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

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 »

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 »
After a flood of really gross gross-out comedies, it's refreshing to see a comedy that's not gross at all, and actually genuinely FUNNY. Just like Deuce Bigalow before it, The Animal is a well-made, well-acted, and very funny film. Best part is it doesn't feel like someone took the teeth out of it just to make it a PG-13, unlike two other movies recently released by two of Schneider's former SNL castmates.
