Unfavorably comparing it with such infamously bad titles as Battlefield Earth, a significant number of critics are calling Tom Green's extreme gross-out comedy the worst movie they have ever seen.

Movie Info

Television star Tom Green makes his directorial debut with this gross-out comedy. Green stars as Gord Brody, a 28-year-old slacker who aspires to be an animator of Hollywood cartoons. After his dreams of working for studio mogul Dave Davidson (Anthony Michael Hall) temporarily wash out, along with his thankless job at a cheese factory, Gord returns home to live with his parents, Jim (Rip Torn) and Julie (Julie Hagerty). Jim wishes that Gord would simply grow up, move out of the basement, and get

In a sense, this is a horror film, worse than anything Andy Kaufman could dream up, in which Green tries to outgross himself.

Freddy Got Fingered is pure masturbation, and I'm sorry to say I mean that both literally and figuratively.

As a movie, it's a piece of garbage, but when considered as a series of gags, many of which are tasteless and tired but an equal number are inspired, it's worth seeing.

Fearless and culturally resonant...a Dadaistic sendup of knee-jerk moralism and teen comedies in general.

August 22, 2002 Full Review | Comments (2)

The story is nothing more than a series of set-ups for Green to do his thing, and with no one to yell "cut," Green keeps going and going and going, usually long after the laugh has faded.

probably the most detestable production of the decade; or, heck, quite possibly ever!

When actors are paid to take [Green's] abuse and know exactly what's coming, it's not funny or shocking. It's sadistic.

Tom Green cowrites, directs and stars in what is essentially Tom Green's primal scream. So, if Tom Green screams in an empty theater, does he make a sound?

Green relentlessly gives himself and only himself pleasure during the course of this alleged comedy's torturous 100 minutes.

Rather than create a compelling storyline with a few outrageous bits along the way, Green offers a series of shock scenes.

Audience Reviews for Freddy Got Fingered

"The Horror! The Horror!"

You are guaranteed to utter those words after watching Tom Green's self-indulgent, crude, vile, mindless, and utterly embarrassing attempt at comedy. There is literally no plot in this movie; it just a series of painful and a lot of the times disturbing comedy skits that aim to be shocking and offensive only to accomplish those goals TOO well. One of the biggest rules when it comes to comedy is that if you are going to be offensive then you better be funny about it (Ex. Sacha Baron Cohen in 'Borat'). I never saw Tom Green's popular MTV show but in this movie he disregards clever comedic timing in favor of shouting every single line like an idiotic man-child.

This film contains some of the most grotesque and unpleasant skits you'll ever witness in the name of comedy. The film starts off okay with a slightly cool skateboarding sequence but things quickly take a turn for the worst when Green stops to grab a horse's penis. Things only get worst from there: literally wearing the skin of a dead deer, swinging a newborn baby by it's umbilical cord with blood spraying everywhere, child molestation jokes, many instances of animal cruelty, to even spraying elephant seamen. Green is obviously aiming for the gut but the jokes are simply not funny (which is the most offensive aspect of this movie). I can laugh at gross-out humor and go along with a nihilistic tone but Green's scatter-brained screenplay haphazardly balances these elements to say the least. There is just an unsettling air of mean-spiritedness undercutting the whole proceedings with the film's nasty dislikable characters (Green's character is by the far them most disturbing protagonist to NOT be in a horror flick) and graphic distasteful slapstick.

This piece of ultra low brow trash is a movie that even people who laugh at bottom-of-the-barrel crap will have trouble sitting through. It may be only an hour and thirty minutes but it will feel like an eternity, and a very tortuous one. It is a humorless, depressingly mean-spirited, uncomfortable, and un-focused mess (Is it a satire? Is it surreal absurdity?). This is by far one of the worst comedies of all time, if not one of the worst movies of all time.

To elaborate on how much this film is loved, Leonard Maltin wrote a long, detailed review of the film, but the review was deleted because it was blowing up the site's search engine because, fucking come on, when people start to respect a film critic, the first two things they want to know is where Freddy Got Fingered places on their top 10 list, and does it rank lower or higher than Taxi Driver. The Holy Ebert himself said "this movie doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence with barrels." which was obviously a hint to his audience that he was ROLLING over with laughter. like barrels do. i love metaphors. and man, is this movie full of them. I remember when Gord is driving and has to pull over so he can aid an injured deer and the only memory he could locate that would help the situation is an instance where a man advised him to "get inside the fucking animal." AND BOY DOES HE DO IT! LOLZ! The Righteous Ebert looked up to this film so much that he had to give it zero stars because any star rating would just be a fucking grey hair in Tom Green's goatee.

I wasn't offended by Freddy Got Fingered like everyone else who hates it. I think everyone who hates this film hates it for the wrong reasons. Firstly i'm perfectly fine with over the top gross out humour as long as it's funny but this film was not and just horribly inconsistent and entirely rotten to the core. The film makes almost no attempt at making the lead character likable and he's just running around, shouting and being an idiot, and not in the usual comedy movie kind of way. Also, i'm perfectly fine with fictional beastiality but not when it's really happening and not plainly obvious animal cruelty which is something this insult of a movie has a lot of. As soon as it began I wanted it to end, the film rightly deserves it's title as one of the worst films ever made. It's essentialy a compilation of depressing, appauling animal cruelty, mean dislikable characters, jokes that are far too desperate and is in general a gigantic piece of low brow trash. Nearer to the end of the film there is a piece of card someone holds up that say's something on the lines of "when is this film going to f**king end?" I'd be lying if I didn't say I wanted to say that about 10 minutes in. I loathed it.

One of the most unappreciated movies of the decade, Tom Green directs one of the silliest movies of 2001. With scenes that include running around in deer skin to scuba diving in the shower, this is one of the best comedies in my movie list.

The worst part of about it was that only people who appreciates poop jokes will find this remotely amusing
