Product Description

He might not look like much, but it's what's inside that counts. Comic genius Rob Schneider (Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, Big Daddy), TV's Survivor Colleen Haskell, John C. McGinley (Any Given Sunday,The Rock) and Edward Asner (The Bachelor, JFK) star in the most outrageous and hysterical comedy ofthe year. When evidence clerk Marvin Mange (Schneider) answers a 911 call of a burglary in progress, his dream of one day becoming a cop seems to be coming true. But a freak car accident en route to the crime leaves Marvin and his dream a shattered mess. When Marvin awakens a week later, he finds that a deranged scientist secretly used animal organs to rebuild his broken body. Energized by his new and improved parts, Marvin achieves instant fame as a super-cop until his animal instincts start taking over his body at all the wrong times. And when he finds himself falling for the lovely and sexy Rianna (Haskell), it's animal magnetism at its craziest in the funniest and wildest comedy of the yea

You expect cheap gags from a Rob Schneider movie, and The Animal delivers in the best possible way. Schneider plays Marvin Mange, a schlub of a police file clerk who drives off a cliff and is horribly mangled--only to wake up not only whole, but feeling better than he ever has in his life. He suddenly develops strange powers that lead to him being praised as a super cop. Unfortunately, his powers are the result of a scientist's bizarre experiment--and before long, some side effects start to take over his life. It's hard to put a finger on Schneider's appeal, but he's got something. He can get away with tasteless jokes about bestiality and bodily functions because... well... he's sort of helplessly sympathetic, and somehow this actually makes him funny. --Bret Fetzer

Critics have pretty much universally trashed all movies written by/starring SNL alumni from the early '90s, but 'The Animal' sits up there with 'Billy Madison' and 'Happy Gilmore' as a solidly absurdist comedy. While not a classic, there's enough sustained "smart" dumb humor to make it definitely worthwhile. I've seen too many movies that catered towards the Lowest Common Denominator at every turn. While this one was definitely sold as such, it's much more a case of dumb humor for smart people.
And that Colleen is too darn cute. Her awkward performance was saved in the editing (watch as no dialogue shots stay on her for too long... if at all), but the camera definitely loves her.

The Animal gets 4 stars from me just for making me laugh, out loud, with all the rest of the audience in the theater. And besides, who doesn't think Colleen Haskell is just too cute not to be on the big screen? I'm not someone who typically goes in for Jim Carey or Adam Sandler slapstick, Animal House fart-joke humor, but this one got to me. Its funny. Check it out. Rob's dolpin act and goat seducing scenes are utterly hilarious. I'm sure I'll buy this one on DVD when it comes out.

Who doesn't like slap-stick comedies? Of course they're stupidly fun! I like Adam Sandler type movies and Rob Schneider, is funny! There are some that think these are too dumb to enjoy, but oh well! I love my SNL comedy guys and enjoy time to relax, just laugh!

Rob Schneider is the star and much of it is silliness, but, silliness in fun. When a loser who works for the police department, because he always wanted to be a cop, learns his favorite Chinese place is being robbed he takes it upon himself to respond to the call. No one else was around so why not? But this leads to one of the most comical car accidents ever which leaves him in need of medical attention. Fortunately he is found, his life save by the experimental, radical techniques of the man who found him... A veterinarian using animal bits to make him well. From there you're on your own! It has numerous special features and it is subtitled in English for the deaf. But not all special features are subtitled.

The Animal had a really stupid plot, but I thought I would go and rent it anyway. I found that the movie had the humor, but was lacking a storyline, that seemed reasonable.
The Animal is about a looser, who wants to be a cop. But every time he takes the final exam (the physical part), he always fails. He cant seem to get a date, or get any respect from anyone. (Including a group of kids at the police station, which is hilarious). Then some man finds him after a horrific accident. And replaces most of his bodies parts with animal parts. Thus making him able to run, jump, swim, hear, and smell like an animal.
This film isnt too bad, but its not worth buy. One viewing is enough. If you want to see a good Rob Schneider film, go and rent "Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigalow". Most of The Animal is predictable.

Looks like AMMY's done it again. They've linked ANIMAL, an urban drama with an all African-American and Hispanic cast, to THE ANIMAL, a silly farce with Rob Schneider. My review is on the latter.

.
THE ANIMAL (2001) is a minor comedy (rated 4.6 at IMDb) that stars Rob Schneider, plus the lovely Colleen Haskell, John C. McGinley (as a jealously villainous top cop), Ed Asner (as chief of police), also demented cameos from Adam Sandler and Norm McDonald.

Here, Rob is Marvin Mange, a police department property room attendant who wants to be a real cop, but he's too feeble to pass the rigorous field test. After his car rolls off a cliff and tumbles down a hill it's left crushed. Marvin barely survives the accident. Rendered unconscious and bodily broken, he's rescued by a scientist who operates and saves Marvin's life with organ transplants from various animals.

Now this new police proby is able to sniff out drugs hidden in smugglers' butts, outrun a horse and swim like a dolphin, plus he has superhuman jumping and hearing abilities. Marvin's also having problems remembering he's still mostly human (wants to mate with a goat, eat hands-free like a ravenous dog, etc.).

It's cute, occasionally amusing but forgettable.
