Overview

Former Saturday Night Live cast member Rob Schneider stars in this comedy as Marvin Mage, a wimpy nebbish whose lifelong dreams of becoming a police officer are thwarted by his diminutive stature. But when Marvin is critically injured in an auto wreck, deranged scientist Dr. Wilder Michael Caton uses various animal body parts to save his life, leaving the patient with the stamina and physical skills of the organ donors. Marvin quickly gains fame as a supercop, but he's also left with all of the embarrassing animal instincts and urges that accompany his new powers -- a serious threat to his blooming romance with new girlfriend Rianna Colleen Haskell. The Animal co-stars John C. McGinley, Edward Asner, Norm Macdonald, and Cloris Leachman.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
A comedy without fangs, The Animal actually has a strong concept. The film attempts to poke fun at how helpless humans are to control their animal urges, and occasionally it hits its mark. The scene where Marvin (Rob Schneider) must continually excuse himself from dinner with his girlfriend in order to attend to one of the base instincts she is triggering in him provides a clue as to where this film could have gone. But avoiding a box-office harming "R" rating was more important than playing this Darwinian concept out to its fullest. Schneider has a sweet, likable quality in the film, as does Survivor contestant Colleen Haskell, making her film debut as his animal-loving girlfriend, but neither is given a real character to play. Not extreme enough for the gags to flower, nor written well enough to explore the romantic angle, The Animal settles into bland inoffensiveness.
New York Times - Stephen Holden
Adding to this transcendently dumb but very funny comedy...is that Marvin [Schneider] just happens to be the world's least likely candidate for bestiality.... In its goofy way, the movie addresses the moral contradictions of a world in which you have a growing animal-rights movement on one side and a mania for professional wrestling on the other.... Its relative modesty lends Mr. Schneider's deft, ingenuous performance an unexpected glow of innocence.
Los Angeles Times - Kevin Thomas
The Animal is an outrageous and imaginative summer comedy aimed primarily at young males, but it is often so funny that it may well connect to a broader audience... A lot of the fun in watching this movie derives from discovering how deftly Schneider gets away with so much.

    What?

    This movie was not interesting or funny. It just plain sucked. This review was obviously written by someone from Barnes and Noble who's trying to make every product sound good. Don't waste your time on this film.
