Deuce (Rob Schneider) earns a meager living as a professional fish tank cleaner until he’s asked to housesit for a gigolo. Deuce mistakenly answers the gigolo’s business phone and finds himself having sex with a woman he’s never met and getting paid for it (not a bad deal, since women generally avoid Deuce like the Ebola virus). It’s not long before Deuce learns that there’s more to selling your body than one might expect: for example, being re-styled by your pimp or having to explain your new source of income when the owner of the house gets home. Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo was the first feature film produced by Adam Sandler’s production company, Happy Madison; Sandler himself makes a cameo appearance, while Oded Fehr, William Forsythe, Eddie Griffin, and Marlo Thomas highlight the supporting cast.
