Yes, it's sick humor. No, it's not for everyone. But this IS Tom Green! I can't imagine what some of the people who reviewed this movie were expecting - Citizen Kane? C'MON PEOPLE!
There is precious little plot - just enough for each Tom Green site gag or gross out gag, which is basically what Tom Green does and is known for. Letting him direct this film, I can't imagine what people thought they'd see? Most people I know did not like this film, and a close friend of mine still will make fun of me for liking it, if I ever bring up the title, but so what?
If lowbrow humor, sight gags and gross out scenes make you chuckle, this film is for you. Also, great acting, as usual, from Rip Torn - he's hysterical.
Just remind yourself it's a Tom Green vehicle, and you're only watching it for the lowbrow humor, you'll be fine. If you sit down to watch a major movie production, yes, you'll be disappointed but I don't think that was even close to the aim of this movie.
Still ridiculously funny after all these years. The baby scene, the "Backwards Man" scene, and the sausage scene are absolutely inane, yet priceless.
If you've followed Tom's career, you know that he's been doing outrageously shocking things from day one...even before MTV brought him over to the U.S.A. He was once kicked off a Canadian Late Night Show for shaving a dead raccoon. You have to understand that Tom started as a CULT , he didn't just tap-dance into the mainstream like the latest teen-star. His insane humor never was meant for the mainstream. America wanted Tom, and they got him!
Most people, when given their first opportunity to make a Hollywood movie, write something to PLEASE the audience, even if it means CHANGING who they are to do it. Tom didn't change himself for NOBODY! He knew that his pop-cultured-fad fans were expecting something along the lines of "Road Trip" or "American Pie" so he went OVER THE LINE....HE DIDN'T CARE ABOUT HOLLYWOOD!...HE DID SOMETHING FOR HIS TRUE FANS!
Tom knew that this movie would flop, he didn't even try to make it good. The real joke is on Hollywood and the stupid main-streamers who have no idea how much integrity Tom Green has.
Tom Green was definitely ahead of the curve on crude unsympathetic comedy with this film. Rip Torn's delivery is some of his most unique acting ever. The only thing this movie is missing is even more comedian appearances. If you like weird and bizarre humor this film is for you.
Freddy got fingered is a masterwork of bizarre and 'sophomoronic' comedy. There are
Lots of moments of "done in bad taste".
Other movies that I believe fall into and around this genre are.
Idiocracy, Dude where's my car, the dumb and dumber's's, etc..
Pretty much any movie that other people said was funnyish but
crossed some kind of a line.
Ex. Parapeligic woman "Do you have a problem with my legs?"
Angry father "No, you have a problem with your legs."
Context is key and some people just miss it altogether.
Bottom line you will love or hate this movie. I get it, and I love it.

Simply scrumtrelescent as I can find no other words to describe the theatrical wonder that is Freddy got Fingered. #1moviePublished 1 month ago by Carolyn Boylen
I'm sorry. I didn't get this. It was painful, long, and at one point even made fun of itself for being so terrible and long. It was not funny, not even in an ironic way. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Mo
