MY PERSONAL RATING: 3 ½ OUT OF 5
The jokes are a bit juvenile through this, sure. That's to be expected with a Rob Schneider flick. If you want a wonderful script and Oscar-winning production, this isn't the movie for you (it cracks me up that people complain about the production and script on a movie like this, which revels in the fact that its sole purpose in life is to snatch as much cheap laughter as possible).
Some jokes are even a bit overused and cliched (see Amy Poehler as Ruth, the girl with Tourette's Syndrome), but they make me laugh. The part when Deuce and Ruth are in the convertible and she starts uncontrollably shouting obscenities at the couple in the car next to them shouldn't be funny at all, but I still laugh.
The scene where he's talking to the valet in the mens' room (who turns out to be his dad) while someone experiences a rather noisy, disgusting poop in the stall behind them shouldn't be funny at all, but I still laugh.
The disturbing incidents in which TJ picks up and eats a tomato and a scoop of ice cream from the water in the hot tub that he and Deuce soaking in shouldn't be funny at all, but I still laugh (although it's laced with a slight cringe in these cases).
And, of course, the ambiguously gay fish tank builder (Neil, I think is his name) makes all sorts of comments that lead to chuckling: "I know, I'm up to my bicep in it!" or "Look, I don't wanna flip you over and do you dry here..."
Not exactly comedic genius displayed in this movie, but clever and plentiful enough to ensure laughter.
A nice addition to a comedy collection.
Deuce (Schneider) has just been fired from his job at cleaning tanks, after an accident. Then he gets a job looking after some mate's fish. It's not that easy, because when he breaks the fishes tank, he must repay $6000 before the huge guy comes back! Eek - so in order to do so, he must become a gigolo, and wonder how much trouble Robby will get in this time?
I don't recommend this to all people, because some might find it offense, but if your looking for a laugh and have nothing to do - see this cool little flick!
Rob Schneider turns in a fine performance as Deuce Bigalow, a fish tank cleaner with a dead end job and no romantic prospects until he is asked to house sit for a "man-whore". After damaging the house he has to make $6,000 quickly and turns to-you guessed it-male prostitution. This plot opens up a number of possibilities and almost succeeds in answering the question of what kind of woman would want the services of a male prostitute. Deuce is paired subsequently with an overeater, a woman with a growth disorder, a woman with narcolepsy, and a woman with Tourette's syndrome. Along the way he falls for a woman who also has an imperfection-a prosthetic leg. Unfortunately this woman doesn't know Deuce is a male prostitute who was hired to go out with her by her friends. I won't tell you how the picture ends other than saying its very predictable.
What I find particularly noteworthy about this picture is that it uses afflictions as comedy fodder but somehow manages to do so without ridiculing or denigrating, a nice touch for this kind of movie. The humor sometimes frequently gets kind of childish and silly, but then again those who purchase or rent "Deuce Bigalow" usually know what sort of humor to expect from a movie involving a former SNL cast member. It's a good one to rent, but given the predictability of the plot and the rather tepid level of the gags I would definitely not purchase this one, especially on DVD.
