Storyline

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>

Calling this film GARBAGE is an understatement
30 January 2004 | by (Baltimore) – See all my reviews

My Rating: 1/2 out of ****.

When Freddy Got Fingered came out it was consistently bashed by every critic. So one day I decided to check out Freddy Got Fingered on HBO. What a big F*ckin mistake that was. What a waste of film, money, and my time. I cannot see what anyone sees in this piece of crap.

Before Freddy Got Fingered I did not hate Tom Green. In fact, I thought he was funny in Road Trip. So what drugs did he take to come up with this film? Green is the writer/director, and star of the film. It is actually rather easy to say which one he does the worst job at.

Green's direction actually means nothing in the film, but it is rather blandly directed. Even though, Green's direction is lackluster it is unlikely that even an accomplished director could turn this into something worthwhile.

Arguably, Green's worst job is that of a writer. The plot is meaningless in this film. It is just there for Green to do some stupid things that we are supposed to think is funny. How in the hell can people find this funny? Jacking off an Elephant? Biting an umbilical cord? Walking around with a deer carcass on? These are excruciatingly unfunny and stupid.

The acting is nothing good. Rip Torn and Drew Barrymore are so incredibly over the top that its almost funny(almost but not quite). Julie Hagerty is completely forgettable (thats more of a good thing).

Two things are worth mentioning in this s***hole of a film. First, Tom Green running around screaming in a building. Its just random but it is amusing. Also, someone mentioned an Apocalypse Now reference. I saw that and thought it was kind of clever. However, thats about two minutes in an 87 minute film. Freddy Got Fingered is a disaster and will rank as one of the worst films of all time.
