Marvin struggles to remain civilized and be a perfect gentleman with his new love, Rianna in a series of hilarious situations that would drive any animal crazy. Runtime: 84 mins Release Date: 31 May 2001
Unlike some other reviewers here, I'm not really fond of movies like 'The English Patient' nor 'Titanic' or stuff like that.I do like mindless entertainment, and like usual Schneider succeeds 100% in doing that. This is really good stuff if you just want to sit back, relax and laugh alot. Nothing more, nothing less.Rob Schneider is in fact a really cool funny guy, he proved that with Deuce Bigalow, SNL and Men Behaving Badly.Some girls might not like his humor, but that's up to them.If you're cool, you love this movie, just like other Sandler/Schneider stuff.
The best feature length, live action, slapstick, animal based comedy of the year (by frog2077)
I think you have missed the point of 'The Animal' completely. It is truly brilliant.First off there is Schneider himself, with the acrobatic dexterous slapstick genius that is only equalled by Keaton and Chaplin while his characterisation of a failing, loser, police office evidence clerk is the equal to any performance put in by Brando, Olivia, Hopkins or Curry.The production values, while not overly high, portray an attention to detail unrivalled by any feature length, live action, slapstick, animal based comedy that came out that year. Whilst the script is as cutting and <more>
contemporary as anything produced by a Hollywood studio, the directing demonstrates a brilliance that a comedy even of this calibre rarely get the luxury of having.The over loud animal noises, the nob gags, the bum gags, the brilliant juxtaposing of 'funny' animal related physical jokes and human social events that on the face of it a 7 year old could have wrote but in reality could only have been penned by a genius.The plot is brilliant, inspired and in places truly emotional. I don't want to spoil this truly great movie so don't read on if you haven't seen it .Mourning the loss of his father, Marvin has to come to terms with his inability to find a companion and his spiralling out of control lack of self confidence. Ostracised by his work colleagues, ritually abused by his neighbour and her viscous dog and devoid of any and all satisfaction personally and professionally. Its to this backdrop that Marvin suffers a hideous debilitating car accident but is miraculously saved by having his DNA spliced with an unknown amount of domesticated animal DNA and having some body part replacement.The movie covers politically hot topics such as whether using animal DNA in humans is acceptable, the ethics of breeding animals for body parts, the threat of hunting on animal populations and the cost of animal conservation, that cannibalism is acceptable and that bestiality isÂ…OK. This is not to mention the exploration between god, man and animal and the questions regarding animal consciousness.This is apart form the everyday elements of work place rivalry, racism, fat-ism, sexism, gun control, murder, meat eating and monkey jokes.On a personal level, I have watched this movie 1000 times and have yet to not find it funny, I literally end up doubled up in pain, crying.....with laughter its just that good. I challenge anyone to get through this movie and not laugh at one joke, its not possible. Brilliant brilliant brilliant.The bit where the scientist suggest Marvin get rid of his latent aggression fuelled by his sexual urge by sleeping with a chimpanzee in a pink tutu is possibly the funniest thing I have ever seen in my life...my life!! If you don't laugh at this movie your just dead inside.Mr Schneider we salute you another fantastic movie, lets hope he ignores the billions of ignorant critics, the unjust reviews and the failing box office returns and goes on to make the animal 2 and 3. Brilliant!
Lol funny funny movie. It took me a little while to get into it, but it had a solid middle and end. Norm McDonald was wonderful. I recommend it to any adam sandler fans.
that man is (by thisanant)
I am honestly surprised at the low ratings of this movie . it is a hilarious comedy and it really does not deserve such ratings . It is really funny , from the start to finish . the idea is new , the jokes are cool , may be a little on the animal side .

Funny in a stupid way (by gmstewart948)
If you're a fan of stupid/dumb humor, this is a must see!! It will never be mistaken for an Oscar winner or a critical masterpiece but if you want to switch off your brain and have a good hour and a half laugh, this will do it...
I Have To Admit: This Is Pretty Funny (by ccthemovieman-1)
This was just plain funny and very entertaining throughout the goofy 83 minutes. Crude? Yes, at times, but what modern-day comedy isn't lately? The PG-13 rating is a joke. With all the sexual stuff in here, "R" is more appropriate.Some of that sleazy stuff, to be honest, was pretty funny, though and there isn't much profanity. Rob Schneider, as "Marvin," lays his goofy Deuce Bigelow-type character on us, trying to get the pretty girl "Rianna" Colleen Haskell . I really thought this would be a stupid film but Schneider's animal imitations are <more>
hilarious and, overall, this a very fast-moving, silly-but-lots of laughs film.
A delectable tale of man's nature and Badgermilk (by eric-636)
I was kept on the edge of my seat during this Herculean cinematic experience -- the question of one's very identify with one's self is set against a backdrop of hilarity and monkeys in skirts. The question of police brutality in our society is dealt with on a Ciceronian level as older policemen are cast as blood mongrels and middle aged police officers are cast as muscle headed steroid-freaks -- a casting delight surprise from Office Space is in store for educated viewers.A dramatic tale from start to end, even the farm animals are in the winner's circle when the time come to roll <more>
the credits. Happy Madison productions has done it again. Bravo!
Plays better on cable with 4 minutes missing. A funny premise that borders on the obscene, as Rob Schneider's animal instincts take over after a zany mad scientist puts him back together with animal parts and glands after a near-fatal car crash. Originally meant as an Adam Sandler vehicle, Rob does a masterful comical performance in a really silly movie actually funnier than "Ace Ventura Pet Detective". Because of his "special abilities", "The Animal" can smell heroin being smuggled in an airplane passenger's body and saves the mayor's child from <more>
drowning. He is hopelessly harassed by his boss as he tries to survive probation on the police force. Right up there as a farce reminiscent of "The Man with Two Brains". Like "Blazing Saddles" it even has several uncomfortable "black prejudice" comments by the only black man in the film. Look for Ed Asner as an old policeman in a very insignificant role. Collen Haskell is really cute as the love interest who ends up being part "Animal" herself. "We have the same doctor." Rob tries to hump everything in sight, gorges on cattle and wakes up in a butcher shop window, stuffed with salami and ham. It even makes fun of the Frankenstein movie's torch-lit mob scenes. A short funny movie, very well done, but with low-class humor, to be sure. Not for young children, although much more is suggested than actually shown.
