Least imaginative of all -- the TV-commercial director they hired to film it. Yeah, his name is Bigelow, Mike Bigelow. That must have been a real knee-slapper of a meeting.

Aggressively bad, as if it wants to cause suffering to the audience.

Bodily fluids seize enough screentime to earn a supporting-actor credit.

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

Movies this bad should never be made -- and if they are, they should never be released. Except perhaps as some sort of Clockwork Orange-style prison experiment.

Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo is the cinematic equivalent of a bunch of 13-year-old boys in a locker room, repeating dirty phrases they've just learned.

I'm no fan of Schneider, but, like scrapple or the toilet paper at cheap hotels, Schneider fans know what they're getting.

It is the first work by a director named Mike Bigelow. I assume he got the job because of his name. One day he'll look back on this and weep bitter, salty tears.

Schneider has proven repeatedly that nothing is going to kill his career, but if the case ever goes to trial, European Gigolo should put him away for life.

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

"Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo" scrapes the bottom of the barrel and licks all around the sides.

You'll live a happier, fuller life without watching a cancer patient shoot wine through the hole in her neck.

All he has left of her is a prosthetic leg, which he totes around devotedly. Yes, that's the kind of inane humor we're dealing with. But, amazingly, amidst the smutty silliness, there are some laughs.

...mean-spirited and sophomoric sexual slapstick with all the trivial charm of a sloppy hickey on the neck...an extended dirty joke looking for perverse praise and attention

It's 82 minutes of rampant misogyny and homophobia, peppered with occasional fits of toilet humor even the most obnoxious ten-year-old would find unfunny.

This is gross-out without the gags (other than the stomach-churning variety)

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

[Producer] Adam Sandler is a generous friend to Rob Schneider but a sadist to the rest of us.

Schneider, one of the luckier of all Saturday Night Live alums who now make millions in the movies, may well be a fine fellow and excellent company on the set, but on screen he's blank affability incarnate.
