When Deuce first meets Antoine and sees his weapon collection, Deuce says, "I collect Canadian quarters . . . I got about six of them." After his first "job" when he goes to the bar, his bill totals eleven dollars and fifty cents. He gives the bartender (an uncredited Norm MacDonald) "Ten, and six quarters", presumably his Canadian quarter collection and the total take from his first "job". See more »

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!")
