There is something to be said for the uncompromising idiocy of the film, but that something is unprintable.

[A] crass, gross, and woefully unfunny sequel.

A happily idiotic sequel.

This bare-bones plot is merely an excuse to string together a series of gross-out jokes involving bodily fluids, private parts, food and genetic deformities.

In his 1999 debut, Deuce Bigalow emerged as a shameless beach bum, driving a clunker in a land of Porsche Cayennes, cleaning the scum from the fish tanks of the rich and famous.

Jokes that were barely funny the first time around -- like Griffin's endlessly resourceful terminology for male prostitutes and their anatomy -- now feel as tired as Deuce after a heavily booked weekend.

What is most annoying is the sequel's capability of inducing laughter even as one hates oneself for so easily succumbing to the total silliness of it all.

Schneider has little to offer as a leading man besides a goofy grin and a willingness to be sprayed with bodily fluids.

It's good to know someone can still make a good stupid movie, a movie that knows how to laugh at itself instead of merely catering to mankind's lowest instincts.

Either you're down with Deuce Bigalow or you're not. It's as easy as that. (We chose to go lowbrow on this one.)

Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo gets less funny as it goes along. Considering that this alleged comedy wasn't funny to begin with, that's actually quite an accomplishment.

Schneider, who co-wrote the script, has succeeded in making a film that's nearly review-proof: Most of the dialogue -- packed with names for fictitious sex acts and the gigolos who perfect them -- is unrepeatable in a newspaper.

The title contains two words most of its potential audience won't be able to spell.

There is absolutely no reason on God's green earth a second Deuce should ever exist.

Sorry, Deuce fans, but Schneider's faux-sexy alter ego is back with a thud, not a bang.

How many other movies can have Big Ear Girl called up in the closing credits?

Plays like a second-rate Mad Magazine racing through a version of The Aristocrats as if its crap punchline was actually the prize.
