Aspiring animator Gord, 28, leaves his Oregon home to sell his ideas to Hollywood. After being told, correctly, that they're possibly the stupidest ideas ever and he needs to rethink them, he moves back home. But his unpleasant father escalates his mean treatment of his unconventional son. Meanwhile, Gord falls for Betty, an attractive doctor at the hospital where a friend is staying. She's in a wheelchair and happens 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

Guess what "Freddy Got Fingered" and a vacuum cleaner have in common...
Good Gravy this movie was a waste of time. I even liked Tom Green's show on MTV, I thought it was hysterical. However, I wasn't sure how his style of comedy would produce laughs in a motion picture. After seeing this movie, I realize that it doesn't.
"Freddy Got Fingered" is unlike any movie you've ever seen. However, that's not a good thing. Weird does not equal good.
I'm even a big fan of 'gross-out' humor. Baseketball, South Park, There's Something About Mary, Scary Movie, Man Bites Dog; None of those movies offended me. Freddy Got Fingered however, did offend me. It offended me by not being funny.
Before I saw this movie I genuinely liked Tom Green. Now, after he stole 87 minutes out of my life. I long for his career to end.
