Flashback Friday-Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo (1999)

There is nothing wrong with a dumb comedy. Sometimes, we need a movie like that to help us relax after a long day. But, there is a difference between a dumb comedy that makes us laugh and a dumb comedy that is just plain dumb.

Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo premiered in 1999. Rob Schneider plays the title character. Deuce Bigalow is not exactly winning in life. Far from Herculean looks wise and trying to earn his keep by cleaning aquariums, he is not getting very far. When a male gigolo asks Deuce to watch his fish while he is on a business trip, things go wrong.

Deuce figures out that the only way to fix what has been broken is to become a male gigolo himself. It seems like a simple task, but when something seems simple, it usually isn’t.

I’ve only seen a few minutes of this movie, for good reason. It is a dumb movie in the worst way possible. Whatever opportunities it had to be genuinely funny are wasted, as was the time spent watching this film.

Do I recommend it? Absolutely not.
