Robert Michael “Rob” Schneider (born October 31, 1963) is an American actor, comedian, screenwriter, and director. A stand-up comic and veteran of the NBC sketch-comedy series Saturday Night Live, Schneider has gone on to a career in feature films, including starring roles in the comedy films Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, The Hot Chick, and Grown Ups. —wikipedia
He tries drama as co-writer/partial director and lead in _Chosen One_, and I suspect sincerely, but it feels as though he is ticking off boxes of what should be included in a dramatic feature without understanding why they should (or should not) be included. There was real potential there, and Schneider, if nothing else, shows that he could be an asset to a good movie if he were able to recognize it, or were lucky enough to be cast by someone who did. _Chose One_ also looks cheap, which doesn't help.
