Editors Note
Note Two comedy dynamos unite in this comedy from director Dennis Dugan (PARENTHOOD, HAPPY GILMORE). Brooklyn firefighters Larry Valentine (Kevin James) and Chuck Levine (Adam Sandler) have watched each other's back since they met in the Academy even though they are different as can be. Playboy Chuck can't get enough of the ladies and they can't get enough of him. Larry, meanwhile, is a widower raising two young children and still grieving the death of his wife. When Larry saves Chuck's life on a call, he comes up with a unique way for his buddy to repay him: having missed the opportunity to name his children beneficiaries, he asks Chuck to act as his domestic partner so that his children will be provided for if tragedy strikes. But these two buddies soon find themselves the subject of an investigation by the city. Enter Alex McDonough (Jessica Biel), their highly attractive attorney who leaves Chuck desperately wishing he wasn't pretending to be gay.^Initially, Chuck and Larry are as guilty of making stereotypical gay jokes as the next average Joe. In fact, pretty much any and every gay joke and stereotype turns up in this film. But their attitudes change when the shoe is on the other foot and they find themselves and their new gay friends the subject of discrimination, mocking and name-calling. Ving Rhames, Steve Buscemi, Richard Chamberlain, and Nicholas Turturro have supporting roles, and musicians Lance Bass and Dave Matthews make brief appearances. SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE alumni also abound: watch for Rachel Dratch, David Spade, and Rob Schneider in small roles, while Dan Akroyd plays the boys' captain.

ReviewSource ReelViews
Review It would be interesting to know what contribution (if any) credited screenwriter Alexander Payne (Election, Sideways) made to the final draft of I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. Except for the cloying, strident preachiness of the third act, this seems to be a standard issue Adam Sandler outing, with occasional bouts of laughter becoming bogged down by sophomoric jokes that aren't as funny as the production team expected them to be. Perhaps concerned that the overload of gay jokes might offend some audience members, I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry turns into a full defense of gay rights and an applause of gay culture, including appearances by Lance Bass and Richard Chamberlain...I suspect there's a core group of Sandler boosters who will watch the film and conclude that it's okay but not one of their hero's better efforts. For the rest of us, this is a hypocritical mess. I'm tempted to rip into the movie but I'm not going to because I didn't hate it as much as I have hated other things recently (License to Wed comes to mind) and it did make me laugh a few times. It's largely a mediocre, forgettable effort until it implodes in the final ten minutes. There's nothing here to appreciate for anyone who isn't a Sandler fan and, unfortunately, too little even for those who have dubbed themselves lifelong supporters.

Connie Ogle, Miami Herald Funny in the juvenile, crass way we expect.
Nathan Lee, The Village Voice Tremendously savvy in its stupid way, I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry is as eloquent as "Brokeback Mountain," and even more radical.
