describe this flick is "disturbing" All in all it was one of the worst movies I've seen in a long time if not ever.
