This film won five Razzies, including worst picture, worst actor and worst director. Tom Green showed up to the ceremony to pick up his awards.
Filming was interrupted by an irate hot dog seller who refused to move his cart out of the way. He eventually moved for $2,000 (a check that was later cancelled!).
When originally rated NC-17 by the MPAA, Tom Green replied, "That's like, porn - with murder."
The footage of surgery Freddy is watching when the cop and therapist come to his door is actual footage of surgery Tom Green underwent to remove a lymph node due to testicular cancer.
The French title, "Va the faire foutre Freddy!" translates as "Go fuck yourself Freddy!" in English.
Tom Green performed most of his own stunts, including the skate boarding scenes and the house scene. The studio was against him doing any of the stunts because if anything happened to him, they'd lose the lead actor AND director.
When we first see Freddy sitting with the other kids in the institution, the movie they are watching is The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974).

The whole idea of the "cheese sandwiches" is from a sketch on _The Tom Green Show (1999) (TV Series)_, when he met an old couple in the park and acted really nice to them and asked them for a cheese sandwich that they were eating. After he walked away from them, he started talking to the camera saying "Who the hell eats cheese sandwiches?, I mean there's salads and meat? Cheese sandwiches!"

A scene where Stephen Tobolowsky played Tom's uncle at the cheese factory was cut from the movie. His uncle introduces him to the factory and they pay homage to _"I Love Lucy (TV Series 1951-1957)"_ by doing a gag making cheese sandwiches.
