Critic Reviews for I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry

All Critics (160) | Top Critics (42)

While it's very easy to eviscerate Chuck and Larry from an activist point of view, all one really has to do to slam the flick is look at the lazy, contrived writing and the traffic-cop direction by frequent Sandler accomplice Dennis Dugan.

What truly makes [the film] so detestable is its disingenuous attempt to justify itself with a tacked-on call for acceptance of all people and lifestyles.

DVD Review

They could have focused more on the similarities of best friends and a gay couple. Instead, they just try to offend everyone in sight and then act sorry at the end.

The Scorecard Review

You know a movie is going to be bad when Rob Schneider shows up as a Chinese wedding chapel minister. No, come to think of it, you know a movie is going to be bad when Rob Schneider shows up at all

Above all the idiotic shenanigans and brutally offensive conversation, Chuck & Larry is flat-out a badly made movie.

Hilarious comedy about two bestfriends who get married to benefit from the work pension fund after one friend was widowed. It's funny from start to finish. Great cameos from lots of well known actors. Highly recommended.

Not as funny as I thought it could be, I love Kevin James ('The King of Queens' rocks) but this just isn't up there. Really wanted to love it but just found myself struggling to smile, as for Adam Sandler..his character is just the same as every other comedy character he plays, getting rather dull now methinks.

The story is kinda cool, two men pretending to be gay is always a show stopper haha and there are some good moments like Sandler slapping James' face and James pretending to love it, but nothing special. Just the usual, predictable lines and ending really, stick with 'King of Queens' and some of Sandlers earlier films where his everyman portrayal is at its original best.
