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

When Sergeant Sisk, played by John C McGinley, enters the Mayor's party in full dress uniform, he is wearing police ribbons & awards of the Los Angeles City Police Department along with US Military ribbons and awards. The first ribbon below his name tag and to the left is the Police Meritorious Service Medal, the second medal is the Police Star, the first green, yellow and red ribbon in the second row is the Police Distinguished Service Medal followed by an unknown ribbon and another unknown ribbon. The third row left is the US Marine Corps Pack Leader ribbon, the middle one is unidentifiable, with the third one being the the US Army Service ribbon. The police medals should be in this order: the Police Distinguished Service Medal, the Police Meritorious Service Medal followed by the Police Meritorious Unit Citation followed by the Police Star. The order presented in error is: two, four, one, three. See more »

Scenes which were deleted include:
The doctor explaining the differant animal parts he put in Marvin. After mentioning the lion with the attention deficit disorder, we see it fall out of the tree in the background.
Marvin wakes up in Dimples doghouse and walks out naked holding the water bowl over his front. He then runs off to his house, again exposing his hair covered behind to the shocked neighbor. (The trailer shows this scene with him wearing underwear.)
Marvin returns to work where he can overhear everyone's conversations, then smells/hears a coworker fart and hastles him for it.
The doctor talks to Marvin more about the animal traits, feeds him a fish, and makes him jump through a firey hoop.

Not bad. actually funny
I liked this movie, even though I feel the trailer made it seem more funny than it actually is. Still, its enjoyable, and has the type of unbelievable humor that I like, that goofy off-the-wall ingredient that really good comedies have. Worth a watch or two.
