Storyline

A company that produces a toxic chemical tries to improve its image via a popular spokesperson, Ricky Coogan. Ricky travels to South America to get a first-hand look at the chemical's effects and finds himself at a mutant freak farm. Elijah, who runs the farm, is only too happy to have new subjects on which to try his freak machine. The very chemical that Ricky is supposed to promote is the one responsible for creating the great variety of freaks. Written by Christine Sai-Halasz <sai@mit.edu>

Funniest movie I have ever seen
9 July 2000 | by jason-238See all my reviews

"Freaked!" is undoubtedly the funniest unknown movie of all time. It could possibly be my all time favorite comedy, and I've seen a lot of them. It is a classic at the house I live in with three other college students; we've watched it countless times and can recite entire scenes from memory.

I can't even begin to name all of the hilarious gags in this film. Stuey falling out of the plane, the "13 milkmen" bit, and the macaroons scene are just the tip of the iceberg. I've probably watched this movie 20 times and I still catch something new every now and then. Usually, a film that squeezes as many gags as possible into every scene ends up with several horribly unfunny jokes. With Freaked, however, this simply isn't the case. I can count all of the jokes that I find even remotely unfunny on one hand.

Seeing Freaked always makes me wonder what Alex Winter is up to now. It's really a shame that he doesn't have movie studios lining up to get him to make more films. There are also great performances from Randy Quaid, Michael Stoyanov, William Sadler, and Megan Ward of "PCU".

If you haven't seen "Freaked", give it a rent (or better yet, buy it online), invite a few friends over, and get ready to laugh. Hard.
