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>

Worst Movie Ever.
29 April 2001 | by JRGBUCSSee all my reviews

This movie was without a doubt the worst movie I have ever seen. I like Tom Green's TV show a little bit. I loved the episode with Monica Lewinski. But for this review I'm forced to quote the wise and all knowing Comic Book Store Guy "Worst Episode Ever."

Don't get me wrong, I like comedy. The Simpsons have entertained me for over a decade. I loved movies like Election, Wag the Dog, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Tommy Boy, Clerks and Chasing Amy. However you will notice that these movies I have mentioned were funny, while Freddy Got Fingered is stupid. Cutting open a deer and laying around it's major organs is not funny. Swinging a baby around is not funny. Masturbating a horse is not funny. All-in-all not a funny movie at all. In fact, an insult to the word comedy.

Tom Green: think up something half way funny for your next movie, if any.
