There is only one word to describe Freddy Got Fingered: AWFUL! This movie, directed by and starring Tom Green is by far one of the worst movies ever made. This movie is like watching "The Tom Green Show" for 93 minutes without any commercial interruptions; in other words: torture. And not only is this movie dumb, but this so-called comedy is NOT funny. Tom Green, along with the supporting cast, managed to gross me out about every 5 minutes of the movie.

If you are still not discouraged to see this bad excuse for a film, here is a little summary that will hopefully kill every want you ever had to see this awfulness.

Tom Green plays Gord Brody, a 28-year-old man, who finally moves out of his parents' house and moves to Hollywood to become an animator. On the way there, he manages to play with a horse's penis because he thought it was funny. He fails as an animator and returns home. There he gets heat from his father (Rip Torn) for being an unemployed loser. After putting his friend in the hospital, Gord meets a crippled nurse named Betty (Marisa Coughlan), who is an aspiring nuclear physicist and whose idea of a date consists of pleasuring her man with oral sex. The whole movie consists of Gord or Tom Green (no difference whatsoever) ruining the life of his parents while attempting to gross out the audience.

The reason why this movie is called Freddy Got Fingered is because during a father-son therapy session, instead of admitting that he is wrong, Gord accuses his father of fingering his little brother Freddy (Eddie Kaye Thomas).

The only funny moment in this film is the cameo by Shaquille O'Neal, but not even Shaq can save this awful movie. Don't bother seeing Freddy; it's really a disappointment.
