    I stopped watching Freddy got Fingered when he started licking his friend's broken knee. Shit was random, gross, and not funny.

    Originally it was rated NC-17. Why even pretend such a stupid movie (and shock humorists like Tom Green) have deeper meaning?

    If you're looking for symbolism with horses, Jung made up equating them with virility and other folks have adopted that template.

    Don't try to justify this flick by anachronistically interpreting it with a trolling standard. A good troll is a comedian, he's funny. Tom Green isn't funny.

    The last time I saw Green on tv, Attack of the Show had him break something on set and pretended he was acting out. It was impotent and pathetic.

    there's not enough canadian bacon, Poutine & Tim Orton's coffee to make up for the horror

  • SkitsAreStupid
    So I see Chick didn't even bother to consider the possibility that maybe Tom Green just made this movie because someone offered him $15 million to make a movie and he took it and pissed it all away to troll Hollywood?

    possibility? there is no other rational explanation. same goes for the show, based on the little i've seen of it.

    You should just watch some SCTV or Picnicface or Corner Gas or something, that should ease the pain.
  • Bloodrealm
    SCTV, yes. Corner Gas, yes. But from the promos I've seen of Picnicface, it looks pretty close to this movie.
  • Mucca  - Re: Bloodrealm.
    avatar
    Well, I can imagine it's not for everyone, but I think it's a hell of a lot better than this shit. There's an art to that kinda humour, Tom Green completely misses it, and while Picnicface can be a little hit-and-miss, I think it understands it for the most part. Besides, it's got recommendations from Dave Foley and Mark McKinney, two of the Kids in the Hall like it and it can't be that bad.

    Right, Kids in the Hall. I KNEW there was some Canadian comedy I was forgetting about.
  • ImaShaman

    why its not like it matters. I'm Canadian and i love this movie while i never watched the show i just had to see the movie just from the commercials. I never got why people hate this movie,sure it's not good but lots of comedies are bad but still make me laugh and that's what this does make laugh witch is all it set out to do and i like it for that.if it doesn't that's fine comedy is hard to do not everyone finds the same things funny nor will everyone like some movies.I just happen to like this one.

    Why is everyone so pissy about that kid? He's an annoying little shit who makes horrible music, yes, but the amount of hatred some people feel for him is completely out of proportion.
  • 9ansean
    Oh, it's just the same sort of resentment flushed upon all teen pop phenomenoms who have a massive following and just refuese to go away quitely. The serious music lover who doesn't have much use for processed-escapiest pop can't stand that broadcasters won't stop playing the hot yound stars because there the most popular with the very young. Since the pre-teen crowd hasn't been around long enough to have heard a great variety of music, we just smogly assume they can't possible know what good music is supposed to sound like and they may just be following the teen pop star because they have a crush on him/her/them. So we the serious music fans blame them for ruining music, as if there aren't pluntly of other more serious (or least more challenging) forms of music to choice from. The truth is by saturating the market though appeals to teenage fantasies,the teen pop starts are really doing a necessary job. Which is making the job of "real artists" as difficult as possible.

    FINALLY. We got someone, or some people, you review this terd. =D

    Thank god I wasn't big on Tom Green before he disappeard to wherever. The only thing I've seen him in, as far as I can remember, was the 1st Charlie's Angels movie, where he played Drew Barrymore's boyfriend (Hm, I wonder why).
    Nice job quoting Roger Ebert, Brad.

    9:18- ...It's right here where I wonder if Tom Green was adopted from an alien. An idiot version of Superman if you will.

    12:04- Good thing we now have Marvel's The Avengrs to wash this ...thing from our memories.

    16:14- To quote a certain critic of this site, "WHAT THE F**K AM I LOOKING AT!?!?!?!?"

    I'm gonna have a hard time sleeping tonight, and I never look at a sausage the same way again.
  • Trencher
    Last time I saw Tom Green was when he showed up in that Little Miss Gamer episode.
  • BooRat
    avatar
    This is not a turd! THIS IS PURE SHIT!

    The only thing I saw him in I liked but it sure as hell wasn't for his dumbass was the movie Road Trip.

    12:04-NOT GOOD ENOUGH WE MUST PURGE THIS VIRUS FROM THE PLANET! NOT UNTIL TOM GREEN'S HEAD IS NO MY TABLE WILL THIS NIGHTMARE END!

    I won't be able to eat pudding ever again... thanks!

    Man, I knew this movie was horrible, but now after watching this review and reading its wiki, I somehow understand how this movie could become an art form. This truly is counter-culture, and has become the ultimate tribute of trolls. But still, I prefer Beavis & Butt-head over Tom Green anyway.

    But that line: DADDY WOULD LIKE SOME SAUSAGE? DADDY WOULD LIKE SOME SAUSAGES?

  • JoeCat  - Ah TGWTG and films with newborn abuse.
    avatar
    The poor-man's Tara Reid, "Marisa Coughlan", was in one good film. Super Troopers. Though she did fairly little in the film despite being the female lead...

    And as far as 2nd worst thing with a newborn baby goes, I admit I expected a "Human Centipede 2" reference. Granted, there's been worse, but usually only in more obscure films.

    - - - - -

    I like the closing statement of "Tom Green = Troll", since that's pretty much exactly what the man's comedy always was. Trying to get a rise out of everyone he met, often in the most annoying, shocking, or otherwise juvenile fashion possible. And as both you two quip and the movie itself hints, "Freddy Got Fingered" itself is a troll, though I feel moreso at the studio who funded Tom Green's movie (as the film hints) than the comedies of the era it parodies.

    Kind of funny too, since Tom Green's act pretty much paved the way for MTV's later wave of programs like Jackass and Viva La Bam. Unlike Tom Green though, those shows focused on just juvenile shock or slapstick humor rather than straight up "trolling".
  • JethroQ

    I think the newborn reference was a nod at A Serbian Film.

    Anyway, all those sausages and mayonaise... the hotel staff must have loved you for that.

    Except Jackass is closer to actually surrealism. Because all like Tom Green (who mearely appeared to be stageing his destructive anttics, the case of Jackass were willing to REALLY injure themselves. Almost to point where what you see actually look total real, but feels like it shouldn't be!
  • dougbutcher
    Tom Green. Making Zap Rowsdower the pride of the Great White North by comparison.
  • Midori

    Ahahah!

    I just wrote a paper on Dadaism and Surrealism for my history of photography class. It had a Man Ray Photo of a woman holding a spiky dildo statue ( Femme tenant l'objet désagréable), a Bellmer Photo of realistic dolls made to look like cutup bodyparts (poupee), and Dorthea Tanning's painting "Motherhood."

    Horray nightmare fuel. But yeah, I got some weird looks when I was printing out the photos in the library.
  • simonsquest
    avatar
    Yep, Tom Green was popular when I was 13-14. My parents banned MTV probably for the better.

    Never saw Freddy Got Fingered, now I am actually intrigued. Heard it had no redeeming qualities whatsoever, I believe it!
  • Leon Real
    Wow... I mean, wow.
    You know what I'd like to do? Find a former Tom Green fan and ask him/her: "Did you actually like this guy? And how do you feel about that now?".
  • dougbutcher
    Freddy Got Fingered is highly reminiscent of Bunuel. When I meet Tom Green, I want to slit his eye open like a dog.
  • princeofdorkness
    avatar
    This might come across as odd but I've always seen Tom Green as a modern day Andy Kaufman, and could've easily seen that movie as what Kaufman would've done given the opportunity.

    Think about it, both blurred the lines of conventional humor, and in the process annoyed millions of people.
  • Rabnix
    Actually, I was thinking exactly the same thing after I watched this review. It almost seemed like he made this film for his own enjoyment, rather than anyone else's. I think he just likes seeing people pissed off.
  • dougbutcher
    Ionesco? Either you missed the obvious Equus joke or there is a hidden scene where Tom Green jacks off a rhino.

    What is with the new ad that has someone saying “huh huh huh…” as background noise? Not as annoying as this movie looks, but still pretty weird.
    Wow, I’ve never heard of this guy and I’m not sorry for it. I never got the whole “it’s funny because it’s gross and awkward” style of humor.
  • Semudara

    "Oh, Super-man..."

    Yeah, it's a pretty weird song, but I kind of like it.

    I'm with you on the gross-out humor; if this movie really was intended as a parody of that stuff...then I guess it succeeded perfectly. But you would need an ironic sense of humor made of iron (see what I did there?) to be able to sit through this movie and enjoy it as a parody.

  • theChancellor  - at least our economy doesn't suck
    Canada isn't the one to be on trial here. Remember that despite our MAJOR differences in principal "GNPism" and other municipal and federal practices. Canada and the US of Attention disorder have always essentially shared the exact same bullshit consumer culture and through that outsourcing hubris will continue to mass produce shit like jersey shore and GLeeeEEEeee the bulk of simulcasted programming, or as my sister calls it "entertainment" *sigh* Marxism looks really good right about now.

    What are you talking about?! How do you get from "The USA and Canada both produce bad entertainment and outsource jobs." to "Marxism looks good?"
  • theChancellor
    its a joke, I put in the *sigh* to feign my existentialism a little and by "outsource jobs" I meant how both Canadian and American productions can coop to potentially make abominable pieces of crap. srry if I wasn't very clear

    So the Hospital scene with the newborn is worse than a serbian film?

    I'm pretty sure he was referring to A Serbian Film when he mentioned that this was the "second-worst" he'd seen, and that the clip he actually showed was just a joke.

    Does anyone else here remember a site member named Little Miss Gamer? And that she played Simon with Mr. Green on one of her episodes?

    Not that it makes him any funnier or less of an idiot. I just thought I'd remind people.

    I saw this movie in the theater the day it came out...

    I was the only one in the theater, at 7:00 at night to watch this movie.

    3rd worst waste of $7.00 in my life.
  • fanime1  - So much child abuse!!!
    avatar
    Yeah, I think Tom Green was before my time, and I never really got into MTV. Byt the time I knew of its existence, I already thought it was stupid. Anyway, this is the most unexpected crossover and review yet. Still I enjoyed it. I remember learning about Dadaism in Art History II. It was the last movement we studied. Anyway, while I see why people would think of this as art, I still think it's a terrible movie that I don't have any interest seeing. Maybe it really is a big troll. And the anti-comedy theory seems legit too. It's amazing how you two were able to find "art" in this junk. Like Oan's line about anything could be art, because it makes such a great debate.
    P.S. That was Brad reading Ebert's quote, wasn't it? ;)

    You guys were awesome. The expressions were perfect. I laughed until tears were present. Of course, then the tears saw the clips of the movie and ran off.
  • Kampung

    All jokes aside about this film being "art", I take the view that art cannot degrade the human condition. If it does, its not art. And pretty much everything in Freddy Got Fingered degrades the human condition and brings out all the worst in what human behaviour is capable of, and therefore the film is not art. Its a disgusting piece of trash, even if its intentionally making an exaggerated commentary on the stupid Adam Sandler comedy flicks of the time (and even the best of those films at least have some type of weird charm, which Green's film doesn't).

    I feel bad for Rip Torn. He went from starring in The Larry Sanders Show to being in a movie that sees him getting sprayed by what is supposed to be elephant jiz.
  • KaptainBrunch
    avatar
    It's ignorant of you to think that art is only here to glorify people.
  • Kampung  - reply
    avatar
    I don't think its here to glorify people as they are (much of what people do hardly calls for glorification), but in a sense to raise them, and the world that surrounds them on a whole, to something better than they currently are. Its a view of art along the lines of how the ancients viewed it, I know, but that is my view nonetheless. Tarkvosky had a nice statement about art along the lines of it bringing harmony to that which is disharmonious.
  • Gethenian

    Someone's been taking AP English or a very narrowly-taught course in Art History, I see.

    Don't worry. You'll learn.
  • Kampung  - Reply towards my post?
    avatar
    Gethenian,

    I'll go under the assumption that that reply was a response to one of my posts. If it was, I typed them in a hurry, so as for any spelling mistakes and improper grammar....mea culpa. Though I hope it's not on the level of AP English. Yikes!

    Anyways, as for the description of my view of art and a (possible) correspondence with how the ancients viewed art, where would this problem lie? The ancients created idealized forms, the reason being that what they viewed around them was not whole, and therefore art was a way to bring all the parts together (so to speak). If I'm missing something and if that is in no way how they viewed art, then by all means, you can correct me.
  • yumekichigai
    avatar
    I think their problem lies with the narrow view you have of art. Art is not meant to just glorify. Often it was, such as the Hellenistic, the Renaissance and the neoclassical to name a few. Many movements are the opposite, such as the Sublime that shows mans' limitations in reason and control. This downfall of humanity is also seen whenever humans become disillusioned with the world, normally due to wars and man made horrors (such as Dadaism). This pessimistic view of humans in form and function can be seen in many pieces such as Goya's later works after the Spanish were slaughtered by Napoleon's army.
    No... this movie is not art, but you cannot define art by a narrow definition.
  • Kampung  - reply
    avatar
    Yumekichigai,

    Thanks for the response.

    I understand that they take issue with the specific view. And yes, I realize there indeed have been other movements in history that take a different view on the subject (hence why I noted it was a view of the ancients, and not a view that has been shared by all throughout history) such as the Romantic view. In addition, I stated my view was along the lines of the ancients, but not in exact similarity. For instance, I think art can show the state of things as they currently are (which is something the classical view probably wouldn't accept), but I don't know if it can wholly divorce the potential of ethical growth from the subject matter it depicts.

    And I think the statement that art cannot be defined by a narrow definition is debatable. But since it is debatable, that also means there are probably some great arguments out there for art to take on a more broader definition. I have yet to come across those arguments that would win me over to the side of giving it a broad based definition, but never say never.
  • TGYDBISG
    avatar
    That's a whole lotta big words. I got a headache sorting it out. As a proud prole I can honestly say that art is, at least to the masses, anything that inspires. ANYTHING. This movie inspires me... Of course it only inspired me to vomit... But I think that was part of Tom Green's goal. I believe that makes it successful art...

    ...Now I'm sad...

    You could always argue that this film "raises" people by being the bottom rung
  • Obstreperous
    I think you all need to stop getting on Kampung's case. That's his view of what art is. You have yours.
    His view isn't narrow, it's just specific. No, it's not even that. In fact, that's pretty vague. All he said, at least at first, was that art cannot degrade the human condition. What does that even mean? Pretty open-ended, really. Just a simple description of his opinion.
    He never said that it "glorifies", so don't say he did.
    Also, he said "I take the view that art cannot degrade the human condition." "I take the view". Translation: "In my opinion". You have yours, he has his.
    If Kampung's view of "art" is that it "cannot degrade the human condition", then who are you to say otherwise? That's his opinion. Isn't art something that makes humanity human? If something makes us less human and more unthinking, can it be called art? Isn't art about creation, about insight, about beauty, inspiration, and contemplation? That's how I see it, more or less. This movie does none of those things. It is unoriginal, it is shallow, it is ugly, it is uninspired, it makes me want to shut down and not think until the images go away. So if you ask me, that means it is not art. If you disagree, then that's your opinion.
    I think that, to an extent, what is art depends on the viewer.
  • yumekichigai
    avatar
    And we have the right to share ours. I did without tearing Kampung apart. Instead of insults, I brought up more facts based upon art history, debunking the idea that art raises man alone. This topic was brought into play when he based his opinion on "the ancients". He can still continue to believe as he does, but I wanted to be sure he was actually aware of these other movements so a more informed decision was made.
  • Kampung
    avatar
    And I made it known I was indeed aware of other such movements, so my view was not exactly made from an uninformed position. Nor did I state a purpose of raising man alone (as I mentioned the world as well).
