Marvin (Rob Schneider) does not have the ingredients to be a cop which is his lifelong dream. But his luck soon changes when he is involved in a car crash that leaves his unconscious body mangled beyond belief. He is found by a mad scientist doctor appropriately named Dr. Wilder who uses animal organs to rebuild him. Eight days later, he wakes up with superhuman abilities and can sniff out drugs hidden in body cavities, outrun horses and perform many other amazing animal feats becoming the best cop one could ever be. This movie is filled with the usual slapstick jokes and its silly, but arent comedy movies supposed to be silly after all?
