A Man Bitch of a movie.It would be a miSTEAK to miss it.
16 February 2001 | by (Bedfordshire,England) – See all my reviews

I had waited a long time to watch this film after seeing the hilarious trailers that were shown on tv when this first came out on the cinema. I'm glad to say i wasn't disappointed as this film is very funny indeed. Rob Schneider stars as Deuce Bigalow a fish tank cleaner who stumbles into the male prostitution through cleaning a gigalo's fish tank. While looking after his apartment he accidently smashes the very expensive tank. the only way to pay for a new one is to do his own stint of of being a male madame!the problem is it is at the very bottom end of the market. He rents his body to the strangest of female clients ,who really are the stars of the film,with the funniest of consequences. Some of the film is a bit silly and not funny, the blind woman bit of the movie is just not funny and really plays no part in the film also i think the woman with tarets syndrome could have been played by someone with a bit more personality but apart from that a very,very funny film. 8 out of 10.
