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>

Why?
15 November 2003 | by (Kansas City, MO) – See all my reviews

I have many chances to catch this 'film' on cable. I have had many times where I tried to sit through the entire film. In all of my attempts to watch this, I have to say this: this is positively the worst film that I have ever laid my eyes on. Considering that I've seen PLAN NINE FROM OUTER SPACE, GLEN OR GLENDA, and Bob Guccione's CALIGULA--that's saying a lot.

There are many vignettes in FREDDIE GOT FINGERED that I'm still trying to flush out of my head. The most odious is when Gordo births a baby, bites through the umbilical cord and whirls it around the hospital woman.

From all of the things that went on during the production and during the time when some studio exec green-lighted the movie, I wonder about one thing: did anybody think that this was funny?

You know---I'm not being entirely truthful. There was one moment that amused me. It was when the studio exec played by Anthony Michael Hall commented to Goldo about his drawings: "You see what I mean...Doesn't make any sense....pretty f**king stupid..."

Why?

Because it summed up the entire film....
