A weak con man panics when he learns he's going to prison for fraud. He hires a mysterious martial arts guru who helps transform him into a martial arts expert who can fight off inmates who want to hurt or love him.
From the producers of the comedy smash Deuce Bigalow comes The Animal, about a small, wimpy Marvin, who doesn't have what it takes to fulfill his lifelong dream to be a cop. But his luck changes when he's critically injured in a car accident and a deranged scientist secretly uses animal organs to rebuild him. Energized by his new parts, Marvin leaves his weakness behind and achieves instant fame as a supercop. Now a hero, life is going great for Marvin until his animal instincts start taking over his body at all the wrong times. 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.Written by

At the end of the credits you can hear "That's a huge bitch", which is the same thing heard when "Deuce Bigalow" (played by Rob Schneider) was with the Six Foot Woman. See more »
Network television versions include additional footage. Among these scenes include Marvin hiding out from the angry mob near the end of the film at the home of an elderly nearsighted woman (played by Cloris Leachman), who thinks Marvin is her pet cat and forces him to eat cat food. See more »
Hilarious, SNL Castmember Makes a Good Movie, First in a While
I will be honest with you, I went to see The Animal for Norm Macdonald. But what I saw was one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. Not only is Colleen Haskell a pretty good actress, but Rob Schneider was even funnier than in Deuce!!! And Did I mention Norm's line "I'm not gonna be in a mob to kill a black dude" Funny!!!
