I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry - Will You Take This Man?

Chuck (Adam Sandler) and Larry (Kevin James) are two straight firefighters[/KWLINK] who pretend to be gay to capitalize on New York's progressive domestic partner benefits. You see, Larry - a widower - wants to make sure his kids will get money from his life insurance if he dies on the job. In this magical movie world, apparently, single men can't be insured. This is just one of the many moments of real-life logic the filmmakers want you to overlook.

I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry - Faux-mophobia

Chuck and Larry quickly learn that homophobia is real - and it's ugly. After their marriage, coworkers begin to shun them, old friends won't play basketball with them, and everyone is on edge. A suspicious fraud inspector gets the feeling that something isn't right in this relationship, and begins to poke around to see if Chuck and Larry are a legitimate couple.

I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry - Tell it to the Judge

Chuck and Larry are forced to hire a lawyer (Jessica Biel) to help them plead their case. Chuck - who we're supposed to believe was previously quite the ladies' man - finds himself instantly attracted to her, but has to keep his hands to himself so that she continues to believe he's gay. But will their act hold up in court? And how will he ever get the girl when Chuck's already got a guy?

I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry - Bottom Line

I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry has the potential to be a pretty offensive movie, but it's far too lame to offend anyone. It works hard to bring home the message of acceptance and equality for all, but sure doesn't mind dragging out one ridiculous stereotype after another for a cheap laugh. Most importantly, it struggles to be even remotely funny or really make us care about any of the characters. Only the biggest Adam Sandler fan - all four of you - will want to check this flick out.
