Freddy Got Fingered

Freddy Got Fingered

Directed by Tom Green • 2001 • United States, Canada
Starring Tom Green, Rip Torn, Marisa Coughlan

Irredeemable affront to good taste? Or subversive Dada masterpiece? Critically reviled upon its release but increasingly recognized for its undeniable, go-for-broke audacity, Tom Green’s infamous gross-out comedy is a true cinematic Rorschach test. Described by Green himself as the “touching story of a young man who desperately wants to make his daddy proud,” FREDDY GOT FINGERED casts the writer-director-star as Gord, an unemployed wannabe cartoonist whose desperate attempts to please his father (Rip Torn) lead him into all sorts of misadventures—whether it’s getting way too friendly with a horse on a stud farm, creating his own form of sausage-based performance art, or wreaking havoc inside a hospital delivery room.
