What to know

critics consensus

While less offensive and more charming than recent gross-humored comedies, The Animal is still rather mediocre. Read critic reviews

    Occasionally funny, made no sense what-so-ever. The only thing worth watching was the acting of Schneider.

    The Animal is yet another pointless Rob Schneider comedy that has maybe three actually funny scenes in the entire film. Unfortunately for Schneider, he's a terrible comedian. This film is awful and it's beyond me why this crap got made in the first place. I though that this film was awful, and is one of those comedies that really doesn't stand the test of time. This is the type of comedy film that has poorly constructed jokes and that it really doesn't do anything memorable. The film is just an excuse for Rob Schneider to have a "career" in films. This is so poorly constructed, poorly plotted, yet the idea was pretty interesting. If the script would have been reworked and the jokes better though out, and with a different lead, this might have been a good film. But this film ends up being a big waste of time, and get tiresome after a while. The film rides on one joke practically for the entire length of the film, and it just doesn't cut it. I think that this film should never have been made, and looking back ten years since this crap was made, there have been far better comedies than this. The Animal is one of those comedies that are meant for people who don't want intellectuality to their comedy, it's a mindless one joke film that is so bad, and it can easily be regarded as one of the worst comedies ever made. Even the first two Pauly Shore outings (Encino Man, and Son in Law) brought more laughter than this, and that says something about this train wreck of a film.

    I laughed a lot, and that's the best I can say about this. It's sporadically entertaining, but still lacks what most Happy Madison films do; a decent script.

    This movie is about a guy who gets his organs replaced with animal organs, and thus begins to act like an animal. Is that comedy or just stupidity? Well Rob Schnieder is in it. I think Adam Sandler was involved in the production. I guess that answers my own question.
