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

The whole idea of the "cheese sandwiches" is from a sketch on The Tom Green Show (1999) 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!" See more »

Easily the worst film
20 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

This film has to be the worst film I have ever seen in my entire life. It is inconceivable that a major motion picture studio would actually release this film after viewing it once themselves.

Obviously, the feeling was that Tom Green ( who makes Pauly Shore seem like Sir Laurence Olivier ) could carry this with his popularity ( something I have never understood from the start ).

Hopefully, this will be the last time this ever happens.
