This is the comedy of a new kind. For once a comedy that tries to rely on
new jokes, instead of just a new Naked Gun or Hot Shot. I mean just think
a concept so whacky like "A guy cleaning fish tanks that becomes a man
whore", or the fact that a (he)pimp calls himself a "male madame", drops
food in a jacussi and still eats it!
This is so far out - and therefore inventive - that it works 100%. A comedy to die for that for once is funny! 10/10
Among a huge list in 1999 of comedies (American Pie, Bowfinger, Dogma, and South Park topping that list), Deuce Bigaow has to be included. It is a original comedy about a fish man (Rob Schnieder) who becomes a man-prostitute in order to pay for a 6,000 dollar tank. What follows in the film are some of the best and most outrageous antics to come from a SNL type of character movie. The premise sounds dumb, to be sure (as most others are), but Schnieder makes this worth watching with his consistently funny performance. Norm McDonald makes a cameo. A-
my friend thought it was hilarious. occasionally I laughed, but mostly I yawned. you ended up rolling your eyes at some parts that you knew were supposed to be funny. guys should see 'deuce,' especially if the movie's message hits home, but I can't sincerely recommend this to females.
Rob Schneider is hilarious. You may or may not like him, but he's a natural at comedy, the facial expressions, the mimicking, his timing...anyways he stars in this late 90's casual comedy as the town's big fat loser, and I couldn't in just a few lines explain the difference between this and the seemingly infinite host of other similar mainstream disposable comedies, if not by just saying: this is actually really funny. The movie-makers, besides creating a story that holds up well and develops smoothly, really instilled a particular sense of humor rather than forced cheap and tasteless comedy so often served up in these parts of the Hollywood spectrum. And the film is consistent: the entire thing is constantly funny, from beginning to end, with some parts a bit more gratuitous and others downright hilarious. But overall, this is a complete comedy with an obvious but actually beautiful morality at the end, and if you go into this just wanting to have fun, there's really good fun to be had.

Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo (1999): Dir: Mike Mitchell / Cast: Rob Schneider, William Forsythe, Eddie Griffin, Gail O'Grady, Oded Fehr: Idiotic dog show starring Rob Schneider as Deuce Bigalow, a fish tank cleaner assigned to watch a gigolo's house. He nearly burns it down destroying a $6000 fish tank. To replace it he becomes a gigolo himself meeting an odd assortment of women including one with an amputated leg whom he actually likes. Very pathetic and often predictable with director Mike Mitchell wisely focusing on the individual women despite the fact that they are seen as props for lame jokes. In one sequence Deuce and a woman defy the law of gravity, which doesn't work story wise or humour wise. As Bigalow, Schneider is hardly sympathetic and his nude fish tank cleaning scene doesn't help matters. William Forsythe plays a cop who threatens Bigalow with his thin penis when he learns that his wife is among his visitation list. Eddie Griffin and Gail O'Grady also appear in flat supporting roles. Oded Fehr plays the male prostitute whose fish tank Deuce destroys. Fehr spends much of the film off camera, which means he hopefully fled the set. It seems to address the idea that being a gigolo will hook someone up with beautiful women when in reality, there is no warning as to who will be ringing next. This film is a male fantasy infested by lame writing and stupidity. Score: 3 / 10
Deuce Bigalow (Rob Schneider) is a bumbling clueless fish-expert
aquarium cleaner that no woman likes. He cleans male gigolo Antoine's
aquarium. Antoine is going on a trip and Deuce is asked to take care of
his beloved sick fish. He destroys the tank and needs $6k in 3 weeks to
replace it. He tries his hand in the gigolo business and attracts pimp
T.J. Hicks (Eddie Griffin). Deuce becomes a highly specialized
man-whore taking on unusual clients.
This is a really stupid comedy and it kinda works. Rob Schneider is a sleazy clueless idiot but not the hateful one that he sometimes plays. Eddie Griffin is hilarious. It also features Amy Poehler as Ruth with Tourettes. The romance with Arija Bareikis is cute. I understand critics who ridicule the movie's idiocy but I laughed. It's that simple.
Tourette's Syndrome shouldn't be funnyI'm sure it's very distressing
for those inflictedbut try keeping a straight face during the
Tourette's scene in Deuce Bigalow Male Gigolo
. it's nigh on
impossible. While this film might be totally crass and unsophisticated
silliness from start to finish, and occasionally scrapes its laughs
from the bottom of the barrel (or, in some cases, a water-snail tank),
it still manages to be a hugely enjoyable way to waste an evening.
Rob Schneider plays Deuce, a professional fish-tank cleaner who unwittingly enters the man-whoring business after an unfortunate fish-tank related accident while house-sitting for a gigolo leaves him needing to find $6000 in the space of a few weeks. Of course, being far from an Adonis, Deuce doesn't have much of a say about the standard of his clientèle, and there we have the movie's main joke: all of his customers have something wrong with them. Narcolepsy, gigantism, obesity, uncontrollable swearing, and missing limbs: anything goes and even though it's all incredibly un-PC, it's extremely hard not to find funny.
In fact, Deuce Bigalow Male Gigolo delivers so much unashamedly low-brow hilarity that I'm even willing to forgive its star Rob Schneider for his part in the Judge Dredd debacle of 1995. And that's saying something.
'You Don't Mess With the Zohan' was the first movie that I have seen
that has Rob Schneider in it.So basically,I don't have to tell you that
'Deuce Bigalow:Male Gigolo' is the second.Schneider stars as,and does a
good job as Deuce Bigalow,who was fired from his job while cleaning a
giant fish aquarium naked.One day,he meets a gigolo named Antoine,who
has a sick fish and calls upon Deuce to watch over the house and the
fish while he is gone.But Deuce breaks Antoines expensive fish tank and
must pay for it before Antoine comes back.The only option he has is to
become a gigolo,which is a fancy word for man-whore.He goes around town
and prostitutes himself for some quick cash.He dates a 8-foot tall
woman,a really fat lady,and even a woman who has touretts syndrome.All
goes well until he falls in love with one of his clients,who has only
This is a raunchy comedy that sets a whole new standard for gross-out humor that will have you dying with laughter.Everyone should thank Rob Schneider for doing his role in this movie,because if he didn't,then the movie probably wouldn't have been as good.But if Adam Sandler was in it,then it still would've been pretty funny.
This is without a doubt Rob Schieders best film. You can interpret this
comment as you wish based upon what you think of the actor. Rob
Schneider's films are never going to be cinematic master pieces but
then again he does not try make movies like this. I must confess I do
have a bit of a soft spot for Rob Schneinder, I have respect for anyone
who can deliberately make an arse of themselves on the big screen. I
think Deuce Bigalow is better than Schneider's other films as it has a
stronger plot, you actually the movie is always going somewhere. This
is in contrast to some of his other films where it feels like the movie
is just a bunch of gags tied together. Although Deuce Bigalow is mainly
a gross out film, it does have a softer side to it which is often hard
to pick, which gives a bit more substance to the film.
This a good movie to watch if you want to have some cheap laughs and to feel good at the end of the movie. This movie is original and has plenty of memorable. However the idea was only good enough for one film, and is was disappointing that they made a ordinary sequel, probably in the pursuit of money.
