Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo

A former gigolo is lured back into the business in order to help solve a mystery surrounding the disappearance of other gigolos. Deuce Bigalow is as low as he can get. His wife was recently eaten by sharks, and he's left in California without a purpose in life. To help ease his pain, his friend TJ, a smooth-talking gigolo, invites him to come to Amsterdam with him, where they can partake of as many legal drugs as they want. They meet Heinz, a fellow gigolo and friend of TJ's, and on their way home that night, they find Heinz seemingly passed out in an alleyway. They take Heinz back to TJ's boathouse, where they realize that Heinz has actually been killed, the most recent in a string of murdered gigolos in Amsterdam. Unfortunately, when TJ i caught dumping Heinz's body into the river, he becomes the prime suspect of the police investigation, led by Inspector Gaspar Voorsboch. Deuce stays mum on TJ's whereabouts, refusing to turn in his friend. With TJ in disguise, they set out to determine the actual killer-- and since Deuce believes he saw a woman with Heinz that night, they determine it must be one of Heinz's clients. Deuce, having dabbled in the gigolo business in the previous film in this duology, returns to the gigolo world, seducing all of Heinz's eccentric former clients, including a hunchback and a woman with male genitalia on her nose. Deuce also begins dating Gaspar's niece, Eva, a sweet woman who suffers from OCD. After another murder and TJ's arrest, Deuce suspects that Eva is the serial killer, and he tells Gaspar his feelings. However, he discovers soon enough that Gaspar is in fact the killer, driven to madness by his past desire to become a gigolo, which led to the loss of his fiancee and the unfortunate loss of his own genitalia. Gaspar has decided to attack the Man Whore Awards, an awards ceremony for male prostitutes, where he can use a bomb and rid the world of all of them once and for all. Yet with the help of Heinz's clients, who love and support Deuce, Gaspar is defeated, and Deuce is given an award at the ceremony-- the "Golden Boner," given for his bravery. TJ is released from jail, with a new desire to become a gay gigolo, and Deuce, Eva, and TJ live happily ever after.

Best part of story, including ending: The first Deuce Bigalow film is a good balance of sweet and gross, but this movie lacks the sweetness of the original. It's just a barrage of mean sex jokes, and it doesn't work.

Best scene in story: As with the first, the highlight is Deuce's romance with a character-- this time with Eva, as Hanna Verboom is good as Eva, and her physical comedy regarding her OCD, especially in her first meeting with Deuce, slapping herself impulsively, is amusing.

Opinion about the main character: Deuce is still a sweet character with a respect for women, but this time around, the movie isn't about his personal growth, so he is given less to do and show.
