I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry

Adam Sandler has struck again! His new comedy “I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry” opened in theatres July 20. Not to this reviewer’s surprise, Sandler again tests the boundaries of controversial issues in today’s society. In this movie, he tackles Domestic Partnership, as ing Gay and Lesbian couples' right to marry.

However, in this movie there is a catch, the leading men in this movie are only pretending to be gay for the financial benefits. Adam Sandler and Kevin James do a good job as a stereotypical gay couple.

The movie has brief scenes of nudity from the backside. It tends to emphasize the stereotypes on positive and negative sides. The film will probably upset both the gay community and the Christian community for the way stereotypes are portrayed. Given some of the other movies that Adam Sandler has made, I don’t think he’ll mind that kind of response.

I have heard many of my friends say they are “dying to see” this movie. I cannot say that I was. But I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome of it. Some people claim that Chuck and Larry is a remake of “Strange Bedfellows” a 2004 Australian film, starring Paul Hogan, but nothing is official.

The supporting cast of the movie does a great job, particularly Ving Rhames, Jessica Biel, and Steve Buscemi. Overall, if you like Adam Sandler movies this one won’t disappoint. If your not big on the topic, like I was, give it a chance. The film was surprisingly good.
