Overview

Yet another Saturday Night Live alumnus makes his bid for big-screen success as Rob Schneider, best remembered as the "Making copies!" guy, tackles his first leading role in this broad comedy. Deuce (Rob Schneider) earns a meager living as a professional fish tank cleaner until he's asked to housesit for a gigolo. Deuce mistakenly answers the gigolo's business phone and finds himself having sex with a woman he's never met and getting paid for it (not a bad deal, since women generally avoid Deuce like the Ebola virus). It's not long before Deuce learns that there's more to selling your body than one might expect: for example, being re-styled by your pimp or having to explain your new source of income when the owner of the house gets home. Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo was the first feature film produced by Adam Sandler's production company, Happy Madison; Sandler himself makes a cameo appearance, while Oded Fehr, William Forsythe, Eddie Griffin, and Marlo Thomas highlight the supporting cast.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Adam Goldberg
The Adam Sandler school of comedy may be considered absurdly lowbrow, but it is still astonishingly popular with the young generation. Sandler assumes the role of producer in Deuce Bigalo: Male Gigolo, a lewd, crude, and candidly rude comedy starring SNL alumni Rob Schneider. Fans of Sandler's madcap body of work will feel right at home with Deuce, a mildly funny and occasionally charming film with some memorable Farrelly brothers-esque moments. The narrative comes to life when Schneider cleverly confronts the dating scene and lampoons comedy conventions, most notably in a scene involving a narcoleptic date. However, a majority of the humor in the narrative consists of in-your-face flatulence, sex, and scatological gags. The film soon becomes a one-note affair of tired bathroom humor featuring an array of derogatory and stereotypical jokes involving the obese, the blind, and amputees. Rob Schneider has proven himself to be a successful comedian, but he simply lacks the charm of a leading man and has trouble carrying this movie. Still, the script by Schneider and Harris Goldberg does create enough laughs to make Deuce an inconsistently entertaining film that may please the dedicated Sandler aficionado.
