I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry
If you can tolerate gay jokes, scantly clad girls and more gay jokes, you’ll definitely want to see the comedy, I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. Chuck Levine (Adam Sandler) and Larry Valentine (Kevin James) are New York City firefighters and best friends. Larry is a struggling widower with two children because a legal technicality keeps him from collecting his dead wife’s pension for several months. Then, during a fire, a building is about to collapse on Chuck when Larry saves his life. Now it seems that Chuck owes poor old Larry a favor, so Larry asks him to pretend that he’s gay and become his domestic partner. (This is just about the time when I hoping the theater would fall in on me.) Larry and Chuck are forced to hire a dutiful lawyer (Well, they weren’t forced to hire her but she was pretty, so!) named Alex McDonough (Jessica Biel) to save them from criminal charges because of an over-zealous bureaucrat. Some people are going to say this is a silly mindless film. (Yes, most of the people will be women) The majority of the jokes are stereotypical, all of the gays are characterizations and Jessica Biel prances around in her underwear during one scene. Like most guys, I’m not sure if those are good or bad points. It doesn’t matter if my eyesight isn’t 20-20 or my I.Q. isn’t 200, I was there to be entertained. This is definitely not one of Sandler’s best films and it certainly wasn’t hilarious, but I did have fun and I’m giving it a C+ rating.
This movie has been given a PG13 rating by the MPAA
Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
