Comedy. Deuce Bigalow is a socially challenged fish tank cleaner whose main passion in life is tropical fish. When Antoine, a gigolo, asks Deuce to help look after some fish at his Malibu apartment while he is away, unfortunate circumstances leave Deuce no option but to take on a new temporary career as a gigolo himself. Deuce proves a most unconventional gigolo, generally finding each client an activity other than sex that actually makes them happier than they were. But one day he falls in love with a girl who believes they are just on a blind date, and matters are not helped by the constant attention Deuce draws from LA police detective Fowler.
