The comic blithely stumbles through the rude slapstick as if he thinks the movie's real lead will show at any second and allow him to sink gratefully into second-banana status again.

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

If Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo were required to take a standardized test, its IQ would plot out lower than Jose Lima's ERA.

Just saying the name of this movie makes you feel stupid.

Rob Schneider, its star, and Adam Sandler, its producer, keep finding new and wondrous answers to that limbo stick question, 'How low can you go?'

Lowbrow humor.

An inconsistently funny film that draws heavily and obviously on recent successful low-brow comedies like There's Something About Mary and Austin Powers.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

The jokes are unabashedly pitched at 12-year-old boys, with flatulence, masturbation and excretions as the leading themes.

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

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.

How many more times are we going to have to sit through that feeble gag about the latex glove and the body cavity search?

The story of a schmo who finds love by prostituting himself is actually funnier than it deserves to be, not to mention rather sweet in a sophomoric, manwhore - with - a - heart - of - gold kind of way.

A couple of these situations are funny, a few are real clunkers, and it all fades away like a slightly bad odor.

The kind of picture those View n' Brew theaters were made for, as long as you don't View.

The problem with Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo is the low level of its low humor.

The teenage boys say 'ewww' and the teenage girls say 'awww,' and you've recouped your $8 million in no time.

Utterly disposable.
