From the producers of the comedy smash Deuce Bigalow comes The Animal, about a small, wimpy Marvin, who doesn't have what it takes to fulfill his lifelong dream to be a cop. But his luck changes when he's critically injured in a car accident and a deranged scientist secretly uses animal organs to rebuild him. Energized by his new parts, Marvin leaves his weakness behind and achieves instant fame as a supercop. Now a hero, life is going great for Marvin until his animal instincts start taking over his body at all the wrong times. Marvin struggles to remain civilized and be a perfect gentleman with his new love, Rianna in a series of hilarious situations that would drive any animal crazy. Written by

In June, 2001 Newsweek revealed that print ads for at least four movies released by Columbia Pictures, including this one and A Knight's Tale contained glowing comments from a film reviewer who did not exist. The fake critic, "David Manning," was actually a friend by the same name in Connecticut who had agreed to let his Columbia ad-marketing friend use his name. Manning was misrepresented as a reviewer for a newspaper in the small Connecticut town of Ridgefield. See more »

Hilarious, SNL Castmember Makes a Good Movie, First in a While
I will be honest with you, I went to see The Animal for Norm Macdonald. But what I saw was one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. Not only is Colleen Haskell a pretty good actress, but Rob Schneider was even funnier than in Deuce!!! And Did I mention Norm's line "I'm not gonna be in a mob to kill a black dude" Funny!!!
