Although spelled differently, the name "Berguita" (Kate's roommate) is a Spanish slang word for "little penis", this being referred several times by William Forsythe's character See more »
At the fish store, Alison gets her entire chest wet, logo and all, while bending over to get something out of the tank for Deuce. In the next scene everything is dry except the immediate area around her breasts. See more »
I should have told you right from the start. But I was afraid.
Afraid of what?
Afraid that a girl as wonderful as you could never fall for a guy who cleans fish tanks, 'cause that's who I really am. This whole gigolo thing was just a mistake. But I'm glad it happened 'cause I never would have met you. I never would have known what love was. I'm sorry. I'm not perfect.
I'm not perfect either.
Yes you are. You're perfect in every way. I knew it the moment I met you.

I hate to admit this but I liked this movie, at least the first time I saw it. Yes, it's crass, crude, stupid and whatever but it's generally likable and a funny movie in many spots.
Rob Schneider does a fine job playing this amiable loser. Several scenes are just laugh-out-loud funny. The female interest, Arija Bareikis, is not someone I was familiar with but I liked her wholesome looks. William Forsythe plays the villain and, of course, he's over-the-top. The film had a nice soundtrack, a lot of familiar rock tunes.
As with most modern comedies, this gets carried and a little stupid at the end but, overall the film is good low-grade fun (and I mean "low grade!")
