Freddy Got Fingered Woof! 2001 (R)

Green, making his feature directorial debut, is our hero, Gord, a dedicated slacker who refuses to get a job and move out of his father's (Torn) house. Green the director loves Green the “actor,” almost as much as he loves human and animal bodily fluids—all of them. What he does to horses and elephants will poison forever your fond memories of trips to the zoo. He also enjoys oral sex, performed by a wheelchair-bound girlfriend, of course. Then, just to appeal to the family-values crowd, he falsely accuses his overbearing father of sexually abusing his younger brother. Taken in small doses, Green's act can induce “I can't believe I'm laughing at this”-type chuckles, but an hour and a half could cause permanent brain damage. Look what its apparently done to him! To say “Freddy” wallows in the gutter is to besmirch the gutter's good name. 88m/C VHS, DVD .
