Freddy Got Fingered ★★★½


“Daddy would you like some sausage” Second viewing, a couple points down from a 70. Unsurprisingly, this is a little less hysterical on rewatch. Yet, me finding it not quite as funny notwithstanding, FREDDY GOT FINGERED remains matchless as the most singular and absurd film of its kind. One of the most unrelentingly belligerent cinematic experiences ever, as if the biggest joke of all is that in the end, you sat down and watched the movie from beginning to end. I presume the titular finger is symbolic of the one Green is clearly giving to the every disparaging member of audience here. We’re forced to watch as Gordy smashes, demeans, and shrieks his way into getting the last laugh. A classic.
