If "The Dukes of Hazzard" was the first, then "Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo" is the second comedy in a week that promotes the leisure drug culture. This Rob Schneider sequel produced by Adam Sandler is filmed in the Holy Mecca of the drug culture, Amsterdam. It is sad that the last home of Anne Frank is now known as the pothead capital of the world.
The plot features a serial killer of men whores. The detective, (Jeroen Krabbe') suspects the Pimp of the Seas (Eddie Griffin), a close friend of Duece (Schneider). The detective, has high moral values and a grudge against gigolos. Deuce does his best to unravel the mystery.
There are some gags that work and some do not. Milking humor from the handicapped is distasteful and involves deformities with misplaced genders. The best thing about "Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo" is Eddie Griffin and a running gag that he is gay.
Jim Carrey was wise enough to retire Ace Ventura after the second movie. Hopefully Rob Schneider will do the same with his Deuce Bigalow Gigolo character. Providing that Schneider did not eat too much space cake in Amseterdam.
