While in his teens, Donny fathered a son, Todd, and raised him as a single parent up until Todd's 18th birthday. Now, after not seeing each other for years, Todd's world comes crashing down when Donny resurfaces just before Todd's wedding.
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 (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 »

I just want to thank everyone who sent me food and letters of support, especially the mentally handicapped child who sent me this sweet book of poems.
She read my poems.

This movie is pretty funny. The gags are spread throughout the movie, so you'll be laughing the whole time you're watching. I know I couldn't stop laughing. This is a great movie that deserves to be seen by anyone who loves comedies. The ending was predictable but it was still a good ending. It's just as good as the other happy madison movies (Little Nicky,Joe Dirt, Deuce Bigalow)and if you like those movies, you'll like this as well. Overall,it's better than joe dirt, but not as good as little nicky or deuce bigalow.
