Review by Milan Milojevic (posted on 15-Feb-2005)

This movie is X-rated due to explicit sexual content, language and crude, albeit effective humor.

"He's not very good-looking, but when the lights are turned off... he's still not very good-looking!" -- is a short comment for Rob Schneider who plays title character of the movie, a miserable fish-tank cleaner who stumbles onto a new and different lifestyle when he gets to look after a high-priced fish for a high-priced male prostitute. After teaming up with the latter's "man-pimp" (played by Eddie Griffin), he gets harassed by a crazy cop (played by William Forsythe) and, of course, falls in love with a gorgeous client, who would be absolutely perfect except for one "minor" draw-back --- she has a prosthetic leg, which Deuce, however, sees as no obstacle. This peculiar relationship (him being a gigolo and her having one leg!) does not stand out in any way, bearing in mind that this film is overbrimming with gags having similar, "odd" overtones, examples of which can be found in the following characters: the girl with Tourrete's syndrome, the obese, flatulent transvestite, Deuce's dad being a hotel toilet cleaner, the above mentioned cop suspecting his wife of being one of Deuce's clients, an obnoxiously tall woman-client etc. The plot of this movie is by no means an Oscar winning one, nevertheless, the humor underlying the dialogues and situations fulfils itís sole purpose, of making the audience burst in laughter, thus making this movie well worth seeing!
