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>

More Fun Than Dying! (Not a guarantee)
10 May 2001 | by BabemagnytSee all my reviews

I have seen many movies. Furthermore, I have seen many bad movies. Many atrocious movies. Many horrible, horrible, horrible movies. Though, I truly believe that not one holds a candle to the waste of film that is Freddy Got Fingered.

Now, you're probably thinking: "This guy's a turd." Well, I loved Airplane!, Naked Gun, Scary Movie, South Park, etc. These films had what we call jokes. There are two things I liked about Freddy Got Fingered: Nothing. Nothing at all. I saw people around me laughing as a grown man's knee cap was cracked and created a bloody bone to splinter from the flesh. This was only topped with further laughing after Tom Green HILARIOUSLY and INGENIOUSLY licked the bone. This man is a genius. How funny do you get?

And then there are those who argue, "So what?! He's just pushing the envelope! After all, Citizen Kane was controversial in it's day." Well, this movie is not Citizen Kane. This movie is the cinematic equivalent of being impaled onto a 10 foot rusted nail, head first. Although, perhaps head first is too quick a death...

Also, I apologize for sounding like a critic, but animal ejaculation just never did it for me as comedy. Maybe I'm just a jerk. Or possibly, I'm not a %$#@ing idiot. I award this movie 0 stars.
