Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo Reviews

August 16, 2005
It's an unimaginative, mean-spirited gross-out that forgot to bring the funny.
August 15, 2005
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.
August 12, 2005
At times, European Gigolo feels more like an international incident than a movie.

Along the way, you pray we've finally reached the nadir of gross-out movies; that it's all uphill from here.

Rob Schneider's shtick still amounts to little more than shameless self-deprecation. It's as though he'll do anything for a laugh -- except elevate the humor itself.

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.

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

A happily idiotic sequel.

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.

Vile and laughless.

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.
August 12, 2005
Schneider has little to offer as a leading man besides a goofy grin and a willingness to be sprayed with bodily fluids.

Just call it Hustle and Low.

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.

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.

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

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.

Director Mike Bigelow maintains a mercifully swift pace, and while the film's humor is deliberately as crass as humanly possible, it is not truly mean-spirited, even though Amsterdam is depicted as a modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah.

With this latest exercise in cynicism, however, it's not Deuce's satisfied clientele, but the audience, that gets the shaft.
August 11, 2005
There's nothing wrong with stupid, gross-out humor if it's funny. But if it's not funny, all you're left with is stupid and gross.

Lest someone cry 'pompous puritan,' let's quickly state that irreverence is often at the heart of inspired comedy. But this flick's flamboyant political incorrectness is more malicious than mischievous.

It would be best appreciated by (a) children of blind, castrated, hearing-impaired Hollywood executives suffering from Tourette's syndrome and arrested development, (b) comic actor-writers who look like Richard Simmons.

Rude, crude and, uh, cosmopolitan, Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo waves the flag for R-rated politically incorrect studio comedy but doesn't top the laugh ratio of the first Deuce misadventure.
August 11, 2005
One of those sequels that seem to have been made less out of inspiration than because the right co-production deal came along.
August 11, 2005
Aggressively bad, as if it wants to cause suffering to the audience.

The world thanks you, Rob Schneider.
