Freddy Got Fingered


Freddy Got Fingered – Surreal

In the magical land of Canada there is a man who sucks cows' nipples, torments complete strangers, and treats his friends like winners.  That man is Tom Green.  Back in the late 90s, MTV took a liking to this strange young man and gave him his own weekly show and soon enough old Greeny went Hollywood and birthed from his loins came “Freddy Got Fingered.”

A lot has been said about “Fingered” over the years; how awful, vile, deplorable, sick, the accolades can go on and on, but I have to say, without Tom Green and this oft-kilter comedy (I say it’s more performance art then actual comedy) you wouldn’t have your “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job” or “Workaholics” comedies that really pushes the limits of taste, and what we can take.

Aside from skateboarding and other post-adolescent hijinks, this comic gem includes deer carcass wearing, horse penis wiggling, compound leg fracture licking, a sadomasochist wheelchair bound rocket scientist, and of course my favorite, baby umbilical cord swinging.  If that isn't performance art, I really don't know what you'd call it.

Outside of all the wacky antics, there is one performance that really stands out, and that is Rip Torn's.  With all the fucked up stuff going on in "Fingered" you forget its really the story of a son just trying to gain his father's trust by spraying him with elephant cum.

Heartwarming, and definitely fun for the entire family, "finger" it out and go check out "Freddy Got Fingered" you won't regret what you'll see.

Fun Fact:  The scene where Freddy is watching TV in his house are actual scenes from Tom Green's surgery for Testicular Cancer
