Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Deuce Bigalow is seduced back to his unlikely pleasure-for-pay profession, when his former pimp T.J. Hicks (Eddie Griffin) is implicated in the murders of Europe’s greatest gigolos. Deuce must go back to work in order to clear his good friend’s name. Along the way, he must compete against the powerful European Union of prosti-dudes and court another bevy of abnormal female clients including the beautiful Eva, who suffers from acute obsessive-compulsive disorder.”

Viewer Comments
Negative—…I literally got up and left about 25 minutes into the movie. The entire time I watched the morals kept creeping further and further into verbal pornography so offensive from the “light hearted” goofiness of the original I literally squirmed for relief. Feeling hijacked out of my $7.00 dollars I walked out the back and back into the front paying another $7.00 to sufficiently kill the time I had planned on losing.

I don’t mind “killing time” but offending God by trying to receive my money’s worth was out of the question. Please, Christian’s, don’t see this movie (though somewhat crude—the first installment was palatable, this was like chewing dirt.)
My Ratings: Very Offensive/1½
Gary, age 54
Negative—This movie was a corny rip-off of the original, and far better first Deuce Bigalow movie, I found this movie to be offensive because of how it makes fun of a severe mental illness, OCD-Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, in reality OCD requires lifetime medication (Psychiatric Drugs) and therapy, lives have been totally ruined by OCD, and it causes many sufferers to commit suicide as well as making failed suicide attempts. Many OCD sufferers also suffer from severe secondary Suicidal Depression as secondary to the OCD. Overall, the film was disgusting and crude.
My Ratings: Extremely Offensive/2
Jack Jensen, age 25
Neutral—…this movie was extremely crude, much more than the first, and had a lot of other sexual material in it that the first did not. I would not recommend this movie to anyone under the age of 16 due to the crude/sexual content in this movie.
My Ratings: Offensive/4
Matt Wesly, age 23
Neutral—Not quite as good as the first one. But if you have ever seen the first one, or seen commercials for either one, you can definitely tell there will be crude humor in it. I mean, c’mon, it has the word GIGOLO in the title. But if you’re up for a good laugh, this movie will make you chuckle! The adventure Deuce goes on is quite funny to find out who the killer is. And of course, has a happy ending.

…no redeeming qualities in this grotesque movie…
Henry J. Rogers, Preview Family Movie and TV Review
…about as gross as it gets… constant, overwhelming, disgusting, over-the-top teenage bathroom humor…
Sue Pierman, The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
…A film so not-funny they made it twice…
Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Roger Moore
…Mr. Schneider, your movie sucks…
Chicago Sun-Times, Roger Ebert
…the slapstick is strictly of the skull-banging, ear-splitting variety…
Chicago Tribune, Michael Phillips
…The humor is supposed to be outrageous but instead falls flat… just plain yucky…
