Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo
from Film Forum, 08/18/05

You could go see Rob Schneider's new comedy Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo. Or you could just read the jokes on the walls of public restrooms. According to critics, the two experiences are quite similar.

David DiCerto (Catholic News Service) calls it a "brainless and disastrously distasteful sequel. … The much raunchier follow-up wallows in juvenile sexual and scatological sight gags that succeed in lowering the already gutter-level bar set by the original. It seems that even rock bottom sometimes has a trap door."

Adam R. Holz (Plugged In) describes his painful experience. "As the film started, I braced myself for a barrage of offensive material—and it rained down just as I expected. But after about the fifth genital-related joke, it ceased to be offensive as much as it was just mind-numbing. Is that all you've got? I wondered. For me, the overall effect of so much sexualized humor was not outrage (though that would be warranted) as much as sheer boredom. When every line of dialogue is working so hard to shock you, it has exactly the opposite effect."

Mainstream critics return from seeing this unwanted sequel with excruciating stories of how they survived the experience.
