88 min     5.9     1999     USA


Deuce Bigalow is a less than attractive, down on his luck aquarium cleaner. One day he wrecks the house of a gigolo and needs quick money to repair it. The only way he can make it is to become a gigolo himself, taking on an unusual mix of female clients. He encounters a couple of problems, though. He falls in love with one of his unusual clients, and a sleazy police officer is hot on his trail.

Decent watch at very best, probably won't watch again, and can't recommend. I actually like Rob Schneider a bit, and the guy can certainly act, but it's like he got he's talent from a Monkey's Paw, there is usually some draw back. In this, it's where the movie systematically makes fun of people from anger management issues, to serious conditions, to amputees, and all of them lonely and possibly desperate, so it's extra sad. Yes, it's the premise of the movie that he's an unexpected gigolo with unexpected clients, but I'm not sure anyone was asking for this movie. All that aside, this is a alternating abuse humor / ridiculous escalation humor, and a lot of the movie is just Rob being exasperated with his own script. To top it off, it feels like there is one story line too many with the cop investigating him. The angry gigolo with WAY too many expensive things that he mistreats is plenty of antagonist. They definitely put the work in on the production side though, even incorporating a couple of matrix references that probably cost far more than warranted for the movie. I don't blame you if you do like this movie, but there has got to be something better to watch.
