The Animal

Crude and sexual humor
Directed by: Luke Greenfield
Written By: Tom Brady & Rob Schneider
Starring: Rob Schneider, Colleen Haskell, John C. McGinley

Ever since I was a kid, I was taught that "A" was for Animal. Now, after viewing this movie, I now know that "F" is for Animal. This movie has about as much amusement as watching a dog chase its' tail for an hour and a half.

Rob Schneider is Martin Mage, a loser wanna be cop, who gets in a freak accident. Martin then has to have an organ transplant of different animals. Martin soon falls in love with an animal loving girl, Rianna (Survivors Colleen Haskell)

I really didn't find anything funny about this movie. I thought it was a comedy without the comedy. I am glad however that Schneider didn't gross us out or pull or rub on an animals private parts, like we saw Tom Green do recently.

I also think that Schneider shouldn't have a love scene. It may be OK in his normal private life, but not on film where everybody can see him.

Schneider fans may like this film, and SNL fans may like the surprise near the end, but I really can't suggest this film for the average person.
