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 Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Worst Movie I've seen this year (alongside Dude Where's My Car)
26 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

To fellow followers of IMDB, Last night, my friends and I saw Freddy Got Fingered and I must say I left the theatre in aw. . . aw for the lack of any point this movie had. I am a fan of Tom Green and enjoyed everything that he has done to date including his small cameo in Charlie's Angels ("Is it the Mitch?"). However, last night's debacle was a disaster for the cinematic art. I am not turned off by gross-out humor. However, the gross-out humor used in this movie was not very humorous. Maybe, in thought, the ideas behind some of the things were funny. When I was trying to explain some of them to my brother, I even chuckled; but, I was not chuckling in the theatre. Certain moments like jerking off horses would be fine if it had anything to do with the movie plot (which was non-existent). In the future, things like that should stay on the small screen and, at least, there these moments would be funny just because it's the Tom. I think that if Tom Green is to go on making films, he should consult other opinions first. Road Trip was funny; freddy is not. Be warned!
