The film's given rating may be slightly lower than "Billy Madison" because of being mediocrely weird at a faltered approach, even when it's more comedic with the dynamic duo of the comedy genre. However, the idea might've been squandered when being overshadowed. (C)
The reason this movie is so great is not Chuck (Adam Sandler) and Larry (Kevin James). It's the supporting cast that got all my laughs. Ving Rhames is the winner in this flick. He's the one responsible for the title of this blog. His "I'm Every Woman" shower scene killed. I thoroughly enjoyed his "Bad Ass" tattoo. I'll let you guess where it's located. Steve Buscemi plays a super creep fully equipped with fanny pack. I almost fell out of my bed when I saw Dave Matthews. He has zero lines and he was still fucking excellent! Recent SNL alum suit up as well as cast members from Sandler's day, Rob Schneider & David Spade. Both show up in all their glory. Spade a little more glorious than Schneider. Chuck and Larry are great and I fully appreciate all the gay supporting themes. The reason to see this movie though is most definitely the supporting cast. So, I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry gets my seal of approval.
Ever since Kevin James joined Adam Sandler, the films only got worse. Kevin's humor is just lazy, and when he tries to get his inspiration from the late Chris Farley, how does he treat it? I'll label that with six words, WAY TOO HARD, AND BEYOND DESPERATE! Oh, I haven't forgotten about you Adam! He doesn't even care. Why should we!?
this movie was freakin hilarious. they picked the 2 perfect guys for the part and how they got ving rhames to play gay ill never, ever know but it made the movie even funnier than it already was. if u dont think this movie is hilarious then you have absolutely no sense of humor at all!!!
When seeing that Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor wrote I Now Pronounced you Chuck and Larry, I was very curious to see where it's gonna go. That is until I heard that Alexander Payne hated what has become of the script because Adam Sandler changed a lot of it to the point of it almost completely unrecognizable. So I was wondering about how bad it can be, and after watching it, I Now Pronounced you Chuck and Larry is not as terrible as I thought was going to be, but it's still a bad movie that could've been so much better. The acting is fine, and Adam Sandler's character is not as much of a jerk in this as his other films which makes it not as intolerable to watch. For the jokes, like 70% of the movie is not funny at all, but the other 30% actually gave me a laugh which I never thought would happen for a recent Adam Sandler, until Hotel Transylvania comes up that is. The way of portraying gay people is not correct and it feels like they were making fun of them rather in a good and funny way. Rob Schneider as an Asian minister felt very racist to Asian people and he wasn't even funny which made it even worse. The plot is predictable, and there were moments that were just there to keep the movie going. So while I Now Pronounce you Chuck and Larry isn't the worst film that stars Adam Sandler and Kevin James, and is not NEARLY Adam Sandler's worst one, but it's a disappointing movie that would've been better if the movie uses Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor's take on the movie.
