My 17 year old son just rented the DVD movie “Freddie got Fingered” and I must say that I was worried from the title that it would be a unsuitable movie. But trying not to be judgmental, I decided to watch it. Fortunately, my viewing only lasted approx 30 minutes before I shut it off. I am no prude by any means, but this man (Tom Green) deserves no better than a jail cell in the best insane asylum that could tolerate him. It amazes me that Hollywood could even give this an R rating let alone alow it to be even filmed in the first place.The content that I seen showed a complete lack of taste and sense of what the “normal” world would consider “Comedy”. Tom Green seeks out to shock people and does that within the first 15 minutes of the film. From masturbating a horse and I do not mean a fake horse, but a truely real one to swinging around a newborn baby by its umbilical cord and then biting the cord in half leaving the whole room covered in blood, seeing his friend fall and break his leg to the point of the bone showing through his skin and then licking the blood from the wound. Sorry, but I did not find this worthy of a laugh. In closing, do not waste your money or your time on renting or watching this poor excuse for a movie. I work very hard for a living and yet a person of this caliber that I will not even classify as an actor is payed mega dollars for his so called talents.I wish I could give this movie a rating that was in the negative catagory, but it was not available. Stay away from it at all costs.

The film was meant to shock. It succeeded in doing so, and this was this films only success. Listening to the laughs in the audience during some of the most disturbing scenes I’d ever seen, I couldn’t help thinking about what our modern day North American society has been reduced to. The movie relies on disgusting scenes, foul language and really sick moral content for laughs. I have a great sense of humor. I always laugh at the corniest jokes, but the content was simply un-funny. Anyone entertained by this film probably enjoys Jerry Springer. After seeing it, I noticed that even the secular movie critics hated it. Tom Green’s sense of humor is appaling, he knows it and I’m sure he’s proud of it. He clearly needs some serious help. I’m embarrassed to say I went to see this film, only because I hadn’t heard much about it, but at least I can say I walked out. At least 10 others walked as well and were given their money back. There is nothing redeeming about this film at all. Nothing.

This film was nasty, but there was a message to it: Parents, love your children no matter how weird they are! If you look past all of the objectionable material, and I mean LOTS of it was SHOCKING, then you may be able to find a lot about this film that you would like. This may sound shocking to most people, but I thought it was a very sweet film. It is definitely not for everyone, though, so take warning.

I saw this movie with my son and I regret it. It had many disgusting scenes in it involving bestiality, oral sex, and gore. It even dared to poke fun at sexual abuse. In the movie, the lead character named Gord, gets into a dispute with his father. He lies to the police and tells them that his father molested his younger brother named Freddy. This is a joke in the movie that was certainly awful. I hated this movie with a passion, and as a Christian mother I am sorry that I ever saw this. We should have left during the first five minutes. Do not see this one at all.

This movie was not only the weirdest but the sickest movie I’ve ever seen. The graphic parts of peoples bodies and disgusting things that happened to innocent children and family members was gross. There was no nudity but the way Tom Green handled situations was stupid and disturbing. I laughed some of the time because some parts were funny but some of it wasn’t. There were 30+ F-words too. don’t waste your time.

AVOID THIS MOVIE AT ALL COSTS! This movie has to be the most disgustingly perverted movie out in the theatres! After reading about it at, I was shocked to even think that this was actually allowed in theatres! Tom Green needs Jesus in his life! Here is a list of things I found out about this so-called “film”—a man masturbates a live horse AND an elephant, the lead character in the movie has a paralyzed girlfriend that gets off on getting caned in her legs, there are many references to oral sex, and a very graphic scene in which the lead character’s father begs for his son to sodomize him (this scene contains nudity—the father’s bare behind). It also contains about 57 F-words, as well as many other profane words. DO NOT allow your children to see it! It is not for anyone else for that matter. Lets show Hollywood that trash like this will not be supported!

This movie is the climax of all Tom Green Movies. For all who were grossed out about “Road Trip” do not go see “Freddie Got Fingered.” The title of the movie is even sexually gross and demeaning. The whole movie is just gross sex scenes that are very popular with teenagers. Futhermore, many teens that are not Christians are not even seeing it, so therefore a Christian should not see it. There is no point of going right into temptations way when it could be avoided altogether. There is nothing to prove to anybody by going to this movie and then saying “oh I’m good I didn’t let the movie influence me.” Do not see this movie.

There was nothing good about this movie and it is perhaps the worst ever made. The whole film is sexually twisted. There is bestial masturbation, support of sexual child abuse, sodomy, the sexual content was innumerable. This film was also sexually violent. The main character slices up a moose and puts it on his head and then is hit by a semi. He licks a friend’s open wound, winks at suicide, about 70 f-words, lots of drinking and smoking, but the worse is yet to come. The main character bites a bloody baby’s umbilical cord and then swings the baby around by it splashing blood on everyone in the room. I don’t know how this film got an R rating!

This movie is an absolute waste of time and is not worth seeing at all! Steer clear from this one for sure!
This by far the worst movie I ever had to sit through. I don’t remember the last time I had to close my eyes as a matter of choice. I didn’t walk out after the first fifteen minutes because my friend and ride wanted to get there money’s worth. Huge mistake. I’ll never get this movie out of my head. I implore anyone with any values at all not to go see this. The stuff in this movie would turn a doctor’s stomach. This at the top of my list of worst movies of all time. I laughed twice. The theater laughed non-stop. This movie should be banned for obvious reasons. I’ve never been so offended in my life. I guess that worse the purpose of Tom Green when he impinged it.
