Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo is a 1999 American comedy film directed by Mike Mitchell and starring Rob Schneider, William Forsythe, and Eddie Griffin. The movie follows the titular character Deuce Bigalow, an unassuming fish tank cleaner who, after a series of unfortunate events, ends up becoming a male prostitute. The film opens with Deuce working in a giant fish tank at an aquarium. He accidentally breaks the tank and causes significant damage, which he cannot afford to pay for. In order to avoid jail time, he is taken in by a friend who is a male prostitute. There, he meets a unique group of male prostitutes who teach him the art of pleasuring women. As Deuce starts to make money and gain confidence, he soon becomes a popular and successful gigolo.
However, as he continues to delve into the world of male prostitution, he begins to develop relationships with his clients and ultimately falls in love with one of them. This leads to a series of complications, including run-ins with a rival gigolo and an unscrupulous police officer investigating the death of one of his clients.
The film's humor is often crude and raunchy, with Schneider's performance as the bumbling Deuce providing much of the film's laughs. However, there are also moments of heart and sincerity, particularly in Deuce's relationship with his love interest, who is portrayed with sensitivity and depth by actress Arija Bareikis.
The movie also features a talented supporting cast, including William Forsythe as a menacing pimp, Eddie Griffin as Deuce's mentor and fellow gigolo, and Amy Poehler in a small but memorable role as a client with unusual desires.
Throughout the film, Deuce learns valuable lessons about love, friendship, and the importance of being true to oneself. While the subject matter may not be for everyone, Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo is an enjoyable and entertaining comedy with a heartwarming message at its center.
