OUR WORD TO PARENTS:
The following is a brief summary of the content found in this R-rated comedy. The film is filled with all sorts of scatological (body-based) humor, and makes fun of and generates laughs at the expense of those it deems "different" (people who are missing limbs or are obese, blind, etc...).A great deal of sexually related material is also present, including the basic notion of gigolos as well as the sounds of people having sex, other implied sex, a partially seen but not heard porno tape, related dialogue and partially unclothed or occasionally nude people.Profanity consists of many uses of the "s" word along with slang terms for genitalia, while other profanities and colorful phrases are also uttered. Some fighting occurs in the (comedic) form of a woman beating up the main character as well as another trying to attack him with medieval weapons.Since kids -- especially teenage males -- may be drawn to this film, you might want to take a closer look at our more detailed content listings should you still be concerned about the picture and its appropriateness for anyone in your home.


QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: After wrecking the house of a dangerous gigolo for whom he's house sitting, a small-time loser must take to servicing women to pay for the repairs.
WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of Schneider, anyone else in the cast or sophomoric comedies, they just might.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
The reason was not available at the time of this review, but we'd guess it was for sexually related material, language and crude humor.
CAST AS ROLE MODELS:
  • ROB SCHNEIDER plays a small-time loser who must take to male prostitution to pay for repairs he accidentally causes to another gigolo's home. Although he visits many women, he only sleeps and subsequently falls for one.
  • ARIJA BAREIKIS plays that woman who's nervous about Deuce learning of her secret (she has a fake leg).
  • WILLIAM FORSYTHE plays a detective who hounds Deuce while trying to bust him and others. While doing so he cusses and has a thing about showing his genitals to Deuce (although more in a demonstration way than in a sexual/homosexual fashion).
  • EDDIE GRIFFIN plays a pimp who takes on Deuce as his latest "man-whore." He also cusses and has a thing about eating food that's fallen into a hot tub.
  • ODED FEHR plays a playboy gigolo who services many women and then threatens to do Deuce bodily harm when he returns from overseas business.

  • SEX/NUDITY: HEAVY
    (Return to Summary Chart)
  • We see Deuce's bare butt as he cleans a city aquarium completely nude. After he's thrown out onto the street, we see him holding clothes that just barely cover his crotch, but nothing else and again see his bare butt that he tries to cover with a net.
  • Deuce has a buxom young woman (who's wearing a tight top) lean over a large aquarium to retrieve items from the bottom of it. He does so to cause her breasts to dip into the water (which we see from inside the aquarium and then when she stands up again giving her the wet T-shirt look). As he leaves, he then accidentally tells her, "Have a good nipple."
  • As Deuce takes a plunger to a toilet in an attempt to retrieve a small pet fish from it, he and we hear sounds of a bed rhythmically thumping along with a woman's moaning next door (the result of Antoine having sex with her). As the pace of those sounds increases, Deuce increases his thrusting of the plunger until the sounds of the next door couple's climaxing corresponds with a burst of water (and the fish) from the toilet Deuce was pumping.
  • Antoine tells Deuce that women find it erotic when one fish eats a smaller one in his aquarium.
  • Once Deuce discovers that Antoine is a professional gigolo, he asks, "You just drive them back here and have sex with them?" Antoine replies only if he they pay him enough, and then states that women pay him to give them pleasure.
  • We see a shapely woman come out of Antoine's bedroom who shows a lot of cleavage.
  • Antoine holds what looks like a dildo, but turns out to be his toothbrush holder.
  • We see Antoine in his boxers.
  • Deuce finds a used condom on Antoine's bed.
  • As Deuce tries to hit on the woman in the pet store, an older woman tells him, "Try to get laid on your own time."
  • Deuce activates Antoine's entertainment center and then sees a porno tape playing on the big screen. As a girl scout then comes to the front door, Deuce finds that he can't shut off the tape (that includes a closeup shot of a man having sex on top of a woman -- we see movement, but only from their heads), as well as a pleasured expression on the woman's face, a partial glimpse of a bare butt, and whipping/spanking sounds.
  • We see Deuce in his briefs.
  • An aquarium salesman drops all sorts of innuendo at Deuce while talking about business such as "You might not want to blow your whole wad," "I'm not trying to flip you over and do you dry," "a big stiffy," a "custom hand job," and "I came all over the place."
  • Deuce answers one of Antoine's gigolo-related calls and reluctantly shows up (after the client convinces him by stating that she's naked) at a middle-aged woman's home. She's wearing a revealing teddy and garters, while he shows up dressed like a Swiss tourist wearing a hat, camera, suspenders and tight briefs (that show a bulge). She gets excited by this fantasy and he whips out a roll of condoms. She then pulls him down on top of her on the bed and wraps her legs around his back, but nothing else happens as her dog starts to tear through the bedroom door and he runs out.
  • Deuce picks up a woman in a bar (who shows cleavage) and they go back to Antoine's place where each learns that the other is a prostitute/gigolo.
  • T.J. likens Deuce to a fish at the bottom of an aquarium that's trying "to get busy" with a toy scuba diver.
  • We see Deuce's bare butt as it's waxed free of hair during a makeover. T.J. then indicates for the woman to wax Deuce's scrotum and/or genitals (by making a swinging genital gesture with his finger) and she does so (but we only see Deuce's shocked reaction to the hair being pulled off).
  • When Deuce meets the large and rather manly "Jabba Lady," the "woman" says, "I know what you're thinking -- those are the biggest boobies you've ever seen" and "I like sex. I'm not afraid to admit it."
  • Deuce's father states that he met Deuce's mother at a strip club and comments about her picking up dollar bills off the stage. Later, he states that his wife had "an amazing mouth" and that it paid for their honeymoon (suggesting what she did with it to make money).
  • A very tall woman carries Deuce to her bed and rips off his clothes down to his boxers. We then hear sexual sounds and see the woman scrunching up the sheets with her hand, but then see that he's only rubbing oil on her large feet that has her in ecstasy.
  • While questioning Deuce about his activities, Det. Fowler unzips his fly and apparently pulls out his genitals (we don't see it, but Deuce does) and asks "What do think about this?" and "Do you think I could get paid for this?"
  • We drop in on the middle of a conversation between Kate and Deuce about being an astronaut (but we don't know that). She makes comments (that initially sound sexual) about it not being pleasurable for women and how she doesn't know how men "go up there."
  • Confronting Deuce again, Fowler once more apparently pulls out his genitals to show Deuce (we don't see anything) and they talk about there possibly being a rash down there.
  • A woman passes by wearing a skimpy bikini.
  • Kate and Deuce start to undress each other and we see her in her bra (with cleavage). He's then on top of her on a bed and kisses down her chest and then kisses her leg (right before it comes off -- it's a prosthesis). Later, we see the two of them in bed (but without activity or nudity).
  • Deuce goes to his next job and the woman there shows cleavage and takes off most of his clothes. He then comments "You don't want to have sex," to which she replies, "Yes I do. I think we both do" as she looks down and sees clothing hanging off his erection (we only see the hanging clothes). After Deuce tells her about Kate and this woman gets another look at Deuce's privates, she states, "She's a lucky girl, at least emotionally" (referring to his size).
  • Deuce then does a male exotic dancer routine for this woman in his tightfitting briefs. As such, he swings around a lamp stand, humps a table, and then stands above her face on a couch. She then grabs his underwear and stretches it down before letting it go, causing it to snap him in the groin. Later, we see Deuce and this woman's husband doing a dance for her in their tightfitting briefs.
  • Detective Fowler states that his wife cheats on him because of the size of his "d*ck." Deuce then says that size doesn't matter, but Fowler says that the problem is the thinness of his genitals (and says that he knows that it's width that gives women satisfaction).
  • We see Antoine's bare butt as he's about to be strip searched.
  • The pet store employee has her clothed breasts back down into the aquarium water again.
  • Kate's blind roommate comes out of a closet with T.J. with both of them getting dressed after doing something sexual that miraculously restored her vision. She then comments about him being black, but then says that she already knew that (by the stereotypically large size of his genitals that we don't see).

  • Trying to free himself hanging upside down from some foot straps, Deuce accidentally pulls over Antoine's large and expensive aquarium, sending it crashing and shattering onto the floor. He also accidentally starts a small fire in the toaster then scorches a counter and cabinet.
  • After Deuce refuses to pay for a drink, a bartender threatens him by stating that he'll take a swizzle stick and "shove it up your pee hole."
  • A female hooker punches Deuce in the gut. In turn, he punches her in the butt and she then kicks him in the crotch and knees him in the face. She then kicks him across the room and then repeatedly kicks him in the face before he grabs her bra strap and, stretching it far away from her body, lets it go, smacking her back.
  • Kate accidentally closes a door onto Deuce's head.
  • Kate's blind roommate accidentally breaks the glass front of a cabinet as she puts away dishes.
