Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo [DVD] [2000] <b>DVD</b> ~ Rob Schneider
2 of 6 people found the following review helpful
This is possibly the worst film I have ever seen. Rob Schneider is awful, the plot is bad, the 'comedy' comes from the fact that blind people might smash things, people with tourettes syndrome might shout rude things and people making fart noises are hilarious. Aimed squarely at 12 year old boys. If you are not one then do not watch it. I'm serious - don't even watch it when it's on Sky Movies (there's 80 minutes I'll never get back). If you are looking for moronic comedy that's actually funny try Ace Ventura or There's Something about mary instead. PLEASE DON'T WATCH THIS - I DID SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO!

Anyway apparently 'one for the lads' but will be enjoyed by anyone who likes reading about ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. My few minor quibbles are that after a while the endless scores and neverending… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars An opinion is not fact, 15 Aug 2005
I am moved to write this review only because of the narrow minded and pretentious views of one or two of the other reviewers. First of all, my review. This album is not great and will not last as an all time classic. However it does have a few genuinely beautiful songs on it with some heartfelt lyrics. Anyone who appreciates good lyrics and nice guitar riffs will like it. Anyone who doesn't like this kind of thing - won't.
Now to my real issue. If you don't like something it is unspeakably arrogant to assume that your opinion is fact and especially to imply that other people are stupid for liking it. I hate people who write reviews from some intellectual high point pointing out that… Read more
