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

In the scene where Freddy (Eddie Kaye Thomas) watches television in his living room, on the mantle, it shows Tom Green's senior class photo when he graduated from Colonel By High School in 1990. See more »
When Darren breaks his leg skateboarding on Gord's half-pipe, Gord kneels down next to him. Gord's dad comes out and stands by him screaming. A close-up on Darren shows a man in a striped robe kneeling by him. Gord's dad, in the striped robe, is still standing up. See more »
Imagine your average Adam Sandler fart joke humor taken to the extreme. Or just imagine Tom Green. This movie is horrible. I can't possibly imagine how this movie got made. I would like to know just who is in charge of deciding which movies get made and which don't. They obviously saw a different script(?), perhaps with some depth , or character development, or something. Certainly not the one for this movie. Ugh...
