"The day may come when this movie is seen as a masterpiece of neo-surrealism. The day may never come when it is seen as funny."
"The movie's comic heart consists of a series of indescribably loopy, elaborately conceived happenings that are at once rigorous and chaotic, idiotic and brilliant. Some of these... might have qualified for a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts if MTV and studio money hadn't been forthcoming and may show up some day at the Museum of Modern Art."
"This cannot be Dada! It's too normal to be Dada! It's too shit to be anything else!"Freddy Got Fingered is a 2001 comedy film written, directed by and starring Tom Green. The film shows the apparently mentally-retarded cartoonist Gord Brody (Green) heading to Los Angeles to obtain a contract for a television series. The producer, however, tells him, quite rightly, that his ideas don't make any sense, forcing him to go back home, to the chagrin of his father.The film is infamous for its... bawdy humour, which extends to bestiality, rape, and ripping a baby straight out of a woman's womb, in what Roger Ebert ascribed to a trend in Hollywood, starting several years previously and being definitively capped with this film. What was intended by Green as comedy was hated by reviewers, and has a reputation as one of the worst films of all time.However, critical reception has softened since its release; a year after the film's release, Ebert re-examined the film and stated that, although he found it horrible, he admitted it was at least ambitious in its aim, and that Green had potential to "make a movie worth seeing" some day. A decade later... he still hasn't. The film itself has gone on to gain a cult following.
