    I laughed, yes, I did, several times during Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo. That's proof, if any is required, that I still possess streaks of immaturity and vulgarity.
  2. 38
    A pathetically dumb attempt to string a bunch of second-rate skits together like a garland of rotten cranberries.
  3. Reviewed by: Mike Mitchell
    The kind of surprising giggles that make you wonder why you're laughing--- that's worth a few bucks.
  4. Only the innate sweetness of both its lead character and its base premise keeps you from wanting to slap Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo upside its mangy, empty head.
  5. 30
    After loosening us up with some irresistible shtick that rigorously fulfills genre expectations, the movie subtly, systematically begins to break down familiar tropes in the depiction of attractiveness, attraction, and heterosexual courtship.
  6. 25
    Custom-designed for 13 year-olds, laden with broad sight gags, gross sound effects and a bowlful of potty jokes.
  7. 25
    He's (Sandler) trying to clone himself by supporting his buddies in making low-budget, high-grossing -- in all senses of the word -- formula films just like his own.
  8. The jokes are unabashedly pitched at 12-year-old boys, with flatulence, masturbation and excretions as the leading themes.
  9. Just when you're sure that Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo can't get any less funny, the movie douses the trailer's best gag, as that prosthetic leg turns out to be attached to Deuce's true love.
  10. 20
    Mitchell's film would be another example of why former SNL cast members should choose their scripts wisely, except that Schneider wrote this one.
  11. Juvenile comedy targets a gallery of imperfect women.
  12. Reviewed by: Robert Koehler
    A sign that the Sandler comedy empire is expanding and reaching new depths of pure gross-out stupidity.
  13. 16
    It's as sullying and disheartening an experience as the movies can offer .
  14. An insufferably insipid comedy with a cruel subtext.
  15. A little Disney Christmas release that comes wrapped in used toilet paper.

    Silly, perhaps, but Rob Schneider is such a likable actor that it really doesn't matter and this is a very funny film. As long as you don't sit there taking it too seriously and laugh along at some pretty out there jokes then you will have a good time, but you will need to 'get' Schneider's comedy in order to enjoy it. It's also a clever concept too I think of an Average Joe taking over the role of a Gigolo and he pulls it off perfectly, so if you're in need of a good chuckle look no further Full Review »

    Deuce Bigalow is a hilarious movie. It might not be the smartest film but it has some of the funniest lines to date. Rob Schneider is great along with all the other characters. Full Review »

    One of the funniest movies I've ever seen, yet it still has heart. Rob sneider is brilliant in this movie. He really made me laugh which is huge cuz a lot of comedies nowadays don't really do it for me. Full Review »
