Storyline

Aspiring animator Gord, 28, leaves his Oregon home to sell his ideas to Hollywood. After being told, correctly, that they're possibly the stupidest ideas ever and he needs to rethink them, he moves back home. But his unpleasant father escalates his mean treatment of his unconventional son. Meanwhile, Gord falls for Betty, an attractive doctor at the hospital where a friend is staying. She's in a wheelchair and happens 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>

Quotes

Darren: [Gord is working on his skate ramp in the middle of the night, hammering nails loudly] Gord, don't hammer them so loud! Jeez, it's late, you're gonna wake your parents up.
Gord: You're right, I should probably use the electric nail gun.
Darren: Well, yeah.
[Uses the nail gun, making even louder noise. Jim wakes up]
Jim: Oh, boys, will you faggots stop making so fucking much noise? We're trying to sleep!
[Gord continues to use the nail gun]
Jim: Goddammit!

Jim: Stop the fucking hammering!

User Reviews

Don't pay to watch the movie... just watch the TV show.
21 April 2001 | by raffibagSee all my reviews

I am not a "fan" of Tom Green. I rarely watch his television show. However, when I do watch the show, I consider it a guilty pleasure. But what makes his type of humor work on television is the fact that he is interacting with real people in real situations. FREDDY GOT FINGERED is not real. It's a MOVIE... In my opinion, that defeats the entire point of Tom Green's style. It just doesn't work.

As for all the criticism of this film, I'm sure it's exactly what Green expected. At least it wasn't pretentious. It was just plain awful.
