Xavier is a faun-like wanderer/seeker who is traveling across the land to find out the truth about his mysterious origin. Facing rednecks, inflicting righteousness and preaching about the 'strong, silent types' and morality, this hero has his work cut out for him.
Gordon, 28, an aspiring animator, leaves his home in Oregon to sell his ideas to Hollywood. After being told, correctly, that they are quite possibly the most stupid ideas ever and that he needs to spend time rethinking them, he moves back home. But his father, never a kind man, escalates his mean treatment of his rather unconventional son. Meanwhile, Gord has fallen for Betty, an attractive doctor at the hospital where his friend is staying; she happens to use a wheelchair, and to delight in having her paralyzed legs beaten with a bamboo cane; her sexual aggression intimidates him. Gord's family goes to a psychiatrist, and he lies to her that his father molests Gord's brother, Freddy; Gord neglects to mention that Freddy is 25. Soon, Gordon has the house to himself, and comes up with a winning animated series, "Zebras in America" based on his own family. All this is really a framework on which Tom Green hangs his usual crazy stunts.Written by

Don't pay to watch the movie... just watch the TV show.
I am not a "fan" of Tom Green. I rarely watch his television show. However, when I do watch the show, I consider it a guilty pleasure. But what makes his type of humor work on television is the fact that he is interacting with real people in real situations. FREDDY GOT FINGERED is not real. It's a MOVIE... In my opinion, that defeats the entire point of Tom Green's style. It just doesn't work.
As for all the criticism of this film, I'm sure it's exactly what Green expected. At least it wasn't pretentious. It was just plain awful.
