If you don’t care too much for Adam Sandler’s comedies, then I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry is absolutely not the film to convert you. But if you are one of the many who continually enjoys his films, then his latest is well worth checking out.

I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry sees Sandler as Chuck and Kevin James as Larry, a pair of firefighters who become domestic partners to help protect the latter’s children. It perhaps goes without saying that this is a reluctant union, and Sandler’s character goes to great lengths to demonstrate the fact that he’s heterosexual. Yet if you can tolerate the cheapness of much of the material, it’s hard not to find yourself chuckling at it.

The film boasts a supporting cast including the likes of Jessica Biel (as a conveniently attractive lawyer), Ving Rhames and Steve Buscemi, and does manage to consistently serve up the laughs. It also finds room to squeeze in Dan Aykroyd and Rob Schneider as well.

And while there’s nothing particularly clever about I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry, it very much does what it offers on the proverbial tin. It’s Sandler, in a fish out of water situation, reacting against it. Switch your brain and sensitivities off, and you may well have a ball with it. --Jon Foster

Product Description

Adam Sandler and Kevin James star as best friends and fellow fire-fighters Chuck and Larry, the pride of their Brooklyn fire station. Chuck owes Larry for saving his life. Larry calls in that favour big-time by asking Chuck to pose as his "domestic partner" so his kids will get his pension. But when a pen-pushing bureaucrat (Steve Buscemi) becomes suspicious, the two straight tough-guys must stumble through an outrageous charade as love-struck newlyweds! Jessica Biel, Ving Rhames and Dan Aykroyd co-star in this hilarious comedy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious - great for a cheery night in! 30 Jun 2009
By Lucy Felthouse TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
I picked this up for next to nothing in a sale. I quite like some of Adam Sandler's stuff and I also like comedies, so it was a case of - why not?

I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry stars Adam Sandler as Chuck and Kevin James as Larry, a pair of firefighters who become domestic partners to help protect Larry's children. The two guys are about as far from gay as you can get, and the whole thing is a totally hare-brained idea. However, they're determined to make it work for the sake of Larry's children and so they have to go whole hog - moving in together, sharing the same bed, being all lovey-dovey when the postman knocks at the door, and so on. The government, though, are not convinced and so they set their equivalent of a Rottweiler on them to investigate everything about them and blow their 'partnership' out of the water.

The story continues as the two guys try their hardest to play the genuine gay couple and find out a lot about themselves and their friends in the process, to a climactic ending.

This was a really fun film. Yes, the plot is daft, but I thought it was hilarious. You don't need to think about it and it's so unrealistic its untrue, but suspend your disbelief and just enjoy. I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed this 26 Aug 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Despite the sometimes slapstick and superficial treatment of parts of the storyline, there is a sensible and sensitive line running through the characters and the plot and some of the underlying issues it covers. If you take it at face value and not get too cynical about it then I think it's a highly enjoyable comedy film. And since it is a comedy, why not also enjoy the slapstick elements. There is a very warmhearted messages too, so anyone who wants to see it that way, there is a layer of "humanity" beneath the gags.

Warmly recommended

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm every woman.... 4 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Chuck and Larry are firefighting partners. Larry, who still mourns the death of his wife, is having problems changing the beneficiary on his insurance policy from Paula's name to his children's.

Larry saves Chuck's life on one of their calls. So when Chuck tells Larry that he owes him one, Larry takes him up on his offer. Larry's favour, enter into a domestic partnership, in name and paper only, to provide that much needed protection for Larry's children.

Chuck reluctantly agrees. Their plan hits a snag when they get investigated by the pension department for possible fraud, which means that Chuck has to move in with him......

From the get go, it's clear that this film isn't going to be that politically correct, other than a few shots of Sandler punching people holding up signs that are not agreeable.

But we haven't watched this for maturity, we have seen this because we like Sandler and like James. They have really good chemistry in this, and make the film that little more watchable.

It's not the most trying of plots: two men pretending to be gay, avoiding Steve Buscemi, falling for Biel, being hated by their colleagues, big speech at the end.

All perfunctory stuff, a little too long for my liking, but there is so much fun to be had in the film, and you can tell that the cast and crew had fun making it.

Rhames is the standout here, as with all Sandler movies, it's not about him, it's the characters in the background who make the movie funny.

Well worth seeing if your a Sandler fan, and another to hate if your not.

I Know Pronounce You Chuck and Larry is directed by Dennis Dugan and written by Barry Fanaro. It stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Jessica Biel, Dan Aykroyd, Peter Dante, Ving Rhames and Steve Buscemi. Plot finds Kevin James' widowed fireman in need of a way to ensure his two children get benefits should he leave the mortal coil. There's a chance, he just has to pretend he's gay and marry his best pal and work colleague, Chuck Levine (Sandler). Not easy since Chuck is a renowned womaniser and not all that keen to keep up the pretense. With their gorgeous lawyer Alex McDonough (Biel) stirring up passions in Chuck that he has to hide, and the fraud investigator (Buscemi) on their case, it will be a minor miracle if the lads can pull the bluff off.

It was originally an R rated movie, the MPAA forcing Universal Pictures to edit the film down to a PG-13 standard. What is left is often crude, rude and apparently offensive to, well, everyone if you believe some critics of the film. I sense that many people outside of the target audience haven't grasped a key issue, namely that the film obviously has a big potent message about tolerance. Now ask yourself what sort of people would go and see an Adam Sandler film reeling off a number of gay innuendo jokes and set pieces? Tell me, where is it more likely to make its point than with the target audience for this film? I know, food for thought isn't it?

It's hardly genius comedy, but James and Sandler make a great comedy double act. The jokes don't all work, but there are some genuinely laugh out loud moments if you are prepared to run with it in the name of getting the message come the last quarter. Biel is sexy and vibrant, while Buscemi does what he always tends to do, walk into a movie and leave a crazy and memorable little mark.
