Widower Larry, who still mourns the death of his wife Paula, is having problems changing the beneficiary on his insurance policy from Paula’s name to his children’s. He is worried about his children’s future if he were to be killed in the line of duty, and is contemplating quitting his job for something less risky, but he also does not want to forfeit his firefighter’s pension as he also see it as a safety net for his children. 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 favor: despite both being heterosexual, that they enter into a domestic partnership, in name and paper only, to provide that much needed protection for Larry’s children. Chronic womanizer Chuck reluctantly but eventually agrees. The one person who knows for a certainty that they are both straight is their boss, Captain Phineas J. Tucker. Their plan hits a snag when Larry believes that they are being investigated by the pension department for possible fraud, which means that Chuck has to move in with him and his kids. They consult the advice of a lawyer, Alex McDonough, who adds an extra layer of complexity to the situation as Chuck in particular is attracted to her and believes she could be the one and only for him. Her legal advice coupled with her wanting Chuck to be her new best girlfriend makes it even harder on him.
Plot: Firefighters Chuck Ford and Larry Valentine are guy’s guys, loyal to the core—which is why when widower Larry asks Chuck to pose as his gay lover so that he can get domestic partner benefits for his kids, his buddy agrees. However, things get dicey when a bureaucrat comes calling, and the boys are forced to present a picture of domestic bliss.

Quite a bit better than advertised
In “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry,” Adam Sandler and Kevin James play two New York City fire fighters who pretend to be gay so that Larry’s two kids can be raised by Chuck in the event of Larry’s untimely death (Larry’s wife has been dead for two years and he has not been able to bring himself to date another woman in all that time). The hitch is that to bring this about, the two of them will have to officially register as “domestic partners.” Originally, they intend on keeping their “relationship” a secret, but when the government starts sending inspectors around to verify the validity of their claim, Chuck and Larry are left with the choice of admitting to the scam and going to jail or convincing everyone around them that they are indeed an actual couple.
As a “high concept” comedy, “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry” is pretty much a contrived manufacture from the get-go, mixing equal parts humor and sentiment in an attempt to play to the broadest possible audience – which is probably the only way the filmmakers could reasonably have gone with material this dicey. Yet, while the movie traffics in any number of lame stereotypes (gay as well as ethnic), it also has some important things to say about equality and acceptance in an ever changing world. The script achieves about a 50/50 ration in its humor – about half the jokes are zingers while the other half are clunkers – but the movie’s heart is definitely in the right place, so much so that you will forgive the filmmakers when the story turns all heavy-handed and preachy towards the end, in what is surely one of the least plausible courtroom scenes in motion picture history. As compensation, the movie actually places its characters in some pretty sticky moral dilemmas at times, the prime one being that, much as we may like and admire Chuck and Larry for all the social barriers they are tearing down, we still hear that little nagging voice in the back of our heads telling us that they are defrauding the public and breaking the law while doing so. Such moral ambiguity is actually a pretty rare commodity for a mainstream American comedy these days.
Sandler and James imbue their roles with a great deal of charm and gusto, and they receive strong support from Dan Aykroyd, Jessica Biel, Ving Rhames and Steve Buscemi.
“I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry” certainly isn’t up to the level of “Knocked Up” or “Superbad,” its summer 2007 comedy contemporaries, but neither is it the cinematic disaster most of the critics have accused it of being. It’s an uneven but largely likable romp that makes you feel good about the world when it’s over.
I Could Use Some Toilet Tissue In Here
I NOW PRONOUNCE YOU CHUCK & LARRY concerns two aggressively heterosexual fire fighters, Chuck (Sandler) and Larry (Kevin James) who get legally married for insurance purposes and then find themselves forced to play out the roles of husband and husband. It’s hardly original, but in the hands of a master of bad-taste comedy it might have been very funny. Unfortunately, director Dennis Dugan ain’t no Mel Brooks–and Adam Sandler sure ain’t no Cleavon Little.
Throughout the film Sandler is presented as a mighty stud and a chick super magnet–but given that Sandler is about as sexy as Wally Cox this is even more improbable than the plot itself. We are also very obviously supposed to like him–but given that he spends the film finding ways to be obnoxious to every one who crosses his path it isn’t possible to do so. I could overlook this if the film was actually funny, but it isn’t: there’s no wit, no cleverness, no originality, and most damning of all no heart. We feel nothing for these people except, perhaps, a sense of gratitude that we aren’t like them.
When all is said and done, I NOW PRONOUNCE YOU CHUCK & LARRY is simply a parade of unoriginal insults with a few minutes of “aw, shucks, folks! We didn’t really mean to offend anybody” tacked on at the end. Nothing is more excruciating than an unfunny comedy except a dull unfunny comedy, and this is all of that with a Hallmark card thrown in for good measure.
The DVD includes several bonuses, including a couple of audio tracks with Sandler, the director, and so on–but I can’t comment on them because I couldn’t be bothered to learn more about a movie that was so tiresome in the first place. If you’re in the mood for bad-taste comedy, pick up a copy of PORKY’S, American PIE, or better yet the classic BLAZING SADDLES instead. Not only are they actually funny, they also have heart.
