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 »

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!")
