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.
The Animal is a 2001 comedy film, starring Rob Schneider, Colleen Haskell, Michael Caton, and John C. McGinley. Schneider plays Marvin Mange, a man who is critically injured but unknown to him he is put back together by a mad scientist who transplants animal parts, resulting in strange permanent changes to his behavior.
