When Deuce is being beaten up Claire, her shoes disappear for one shot. It happens just after he is kicked in the face three times to the music beat (still on at that time). When she does the spinning round kick she has no shoes on. After this kick they are back on again. It's only at the end of that scene that she takes them off asking Deuce not to tell Antoine about them. See more »

Look. See that red spot over there? That wasn't there this morning. I checked. You know what it is?
Maybe it's a rash. Something you got from jogging. How the hell do I know? Get it away from me.

which is as much a commentary on the state of American cinema as it is on the quality of this surprising film. Thoroughly enjoyable as long as you're not looking for One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Deuce Bigalow provides a deft blend of juvenille humor and inventive verbal humor and situational gags. I have to say that it has one of the funniest "reconcilation" scenes in a romantic comedy that I have seen in a long time. But the great thing about this movie is that Rob Schneider has created a couple of really memorable and unique characters. On top of that, there are many wonderful and touching moments hidden beneath the more obvious jokes and the many throwaway gags.
