just got me over here to man-whore again"
After leaving Man-Whoring behind, Deuce Bigalow (Schneider)
is trying to get over the freak death of his beloved Kate but when his latest
project causes a dolphin riot, Deuce decides to visit his old friend T.J.
(Griffin) in Amsterdam. When he gets there he discovers that a killer is
murdering man-whores during the run up to the Man-Whore of the Year awards
and T.J. is the police's main suspect. It is now up to Deuce to help clear
his friend's name but the only way he can do that is to become a Man-Whore
Rob Schneider returns to his most famous comedic creation
but can Deuce Bigalow's second adventure up the man whoring to a new level?
Rob Schneider has made a career from playing down and out
characters that rise up against their ugliness and live happily ever after
with a beautiful girl who sees past his imperfections. When he created Deuce
Bigalow however he took this to a whole new level by saying that women would
actually pay to be with him. Rob Schneider introduced us to the man-whore
and he had finally created a funny character but the bad news is that he
has completely ruined him in the sequel.
After the success of the first film in 1999 a sequel was inevitable
but with such a long gap between the first and second film you cannot help
but think that he left far too much time between the first and second movies.
Where the first film was fresh and a twist on his usual formula, the second
film is stale, clichéd and just not funny.
The continuation of Deuce's adventures could have offered
more laughs to fans of the original but instead we have endure a far fetched
plot and a complete lack of man whoring. Yes Deuce does have to return to
the strange and bizarre women he had to date in the first film but none
of them have the development that they had before. Now we have a collection
of complete freaks that just take the joke too far.
The performances don't make up for any of these shortcomings
either. Eddie Griffin's T.J. becomes an assortment of clichés and repeated
gags that just becomes annoying as the film progresses. Hanna Verboom is
beautiful but she is only there to look good. Jeroen Krabbé tries his best
with a one-dimensional character but it is Rob Schneider himself who comes
off worst. Deuce just doesn't advance at all as he tries to become even
nicer and even an action hero.
'Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo' is an example of why sequels
should not be made. Even fans of the original will struggle to find any
enjoyment in this. It is time for Rob Schneider to give up his man whoring
Presented in Widescreen 1.85:1 Anamorphic with a Dolby Digital
5.1 soundtrack, the transfer is good.

When the DVD extras are the highlight you know that something
has gone wrong with the film. The making of documentary has more laughs

will be more pleased with the extras than the movie itself.
