Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 06/01/2001
"...[A] very funny comedy....Its relative modesty lends Mr. Schneider's deft, ingenious performance an unexpected glow of innocence..."
USA Today - 06/08/2001
"...Schneider, with his cherub curls and scrawny physique, adopts a pussycat persona that engenders goodwill....The resulting physical comedy is bound to trigger your laugh instinct..."
Hollywood Reporter - 05/29/2001
"...A comedy that's got heart....Both sprightly and tailored to [Schneider]..."
Variety - 06/04/2001
"...[An] underlying silly sweetness..."
Los Angeles Times - 06/01/2001
"...Outrageous and imaginative....Schneider is wonderfully expressive..."
Sight and Sound - 12/01/2001
"...A film that gives full scope to Schneider's winning line in broad physical comedy..."

Product Description:

Marvin Mange (Rob Schneider) has only one dream in life: to become a police officer, like his father. Unfortunately, Marvin's natural clumsiness and lack of self-esteem have made him the laughing stock of his police coworkers. All of that changes after a freak car accident, and a mad scientist's intervention. When Marvin regains consciousness, he can run faster, jump higher, and smell things no ordinary human should be able to smell, allowing him to perform as a top-notch cop. But Marvin's rival on the police force (John C. McGinley) is out to get him. What's worse, Marvin soon learns that he cannot handle his animal urges. Colleen Haskell from the television show SURVIVOR makes her film debut, and Schneider delivers a terrific performance in a perfect comic role. THE ANIMAL is a hilarious collection of gags and bizarre sights (including Marvin's amorous encounter with a goat) that add up to make this silly, warmhearted comedy.
