Trivia

Although spelled differently, the name "Berguita" (Kate's roommate) is a Spanish slang word for "little penis", this being referred several times by Detective Chuck Fowler (William Forsythe). See more »

Goofs

After Kate finds out Deuce was paid to originally date her, he is plunging a toilet for the second time apparently searching for a flushed fish. He plunges and a piece of excrement flies into the bowl. When he hands the bowl to the child, the plunged substance is missing from the fish bowl. See more »

Quotes

Deuce Bigalow: If man-whoring has taught me anything, it's that most women are as unhappy with their entire body as you are with your small penis.
Detective Fowler: Thin penis.
Deuce Bigalow: Whatever. While you're worried about your penis...
Detective Fowler: Thin penis.
Deuce Bigalow: Women are worried about their height, their weight, their giant feet, the stream of obscenities that could burst through their mouth at any second. If you make a woman feel good about herself, it really doesn't matter what's wrong with you.
Detective Fowler: Even if it's really really thin? We're talkin' ...

I Have To Admit I Enjoyed This
9 May 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

I hate to admit this but I liked this movie, at least the first time I saw it. Yes, it's crass, crude, stupid and whatever but it's generally likable and a funny movie in many spots.

Rob Schneider does a fine job playing this amiable loser. Several scenes are just laugh-out-loud funny. The female interest, Arija Bareikis, is not someone I was familiar with but I liked her wholesome looks. William Forsythe plays the villain and, of course, he's over-the-top. The film had a nice soundtrack, a lot of familiar rock tunes.

As with most modern comedies, this gets carried and a little stupid at the end but, overall the film is good low-grade fun (and I mean "low grade!")
