Freddy Got Fingered

Synopsis: 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.

Hi. Hi. Hi. Hi.

I'm X-ray Cat. I've got super powers.

I can see through wooden doors

with my X-ray vision. Wooden doors.

I can see the criminal on the other side.

He can't see me, and he's committing crime.

I come along and say "I can see you. He says

"You can't." I say "Yes, I can with my..."

X-ray...

X-ray Cat.

"You can't get me. You can't get me."

"Yes, I can. Yes, I can."

"Yes, I can. Yes..."

The bananas.

I know a banana who applied for a job

as a telephone repairman.

Guy came and said "You want a job here?"

And he said "Yeah, I wanna get a job."

"You got the job!

You got the job, buddy!"

And then the beavers came. The beaver

started yelling at the other beaver.

The beaver started yelling at the other beaver.

He said "You stupid beaver!"

"You stupid..."

(# "Problems" by Sex Pistols)

Bye, Gord. Good luck.

Hey! Get off that skateboard!

# Too many problems

Oh, why am I here

# I don't need to be me

Cos you're all too clear

# And I can see

there's something wrong with you

# But what do you expect me to do?

# At least I gotta know what I wanna be

# Don't come to me if you need pity

# Are you lonely?

You got no one

# You got your body in suspension

# Problem

# Problem

# Problem

# The problem is you

# Eat your heart out on a plastic tray...

# Problem

# Problem

# Problem

# The problem is you

Gordie, honey.

I'm so sad you're leaving me.

Why are you moving to Los Angeles

to work in a cheese factory?

I'm not gonna just work in a cheese sandwich

factory. I'm gonna shop my drawings.

- I'm gonna be like Charles Schulz.

- You'll be fine.

- No, I'm gonna be like Charles Schulz.

- That's my boy. Confidence.

You're a big man now.

You've got a job, a goddamn real job, Gord.

And you gave up on those stupid doodles.

They're not stupid. They're not stupid.

Whatever. At least

you're leaving Daddy's basement.

Sh, Jim. He has a very nice job.

Look at our little baby boy.

He's all grown up. You come here.

- Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom...

- You little baby...

Mom, stop it. Stop it.

Mom, I'm a 28-year-old man.

Hey, baby. He's a 28-year-old man.

Yeah, I'm a 28-year-old man.

My bus is about to leave,

so I'm gonna get on it...

...and I'm gonna leave... on it.

- Son, wait.

- What?

You're not taking that bus to Los Angeles.

You bought me a ticket

on this bus to Los Angeles.

That's not all we bought you.

- There! It's yours. Hop in.

- Oh!

- Come on, you're driving.

- It's a... It's a LeBaron.

You bet your boots it's a LeBaron.

Good car. Convertible.

Jeez. A convertible.

It says "#1 Son" on the license plate.

That's me. I'm the number one son.

- What about me, Mom?

- You're number one son, too.

Then how come

Gord gets a LeBaron and I don't?

- Cos they love me more than they love you.

- No. No, they don't.

Oh, yeah? I only see one LeBaron, Freddy.

I don't see two LeBarons.

- Gordie. Gordie.

- Do you see two?

- Knock it off.

- Where's your LeBaron, Freddy?

- Boys! Boys!

- How many LeBarons are there? Two?

Shut up!

Gord, this car is more than a gift.

It's...

It's kind of an investment in you.

It means I believe in my son.

You be a good man.

Father, I... I will be a good man.

You make your daddy proud. You hear me?

I'm gonna make you proud, Daddy.

I'm gonna make you so proud.

Make your daddy proud.

- You're gonna be so proud.

- Proud?

Proud.

Get the f*ck outta the way!

Well...

...the boy's grown up.

He's finally gone.

(# "Cars" by Gary Numan)

# Here in my car

I feel safest of all

# I can lock all my doors

It's the only way to live...

- What are you doin' to that horse?
