Today we begin with one my favorite comedies. 1999s Duece Bigalow Male Gilgolo is the sophomoric type of comedy we just don't see anymore. Describing the plot is outlandish in its own right. Rob Schneider is basically Ace Ventura but exclusively with fish. He is unintentionally lured into the world of male prostitution while housesitting for professional gigolo named Antione . Oded Fehr gives a hilarious performance as Antoine. He plays the part perfectly with action hero intensity that perfectly complements Rob Schneiders goofy demeanor. Equally hilarious is Eddie Griffin as Deuces new pimp T.J Hicks. Griffin is able to deliver a wide ranging lexicon of male prostitution related terms or in T.js words "man whoring". Some other noteworthy characters in the film include Detective Charles Fowler who is continually fixated with the girth of his genitalia. My favorite performance in the film is Andrew Shaifer as Neil the not so Subtle in his gayness fish tank repair guy. This movie is not without its flaws. Some of the jokes are cheesy and outdated but what comedy isn't after nearly 20 years. I give it 4 outta 5 cameras 🎥 🎥 🎥 🎥 check back in tomorrow to see whats next on our list.
