Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo is a stupid and pointless comedic film. Deuce Bigalow (Schneider) is an aquarium cleaner with no personal life. He is always a strikeout with women; however, Deuce gets a boast when a male gigolo named Antoine (Fehr) leaves Deuce in charge of his beautiful apartment. After accidentally causes thousands of dollars worth of damage to Antoine's place, Deuce begins getting calls from Antoine's lonely clients. Deuce then hooks up with a "man-whore" pimp named T.J. (Griffin), who talks him into pleasuring women for money. Deuce begins to visit tall, fat, and profane women for his new job. Deuce then falls in love with a recent college graduate, Kate (Bareikis). Deuce suddenly wants out of the whoring business, but he still has to somehow pay for the wreckage to Antoine's place.

Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo is a failed attempt by Rob Schneider to breakthrough as a lead comedic movie star. The film ends up being very stale and dumb.

Schneider and Harris Goldberg wrote Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo. The script does have a few laughs, but overall the script is poorly written for the film's intention. The writers try to hard to blend in a dramatic love relationship into a nutty comedy.

In my opinion, Rob Schneider is a hilarious talent, it is just that Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo wasn't his film. Schneider developed many funny and unforgettable characters while he was on Saturday Night Live, and I believe that Schneider will not have any trouble bouncing back after this film. The real embarrassment in the movie is William Forsythe. Forsythe plays an obsessed cop who wants Deuce to help him get Antoine arrested. Forsythe is really awful, he just can't do much of anything as of late. He tried earlier this year to do another comedic film, Blue Streak, in which he was also terrible. He has had a couple of good performances in his career, like in Things to do in Denver When You're Dead and The Rock. Maybe Forsythe should try some independent drama.

Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo is one of those absurd and pointless films that will probably make decent money. The reason this film will be a hit is because current moviegoers flock to dumb comedies like this one. I admit that I laughed a few times, but I didn't care for this film at all.
