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>

An Atrocity to the Art of Film-making

Freddy Got Fingered is neither clever, nor entertaining, and is certainly not anything more than the masturabatorial direction debut of a fool with a camera. The film has no arc, no genuine plot development, and not a single character is likable (not to be confused with the Byronic-Heros of films like "A Clockwork Orange,"). The vast majority of the scenes serve no purpose at all in the film. Those who claim that the film is not just a 'gross-out' comedy are sadly mistaken. There is no second interpretation of an elephant masturbation scene. It does not 'portray' anything remotely deeper than the superficiality of it's repulsiveness. Those who claim that this film is similar to other shunned films at their debut (references to "A Clockwork Orange" and "The Shining") are using inaccurately transitive properties. It's like saying that since slavery abolitionists of the 1800's were initially unpopular, yet now are heroes, that neo-nazis should be held as heroes since they are presently unpopular. Not to mention that the films cited above were unpopular because they filmed scenes that were supplemental to the plot, yet appeared graphic, and ultimately enhanced the social commentary. THERE IS NO SOCIAL COMMENTARY IN A BABY-SWINGING FILM. And don't try and claim that 'individuality' angle. Charles Manson was 'individual' too. In conclusion, do not watch this film. If you are thinking about watching it because you heard so many bad reviews and think it would be entertaining in it's awfulness, go no further. This film deserves no respect. It is a stain on the art of films.
