Storyline

Deuce Bigalow is a less than attractive, down on his luck aquarium cleaner. One day he runs into a male gigolo who asks him to look after his precious fish while he is away on business. However, he wrecks the house and needs quick money to repair it. The only way he can make it is to become a gigolo himself, taking on an unusual mix of female clients. He encounters a couple of problems, though. He falls in love with one of his unusual clients, and a sleazy police officer his hot on his trail. Written by <jgp3553@excite.com>

22 June 2000 | by neo__-theone-See all my reviews

This movie is NOT just another SNL character movie! It was a laugh riot! I was a little afraid to see this but my girlfriend talked me into it and boy was I happy I let her do it!! I spent the whole 80 minutes laughing. I would highly recommend this film to anyone who likes comedies!
