Deuce Bigalow: European Gigalo



Last night I went to the 10:10 showing of Deuce Bigalow: European Gigalo
at the Mann 6 theater on the Promenade and here's my mini review.

For perspective, I was 17 years old when Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo came out and I remember laughing a lot when I saw it in the theater with my buddy Ray. In the six years since, I've grown up a lot, gone to film school and seen my tastes get what some would describe as "snobbier". Nonetheless, I laughed my ass off last night as well.

Clocking in at around 80 minutes, its barely a movie and if you are looking for anything remotely interesting in your editing, directing or pacing of a movie, then perhaps this isn't the flick for you. Some of the montages are so poorly put together I felt like I was watching a rough cut and the plot unfolds from one obvious set up to the next. But what Deuce Bigalow lacks in cinematic competance, it makes up for in laughs. Not a single clever joke in the whole thing, but some brilliant stupid ones. Eddie Griffin really comes into his own here with his T.J. character. Left as a side note in the first film, he is able to run wild in the sequel while Rob Schneider merely plays the straight man.

One running joke has Griffin constantly referring to Schneider's penis with a different euphamism such as "twatsicle" or "shenis" or "vaguyna". Basically if you don't think that's funny then don't see the movie. But you'll be cheating yourself out of a shameless, laugh-filled 80 minutes my friend.

Chad, I'm sorry I was not in LA any sooner to witness your reactions to this movie first-hand. What I wouldn't give!
