Deuce Bigalow Male Gigolo strikes again. This time around, he doesn't have you
baying at the moon with his humor, but cooks up some weird comedic scenes that
at most times can only qualify as potty humor.
Mangey Marvin Mange (Rob Schneider) is a wannabe cop afflicted by the debilitating disease of loser-itis, working at the local police station as an evidence officer. Unfortunately for him and the audience, he can't get through his cop exams, and when his body gets horridly mangled in a freak accident, the local mad scientist replaces his body organs with animal parts.
Now with about a thousand different animal components in him, ol' poodle hair is nothing more than totally driven by beastly instincts, to hump, haw and mark his territory at the drop of a paw.
Ready for action anytime, Schneider runs like a cheetah, dives like a dolphin and generally looks around to ease his over-horny instincts in as many possible ways as the censor board would allow him. His main aim in the flick is to keep himself out of trouble that might land him behind bars (of a zoo, that is).
The rest of the flick reeks of the usual loser kinda stuff that Schneider loves to do over and over again in his movies. There are a few bright sparks in this raunch fest, like Guy Torry, one of Schneider's friends. He's a black guy who complains of 'reverse racism' - that people treat him too nicely. Starring as Schneider's love interest is debutante Collen Haskell, who is as emotive as a pair of hush puppies.
There really is nothing in this one to write about. It is like the stars of Animal Planet coming to life. It does have some funny parts, but chances are you would have really seen 'em on TV already. Schneider seems to really enjoy doing this loser stuff, a la Adam Sandler. But he does it in such a pathetic manner, you can't help but feel sorry for the poor poodle-faced guy. You really don't have to be as wise as an owl to kinda develop a soft corner for him.
In toto, the flick is okay, and it does deliver some rather lame stuff. We really
could have done with some better laffs, but hell, it's not everyday you come across
a comedy which actually needs to have jokes in it.
