Veering between kneejerk homophobia and PC proselytising for gay rights - often in the same scene - Dennis Dugan's comedy is an unhappy union.

The closing message claims to promote tolerance, but this remains a lads' comedy: it's all about sniggering at pansies and peeking up girls' skirts. And even that market deserves something funnier.

Not so much gay as bloody miserable.

With ribald and stale jokes at odds with the slender social message, this wedding piece crashes and burns amid its own hypocrisy.

Enjoyable, sharply written and frequently hilarious, this is Adam Sandler's best comedy since The Wedding Singer.

For my taste, "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry" is a less than perfect union.

Would be less offensive with a title like "Ladies and Gentlemen, The Bronx is Flaming."

Taking offense to a film about tolerance just because it's aimed squarely at Middle America is itself intolerant. Chuck and Larry's crime is it doesn't maintain its most audacious bits and it's never funny enough.

This film is made for less discerning tastes; that is, for those viewers to whom a running gag that has Sandler sitting in kid-sized chairs that inevitably break from under him is the pinnacle of hilarity.

Ving Rhames gets it in a way that Adam Sandler never will.

There's nothing believable in Chuck and Larry, but with its ultra likeable cast, there is some fun to be had, despite the politically incorrect, homophobic, trite, dated and predictable laughs it generates.

The makers of Chuck & Larry probably think they've accomplished something meaningful, but what they've really done is make a gay Soul Man.

While constantly spouting its be-kind-to-your-neighborhood-queer sermons, every dated, vicious stereotype of being a homosexual is dragged out again and again in this Adam Sandler vehicle.

James has a big screen quality that reminded me of Chris Farley, who could also find a way to be both sweet and funny

There's a good movie to be found in [here], but it's repeatedly sabotaged by the desire to placate typical Sandler fans who, God forbid, wouldn't want their boy to get too, you know, fruity on them.

An arranged fiasco that should have been annulled back in the planning stages

When it isn't stupid and offensive, it's stupid and condescending -- I now pronounce I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry a four-alarm flaming pile of crap.

The laugh to wince factor is about five to two in favor of winces.

The movie is trying to tell you that gays are people too. Sure they're icky, embarrassing people, but you should still be nice to them.
