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>

"zzzzzz.... is it over yet?" - typical "Freddy" screening
20 April 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

At about 10 minutes into this film, I realized that I had seen all that I needed to see to get a clear picture of its worth. After those 10 minutes, everything that followed failed to involve me in any way. I didn't laugh. I wasn't shocked. I wasn't angered by the audacious depravity of Tom Green's antics.

Why?

Because Tom Green is only funny (or shocking, or anger inducing) when his material is freewheeling, unscripted mayhem upon unsuspecting good ol' folk. For these elements, I enjoy his TV show immensly, both vicariously and intellectually.

This movie has none of those elements. It's a vacuum. It plays out like one of those hyperactive, annoying 2nd graders who will try anything to get your attention. For 90 minutes, it's like the screen is screaming "Hey look at me! I'm being naughty!!" Big deal.

This movie must have looked great on paper. It might have even worked had it been broken up into segments for his television program. But now I know its all scripted. And now I wonder if it all had been scripted before. If it wasn't, the joke is (still) on the unsuspecting masses. If it was, however, then the joke is on Tom Green.
