Freddy Got Fingered is a 2001 American black comedy film directed by Tom Green and starring himself, Rip Torn, and Marisa Coughlan. The film follows the story of a 28-year-old aspiring cartoonist named Gord Brody, who moves back into his parents' house after failing to make it big in Los Angeles. Once there, he engages in a series of outrageous antics that include fashioning a wheelchair out of his father's car, working in a cheese sandwich factory, and launching a rocket that injures his father.

The film opens with Gord Brody, who is living in Los Angeles and working at a cheese sandwich factory. Despite his job, Gord's passion is drawing cartoons, and he believes that he has the talent to make it big. After a failed attempt to sell his children's show to a television network, Gord returns home to Portland, Oregon to live with his parents, Jim and Julie.

Once back home, Gord struggles to fit in, but his behavior becomes increasingly erratic. He frequently argues with his father, who disapproves of his creative ambitions, and he continuously harasses his younger brother, Freddy. Gord's mother, Julie, is supportive but constantly worried about her son's behavior.

Gord's antics include fashioning a wheelchair out of his father's car and pretending to be paralyzed, getting a job at a cheese sandwich factory and causing chaos on the production line, harassing a local family with his rocket-powered skateboard, and launching a rocket that is intended to go to the moon but instead goes astray and crashes into his father's truck, causing a serious injury.

Throughout the film, Gord is convinced that his cartoons will lead him to success, and he is determined to get them into the hands of a producer. He even hires a professional animator named Dave, who is played by Anthony Michael Hall, to help him bring his cartoons to life. However, Gord's dreams are constantly interrupted by his outrageous behavior, and his family's disapproval.

Despite its controversial subject matter and often graphic humor, Freddy Got Fingered has become something of a cult classic in the years since its release. The film's irreverent humor and utter lack of restraint have been praised by some and condemned by others, but it remains a unique and singularly bizarre entry in the annals of American comedy.

Tom Green's performance as Gord Brody has been particularly polarizing. Some have praised his commitment to the character's outlandish behavior and physical comedy, while others have criticized Green's performance as grating and obnoxious.

Rip Torn turns in a memorable performance as Gord's father, Jim, and Marisa Coughlan is excellent as Gord's love interest, Betty. The film also features appearances by Julie Hagerty, Shaquille O'Neal, and Drew Barrymore.

In addition to its outrageous humor, Freddy Got Fingered has also been noted for its memorable soundtrack, which features songs by Ween, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and The Flaming Lips.

Overall, Freddy Got Fingered is not for everyone, but it remains a one-of-a-kind film that is worth checking out for fans of unconventional comedy.

Freddy Got Fingered is a 2001 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 29 minutes. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.6 and a MetaScore of 13.
