Movie Info

Yet another Saturday Night Live alumnus makes his bid for big-screen success as Rob Schneider, best remembered as the "Making copies!" guy, tackles his first leading role in this broad comedy. Deuce (Rob Schneider) earns a meager living as a professional fish tank cleaner until he's asked to housesit for a gigolo. Deuce mistakenly answers the gigolo's business phone and finds himself having sex with a woman he's never met and getting paid for it (not a bad deal, since women generally avoid Deuce

Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo is just another in a long line of failed post-Saturday Night Live efforts.

Rob Schneider certainly has what it takes to play a doofy, soft-bodied poseur hustler, but this dim farce makes the mistake of setting him up with a series of tricks even lowlier and more pathetic than he is.

What in heaven's name were the geniuses at Disney thinking when they green-lighted this moronic, mean-spirited excuse for a comedy?

Raunchy prostitution comedy is lazy and crude.

A no-brainer in the worst sense.

There are parts of it that are genuinely cute, and given the level of raunch, it's almost innocent.

Sure, it's a non-stop cavalcade of tasteless jokes and crude sexual humor, but there's nothing wrong with that. I like tasteless jokes and crude sexual humor.

A hopeless crap-fest of crude humor that seems aimed specifically at drunk college students.

Court-ordered chemical castration isn't enough -- someone needs to take away Rob Schneider's SAG card.

The only thing that changes is the star: Adam Sandler, Chris Farley, David Spade or Rob Schneider. Other than that they're the same movie over and over again.

Bizarre comedy of errors is surprisingly good-natured, but not that good.

This movie is pretty stupid. If you like stupid then go, but don't say I didn't warn you. Adam Sandler fans might dig this one

Deuce Bigalow, like the SNL routines it models itself after, starts off funny but doesn't know when to end.

January 1, 2000 Full Review Source: Citysearch

The film has no energy, no laughs, no purpose.

January 1, 2000 Full Review Source: Oregonian

I will say this, there are parts of the film that are funny, disturbingly funny but not enough to bail the film out of the watery grave its heading for.

Audience Reviews for Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo

Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo is one of those films that had the potential to being really funny, and memorable. Unfortunately, the film was doomed right from the start by casting an unfunny, talentless "comedian" in the lead. This is a stupid, unimpressive comedy that fails to deliver genuine laughter. This is a poorly conceived comedy that hasn't aged well. The jokes aren't good whatsoever, as a matter of fact the way the jokes are presented in the film, and it's almost desperate. The filmmakers clearly can't make anything work with this comedy, and they just create humorless, tasteless repetitive jokes in order to create "good" gags. Unfortunately, it doesn't work, and this film is simply dull, unimpressive crap. Deuce Bigalow is the type of comedy of which the jokes get old very quickly. This is a film that Hollywood never should have green lit, but they'll make anything to make a quick buck. I hated this film, and felt was a waste of time. Rob Schneider is not funny, and it's with films like this that you wonder how can he still find work? He's a terrible comedian, and plays on one character in every film he does. This is one comedy that has unimpressive, dull comedic gags, and the film is a total crap fest from start to finish. If you're looking for a hilarious film, Deuce Bigalow isn't that film. This is a poorly conceived and completely forgettable comedy. Since its release, there has been far better comedies out there, and Deuce Bigalow is simply put an awful film from start to finish with no redeeming aspects that can salvage how bad it really is.

Saw it again. Very funny movie, always makes me laugh no matter how many times I've seen it. Good story and nice ending. This is totally a movie just to laugh so don't take it seriously.

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.
