Rob Schneider reprises his role as an unlikely gigolo: Unable to get over the death of his wife (she was eaten by sharks on their honeymoon) he is convinced by a friend to go to Amsterdam, rejoin the ranks of gigolos, and track down a killer who is stalking the male prostitutes. Also with Eddie Griffin, Edwin Alofs, Til Schweiger and Jean Reno. Directed by Mike Bigelow. [1:23]

SEX/NUDITY 7 - It is implied that a pornographic movie is being filmed in a nearby building: we hear a woman moaning and we see a long line of men in bathrobes waiting to get in, and a man breaks through the line, goes inside and finds a man lying on top of a woman thrusting (please see the Violence/Gore category for more details).
 A TV weather person takes off her clothing and we see her bare breasts as she is reporting the latest weather in a few scenes; another TV weather person removes his clothes and we see him bare-chested and in his boxer shorts while reporting the weather. While a man watches a woman wearing a white T-shirt wash a window, her chest rubs against the wet glass and reveals her nipples through the T-shirt. Scantily clad women (bare buttocks and cleavage are revealed) dance behind windows while a man looks on (they are advertising their sexual services). A man on a stage pulls off his jacket and pants and he dances in tiny jockey shorts, and a man wears a tiny thong, wiggles his hips and thrusts. A woman wears a low-cut top that reveals cleavage.
 A woman takes off her robe and wears a bra and panties that reveal cleavage and bare buttocks and she walks to the bedroom waiting for a man to join her. A woman forces a man to dress like a baby in a diaper; she opens her dress and asks if he wants to eat from her breasts (she's wearing a bra).
 A woman talks about having been affected by radiation poisoning and that she was born with a male sex organ for a nose because of it (she wears a veil over her face); when she becomes aroused she gets an erection (we see the veil lift). We read that a woman with a male sex organ for a nose married a man with a female sex organ on his face. A woman with a male sex organ for a nose trips and falls onto a woman with a laryngectomy (presumably penetrating the surgical opening). When a woman with a male sex organ for a nose sneezes she blows semen across a room (two men are hit in the face, a glob lands in a man's soup and he eats it not knowing what has happened).
 A man in a drug induced haze imagines a woman in a painting inviting him to join her and asking him to kiss her chest and bite her; when he snaps out of it he is biting the nipple of a man who yells and pushes him off.
 A man holds what looks like it could be a charred penis in his hand, and a man is found at crime scenes with his hand in the pants of the dead men. A man has a very large bulge in his pants at his crotch and it is repeatedly implied that he is very well endowed.
 A man tries to seduce a woman by complimenting her physique and describing his own endowment and how he would like them to have sex with her. A woman puts her foot in a man's lap and tries to seduce him. A man thinks a choking man is giving him lessons about how to satisfy a woman and he makes suggestive gestures with his tongue and moaning noises. A man talks about having sex with "underage girls." A man introduces men and lists their sexual specialties in graphic detail.
 A man in a jail cell with other men talks about having eaten so much glass in his life that it is now all collected in the lining of his anus -- he's hoping that this information will keep them from forcing him to have sex with them. A man asks several other men if any of them would like him to perform oral sex on the others (one answers yes).
 A man gets out of bed nude and we see his bare buttocks and back, and a woman gets out of bed wearing a low-cut nightgown (revealing cleavage), kisses him, thanks him for the previous evening and pays him. A man, while trying to leave a house undiscovered, runs into a woman and another man, and both thank him for the previous night and pay him. A woman talks about having worked as a phone sex operator.
 There are many euphemisms for sex and sexual prowess ("the man with the most below," the name of the male prostitutes' union is "Semper Erectus," people refer to a man's sex organ as a "mangina," an award ceremony is called the "Golden Boner," etc.).
 A man and a woman kiss in a few scenes, and a woman kisses a man on the cheeks 9 times.
 Several men pull things out of their pants (a cucumber, sock, etc.). An ongoing storyline makes repeated references to a man being gay.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - We see the charred remains of a man who was burned in a tanning bed.
 A man drops a TV remote on a man's head, another man drops a cuckoo clock on his head, and the first man drops a bowling ball on his head (all to see if he is really dead -- he's dead). A man is shoved against a wall and we see him slumped over on the ground later (he is dead).
 A woman swims in the ocean with a man, she holds a piece of lettuce with meat on it, and as the camera pulls away we see the woman being jerked under water (it is implied that a shark has eaten her). We hear that a man's wife was eaten by a shark and he carries her prosthetic leg with him wherever he goes.
 It is implied that a pornographic movie is being filmed in a nearby building: a man goes inside and finds a man lying on top of a woman thrusting, he grabs the man, and throws him out of a window (he lands in water below); the now wet man comes back and punches the first man in the crotch.
 A man is bound and gagged, a poster is placed on his chest saying that he loves President George W. Bush and people pelt him with stones. A woman waves an American flag and someone throws a large stone that pushes her off a bridge into water below.
 A car with a man inside is pushed onto train tracks as a train speeds toward it; we hear the driver scream and we are told that he was killed.
 A man holds a gun on another man and two men fight with swords (that they pull from the crotches of large male statues).
 People swimming with dolphins are bitten by them, pulled through the water and crash into a buoy when a loud noise under water frightens them.
 A man is hit on the head with a statue. A man is thrown out a window and crashes onto a pile of garbage bags on the ground below. A woman crashes her moped on a street, and a man crashes his car. A woman hits herself in the head in several scenes, and a woman bites a man on the arm. A woman slaps a man in the face. Several people are kicked in the face by a prosthetic leg that a man carries onto an airplane. A man is thrown into a dumpster by a bouncer.
 A man thinks a woman is trying to kill him, he grabs a hot poker that she holds in her hand (we hear his hand sizzle), and she raises an ax over her head and brings it down near him (on a piece of wood).
 Two men fall from a ceiling and crash into a glass display case, they get up and run, and they are chased by other men. A man is grabbed by police officers and taken to the police station where he is interrogated.
 A woman has an open laryngectomy and speaks with a microphone pressed to her neck (when she smokes the smoke blows through the opening, and when she drinks the liquid shoots through the opening).
 When a woman with a male sex organ for a nose sneezes she blows semen across a room (two men are hit in the face, a glob lands in a man's soup and he eats it not knowing what has happened). A man urinates in a toilet (we see trickle) and a cat jumps and attaches itself to the man's crotch; the man screams and hits the cat with objects (a mirror and a door) to make it let go. A man chokes on a piece of food, he gags and gasps, a man jumps on his stomach and the man spits out the piece of food that then flies into a woman's mouth causing her to gag and choke. A man drops french fries into a toilet, and then picks them out of the water and eats them. A man defecates on a sidewalk, and 2 men urinate on a car and on a sidewalk. A man flatulates loudly.
 A man uses a "penis enlarger" and inadvertently pumps too much causing his penis to explode (we hear the explosion). A building explodes.
 We see several women with physical anomalies (one has a hump on her back, one has a laryngectomy, and one is covered with dirt and waste).

Become a Member

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
