      Critics Consensus

      While less offensive and more charming than recent gross-humored comedies, The Animal is still rather mediocre.

      Empire Magazine Rated: 2/5 Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Steven D. Greydanus Decent Films There was one thing about The Animal that did surprise me: the extent to which it systematically rips off Wolf. Rated: D- May 9, 2002 Full Review Susan Stark Detroit News Rated: 2/4 Oct 30, 2001 Full Review Tom Cassidy Common Sense Media Puerile humor has a place in cinema. But the lazy, mean-spirited jokes that make up The Animal don't prove it.

      stephen b It really wasn't near as bad as I would have thought, mostly due to Norm MacDonald. But yeah.....it's one to skip. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/24 Full Review Randall p comedy yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/26/23 Full Review Darryl H Two half-hearted chuckles through this entire train wreck. I don't know why I kept watching. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 08/27/23 Full Review Georgan G This goofy comedy has such a silly premise that I can't give it 3 stars. However, I enjoy such movies when they are full of comedians I get a laugh from. This one did, lots of old players from SNL. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Zach L One of the dumbest movies I ve seen . Row with utmost neurosis playing the semi animal person ... Rated 1 out of 5 stars 11/06/22 Full Review Obiwan K A funny flick from the early 2000s era of Happy Madison films. While not being on the same level of "The Hot Chick" this movie will keep you entertained. Typical immature slapstick humor and sexual innuendo and being a product of its time. However it knows were to stop and draw the line. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/19/22 Full Review Read all reviews
