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>

Trivia

Tom Green performed most of his own stunts, including the skateboarding 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. See more »

May as well turn out to be the worst movie ever made
25 November 2001 | by Moviemasterh80See all my reviews

Judging by poor reviews from critics, poor box office numbers, and a particularly bad user rating here at iMDb; Freddy Got Fingered may as well turn out to be the worst movie ever made! I'm not exaggerating either. The sick twisted sense of humor from Tom Green is put on the big screen. BAD IDEA!!! There was one man in this movie that saved me from walking out of the theatre, Rip Torn. He was a hoot in this movie. I must admit to see him smack around Tom Green like that is satisfying. However, I think he is at the lowest point of his career and not even he can save this pretty sorry movie. I did laugh a few times like some of the cameos that this film has and of course Rip Torn, but it was too gross to be called at least a chuckable experience. This movie does have a loyal audience following and about 90% are Canadian. Let's face it, Canadians have different senses of humor than Americans. They think this movie is hilarious. Oh, wait o they don't! :( BEWARE!!! Like the tag line says, "This Time You Can't Change The Channel!", but you can walk out of the theatre and demand your money back!
