Film / Freddy Got Fingered

"I'm going to make you proud, daddy."
Gord, Tom Green's character near the beginning of the film.

"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."
Roger Ebert, who put this on his most hated list.

Freddy Got Fingered is a 2001 comedy film written, directed by, and starring Tom Green, who had just completed season four of The Tom Green Show.

The film shows the cartoonist Gord Brody (Green) heading to Los Angeles to obtain a contract for a television series. But the producer tells him, quite rightly, that his ideas don't make any sense, forcing him to go back home, to the chagrin of his father.

This film provides examples of:

  • Adorkable: Gord, naturally, as he is played by Tom Green.
  • A Fool and His New Money Are Soon Parted: Gord squanders his advance for his cartoon series pitch by renting a helicopter in order to fly a bag of jewels to Betty and then cutting off part of his father's house and shipping it to Pakistan.
  • All Women Are Lustful: Betty repeatedly insists on sucking Gord off, and he is often hesitant to accept.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Gord being mentally ill would explain so much.
  • Anti-Humor:
    "What do you call a guy with cheese on his face? The cheese face!"
  • Black Comedy Rape: The titular (fabricated) assault, which doesn't actually have that much bearing on the plot.
  • Bloody Hilarious: The scene where Gord delivers a baby, for a woman he's never met, after ignoring her pleas to get a real doctor. The incredibly NSFW result becomes what referred to as "one of the bloodiest births ever put on film."
