Los Angeles Times
An outrageous and imaginative summer comedy.
80
Transcendently dumb but very funny comedy.
70
Genial rather than an affront to good taste. It's also pretty darn funny.
63
Schneider, with his cherub curls and scrawny physique, adopts a pussycat persona that engenders goodwill.

Salon.com
If The Animal -- co-written by Schneider and Tom Brady -- never quite gets fired up, at least it chugs along efficiently on its mildly inspired ridiculousness.
50
Chicago Reader
Mild gross-out comedy integrates a non sequitur -- a running joke made by a sidekick -- into the plot, providing some payoff.
50
New York Post
Isn't quite up to the comic standard of Rob Schneider's 1999 hit "Deuce Bigalow, Male Gigolo."
50
Slate
A perfectly decent second-banana, Rob Schneider, has been over-optimistically elevated to the top of the bunch.
40
The movie's selling point is Schneider acting goofy, chewing on worms, making goo-goo eyes at a she-goat and licking his private parts.
25
Christian Science Monitor
Has amusing bits of social satire, but they're crowded out of the stable by lots of bathroom and barnyard humor.
