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

This was the only Happy Madison film that uses the recurring phrases "You can do it" and "That's a huge bitch". See more »
When Sgt. Sisk starts the hunt for Marvin, he is wearing his uniform, a hat, and a bullet-proof vest. Later he is wearing camouflage pants, a black shirt w/black cap and camouflage paint on his face. He never had time to change. See more »

At the end of the credits you can hear "That's a huge bitch", which is the same thing heard when "Deuce Bigalow" (played by Rob Schneider) was with the Six Foot Woman. See more »
Scenes which were deleted include:
The doctor explaining the differant animal parts he put in Marvin. After mentioning the lion with the attention deficit disorder, we see it fall out of the tree in the background.
Marvin wakes up in Dimples doghouse and walks out naked holding the water bowl over his front. He then runs off to his house, again exposing his hair covered behind to the shocked neighbor. (The trailer shows this scene with him wearing underwear.)
Marvin returns to work where he can overhear everyone's conversations, then smells/hears a coworker fart and hastles him for it.
The doctor talks to Marvin more about the animal traits, feeds him a fish, and makes him jump through a firey hoop.
Being a big fan of Rob Schneider had me wanting to go to this movie from the time I first heard about it. I really don't know what to expect when the movie is produced through Adam Sandler. Sometime it's a hit , sometimes a miss. This movie falls somewhere in the middle. We follow Marvin as he tries to get his big break and become a policeman. Standing in his way are other cops, and also his lack of physical prowess. That is until he has a horrendous accident, and is repaired by a mad scientist played by Michael Caton. He suddenly has the abilities of different kinds of animals, and also there instincts. That's the funny part about this movie as he tries to control these conflicting feelings going through his head. Colleen Haskell plays his love interest in the movie, and she comes off as the sweet, innocent she is supposed to be. Her main goal in life seems to be to save as many animals as possible. This is one more in a fine line of comedic performances for Rob Schneider who seems to have found his niche playing the underdog role.
