Description: Small, wimpy Marvin (Rob Schneider), 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 (Colleen Haskell of TV's original "Survivor") in a series of hilarious situations that would drive any animal crazy.
