Freddy Got Fingered Movie Review
Tom Green might be stupid, might be annoying, but he sure is funny when it comes to his television show, where he basically makes a fool of himself in public. It is a completely different matter when he does foolish things in a movie, pushing the limits of absurdity and grossness. It is very easy to say that Freddy Got Fingered is that worst movie that I have ever seen.
Freddy Got Fingered is roughly about a loser who still lives at home even though he is 28, and he drives his parents insane. If anyone has ever watched "The Tom Green Show" they know that in real life, Green does not get along with his parents too well. In the movie, he bothers his parents, but he takes the audience down with them, losing them after minute one.
Maybe he didn't figure it out in time, or maybe he just didn't care, but people think that Tom Green is funny because he is willing to embarrass himself and act like a complete dumb ass in public. People do not think it as funny when someone fakes it, and does it for an hour and a half. Freddy Got Fingered looks like a bunch of clips from his television shows, only here he isn't actually doing anything; he is working to a script (or what resembles the outline of a script) and everything he does is expected.
Tom Green has humped a dead moose on the side of the road, but he pushes the limits of grossness in Freddy Got Fingered. I am pretty much immune to any kind of disgusting thing, but this movie made me edgy. At one point he cuts open a dead deer and decides to wear it. One of the neighborhood kids trips and hits his head on the concrete, cracking his skull open. One of Green's friends falls while skateboarding and his knee joint pops out of his skin. Is this funny? No, it's disgusting, and not even Tom Green fans while find it amusing.
Worst of all, Freddy Got Fingered is about nothing. The script is nonexistent, the gags are not funny, and there isn't a single person that has watched this movie that doesn't want to blow Green's head off for being insensitive. If you're wondering about the title of the film, Green makes up a lie saying that his dad molests his younger brother, Freddy. It's just wrong.
Freddy Got Fingered is crude, pointless, and easily the worst movie I have ever seen. The only good part in the movie is at the very end, when someone holds up a sign saying, "When the fuck is this movie going to end?" I was thinking that from minute one.
