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

Tom Greens Highly Anticipated First Starring Role Delivers Crap
This movie came out at about the height of tom greens popularity. I used to watch his show religiously and always thought that tom had a unique take on comedy. I rented this shortly after it came out on video expecting big things from green. Instead he used in plot so oversimplified and cliche that a small child would find it immature. And instead of trying to bring something new to the screen comically green attempts to recycle successful and controversial parts of his show. If you spend even a penny to see this movie you're being ripped off.
