Freddy Got Fingered

The New York Times
The movie's comic heart consists of a series of indescribably loopy, elaborately conceived happenings that are at once rigorous and chaotic, idiotic and brilliant.
The earnestness of some of the drama in the only deceptively unsophisticated narrative may be more shocking than any of the gross-outs.
Not since Andy Kaufman's reign of terror has a supposed funnyman been so self-indulgently persistent in testing a fan's patience.
New York Daily News
Exhaustingly manic but curiously unfunny movie.
It feels manufactured to be suitable for mass consumption.
Do not bring children to this movie unless you want them to have nightmares for weeks.
In a sense, this is a horror film, worse than anything Andy Kaufman could dream up, in which Green tries to outgross himself.
Green, who looks like a chinless, hollow-eyed pederast at the best of times, is simply out of his league here, and the fact that the film drags interminably when it's actually a very average 90 minutes long betrays its essential emptiness.
This movie doesn't scrape the bottom of the barrel. This movie isn't the bottom of the barrel. This movie isn't below the bottom of the barrel. This movie doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence with barrels.
