Maybe we should take care of a little business first.
If you prefer.
I don't have a set price or anything, but I have been getting ten dollars.
Well that's my going rate. But I'm willing to negotiate.
That's funny. But the price is five hundred.
You're gonna pay me five hundred dollars?

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.
