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

A scene where Stephen Tobolowsky played Tom's uncle at the cheese factory was cut from the movie. His uncle introduces him to the factory and they pay homage to I Love Lucy (1951), by doing a gag making cheese sandwiches. See more »

Goofs

At the factory when Gord is clowning around on the conveyor belt, he takes a salami from the end of a row. Later it shows a salami missing in the middle, not at the end of it. See more »

Quotes

Gord Brody: Hi. How are you?
Betty: I'd be a lot better if you'd smack my legs with this bamboo.

This time you can't change the channel...but you wish you could
25 April 2001 | by ChuckMoselySee all my reviews

Complete and utter tripe. I like stupid physical humour as much as the next guy, but this was just pure crap. Rehashes of old Tom Green skits, no where plot, terrible direction. I'm surprised my eyes didn't bleed, at least I didn't have to pay to see it (Hurrah for VCD)... And the compulsory "An hour or so of my life which I can never get back".
