Storyline

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 Dean Kish, Comingsoon.net

Trivia

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 (2001) 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 »

Goofs

When Sergeant Sisk, played by John C McGinley, enters the Mayor's party in full dress uniform, he is wearing police ribbons & awards of the Los Angeles City Police Department along with US Military ribbons and awards. The first ribbon below his name tag and to the left is the Police Meritorious Service Medal, the second medal is the Police Star, the first green, yellow and red ribbon in the second row is the Police Distinguished Service Medal followed by an unknown ribbon and another unknown ribbon. The third row left is the US Marine Corps Pack Leader ribbon, the middle one is unidentifiable, with the third one being the the US Army Service ribbon. The police medals should be in this order: the Police Distinguished Service Medal, the Police Meritorious Service Medal followed by the Police Meritorious Unit Citation followed by the Police Star. The order presented in error is: two, four, one, three. See more »

Exactly what I expected...
1 June 2001 | by (Alpharetta, GA) – See all my reviews

Let me preface by saying I am a fan of Rob Schneider, and of Adam Sandler. I enjoyed Deuce Bigalow, and all (except for Big Daddy) of Adam Sandler's movies. So I basically was expecting some (Ok, a lot) of low-brow humor, a decent plot to keep rolling through, and to laugh throughout the movie. This movie provided just that. It wasn't the greatest comedy in the world, or a landmark motion picture, and it wasn't made to be that. Colleen Haskell's skills at acting reminded me of when they put a "famous" non-actor on Saturday Night Live, and don't give them too much to do in the skits. She's only in the movie probably a total of 15 minutes, but does what they ask of her, and does a decent job of it. The movie is a hoot, and doesn't actually stoop to every joke being a f**t joke. I laughed about every 3-4 minutes, and enjoyed the ending as well. If you're expecting something similar to Deuce Bigalow, you won't be disappointed.
