SoTrumpBelieve Must See Movie...
Moustroll Good movie but grossly overrated
Aneesa Wardle The story, direction, characters, and writing/dialogue is akin to taking a tranquilizer shot to the neck, but everything else was so well done.
Tymon Sutton The acting is good, and the firecracker script has some excellent ideas.
MovieManChuck 1.5/4Adam Sandler and Kevin James are true veterans in the dumb-hilarious comedy genre, and I really enjoy most of their movies as well as their on-screen chemistry. However, "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry" misses the mark in terms of comedy, and could be perceived as offensive.To start, let me just say that Chuck and Larry would NEVER get made in 2018. With LGBTQ, gay-pride, and other pro-gay organizations dominating in America, this 2007 movie with (lots of) homophobic humor hasn't really aged too well. Considering I didn't see the movie until more than a decade after it's release, it starts to make sense why no one ever celebrates it as a great Sandler-James flick.While some of the humor was admittedly funny, they had a little too much to say. After awhile, Chuck and Larry were simply churning out homosexual stereotypes and passing them as clever jokes. Not only did the tone feel offensive to gays in general (until the final 3 minutes of the movie, where Sandler's characters apologizes for saying the word "f****t") but the gags were simply routine, and obviously not demanding much thought at all.Overall, the portrayal and theme were a little bit much, and the script was flat-out lazy. I was genuinely expecting more from Sandler and James. I have no idea why.
beauzee as relatable as this 2007 film is to "today", it does have a few issues in...what?...believability? would a raging heterosexual assume the role of "gay partner" to help out his buddy in his goal of assuring that if he passes (he and Adam are firefighters) his children will have a good parent, in Adam? (James lost his screen wife recently and he is preoccupied with her memory and the reality that he could die at work).there's some discomfort with the handling of the subject of "gay marriage" as a ton of clichés do get thru in the wild horseplay. but the script is brilliant, and so is the acting and comedy editing.I see Sandler here, as a combo of Jerry Lewis, Al Pacino, and ...Adam Sandler. Look, he's no "deep" artist...but he is great at what he does. Buy this comedy!
vannessamarovatsanga Do not address other Reviwers. Okay Fine. If you watch this film and think it's gay-bashing you do not know, that gay people have a sense of humour too.Ridiculous idea to start with, a surprisingly fun and engaging comedy.Tolerance and Acceptance and avoiding Fraud charges -key words,so lets goThe scene in the shower room after the lads find out about Chuck and Larry is Priceless. Like a lot of Adam Sandler films you still get the impression it's aimed at 20 year old boys with a 12 year old s mentality at times but it more than makes up for it with the fact that,unlike most comedies watched in this horrid horrid experiment of mine. It made me laugh. Copious amount of Laughter. And I would watch it again
Lobo Trujillo "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry" is a comedy that has you laughing throughout most of the movie. Chuck (Adam Sandler) & Larry (Kevin James) are a fantastic comedic duo that act gay in order to change the beneficiary benefits from Larry's death wife to his children. Everything is going fine until Clint Fitzer (Steve Buscemi) is trying to find out if this is a fraud, which it is, so Chuck & Larry are going to have to go to extreme faking gay in order to get Fitzer off their back. Lawyer Alex McDonough (Jessica Biel) also gets involved in this story actually believing that they are gay. It is a comedy that you can't miss, it will have you laughing, but also show you that everyone deserves a chance at love.
