Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo



Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

MPAA Rating: R

Former Saturday Night Live cast member Rob Schneider plays a fish tank cleaner who inadvertently turns to male prostitution to earn a few thousand dollars to pay for a broken fish tank. With Arija Bareikis, Allen Covert, Oded Fehr, Eddie Griffin, Norm Macdonald and Amy Poehler. [1:28]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - Sexual innuendo (including references to S&M, homosexuality, multiple-partner sex, fellatio and anal sex) and graphic sexual talk is pervasive. We hear people having sex off-screen (lots of moaning) and see a couple having sex on TV (we hear whipping, yelling and other S&M-type noises). A scantily clad woman moves up and down on a man as they kiss passionately, a woman takes off a man's clothes and it's implied she grabs his penis (we only see his face reacting to this) and a woman throws a man on a bed and rips his clothes off (he's still in his underwear on camera). A man and woman have intercourse but we only see them post-coitus (her head is resting on his bare chest). We see a close-up of a used condom. Some kissing. Several scenes in which a man unzips his pants, pulls out his penis (which we never see) and tells another man to look at it; also, a man grabs another's clothed buttocks. A woman moans in ecstasy while a man rubs her feet. In three scenes we see a naked man's backside; also, we see a man with a towel wrapped around his waist and a few scantily clad women. A few scenes in which we see a woman's nipples through her wet T-shirt after she dips her breasts into a fish tank. A few scenes of men in their underwear; sometimes the men are dancing suggestively while stripping for a woman. A man reaches into his underwear and pulls out dollar bills.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Mostly played for laughs. A scene in which it's implied a male and female police officer sodomize a man (it's implied the woman uses a club); we see him walking painfully throughout the rest of the movie. A man shoots a woman in the chest with a crossbow, but her chest is protected and she's not injured. A man is beaten by the police; also, a woman punches a man in the gut and kicks him in the face and groin. A man pulls off a woman's fake leg. Threatening with a crossbow and some verbal threats. A couple scenes with visual "toilet humor," including one in which a man is plunging a toilet and catches a piece of excrement in a fish bowl; also, a bathroom scene in which we hear flatulence.

PROFANITY 5 - Lots of anatomical references and slang terms, scatological references, mild obscenities and insults. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Pimping, male and female prostitution, sex, love.

MESSAGE - Even losers can find love if they will themselves to it.

Special Keywords: S6 - V4 - P5 - MPAAR

Our Ratings Explained

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.
