Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo

Deuce_bigalow1_1

Pungent warmed-over jokes about "manginas" and "prostidudes" from the first "Deuce Bigalow" (1999) die a dog's death in this superfluous sequel set in Amsterdam. Deuce (Rob Schneider) hustles his way through a litany of wacky women to exonerate his best friend (Eddie Griffin) of murder. Raunchy jibes and goofy sight gags don't add up to laughs, although there is an endearing quality to the film's non-politically correct sense of humor even if it never blossoms into anything remotely humorous. Strictly the domain of teenage boys, "Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo" scrapes the bottom of the barrel and licks all around the sides. Diapers, public urination, and an inexplicable loyalty to a prosthetic leg make "Deuce Bigalow" a franchise destined to be abandoned.

Rated R. 83 mins.  (D+) (One Star)
