Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo

Rated 2.0

This sequel is much better than its predecessor, but that doesn’t make it a good movie. Rob Schneider returns to man-whoring after his pimp friend T.J. (Eddie Griffin) becomes a suspect in the murder of gigolos in Amsterdam. There are plenty of jokes, with one working for every two that miss. The gross-out factor is turned up to level 10. Bodily fluids fly, and there are plenty of sex jokes in the air. (Those who know what a Dirty Sanchez is will probably find themselves laughing harder than others.) Schneider is amusing from time to time but lacks the consistency required to carry his own picture. He’s best taken in small doses, like as the “You can do it!” guy in the Adam Sandler movies. Eddie Griffin and the other man-whores are responsible for most of the big laughs in this one. In fact, this movie would’ve been better if it was called T.J. the Pimp, with Schneider popping in every once in a while with a new catch phrase.
