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>

It doesn't get much worse then this......
25 July 2002 | by MoonRavenSee all my reviews

SICK, SICK ,SICK, SICK, SICK, SICK, SICK, SICK, SICK, SICK,....

Thats what this movie is, it's so HORRIBLE SO BAD SO AWFUL. I wanted to throw up afterwards. If you want a good HORROR movie watch this, it's scarier then ANY Horror movie I have ever seen. Terrible, with a capital T, the fact anyone would make this into a movie is scary, I'm shocked this was even considered. This is the most overrated movie on the hole IMDB.com, I would much rather be put through: Manos: And the Hand of Fate, Glitter or Niight Train to Mudo Fine, they might be STUPID and BAD, but at least they are watchable trash and easy to make fun.

OUT 10 stars this gets 1 frozen dead guy and an 20 day dead Skunk and 2 maggots
