I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry

  • I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry
  • Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Jessica Biel, Steve Buscemi, Ving Rhames
  • Directed by David Dobkin

Say it isn't so. Not that Adam Sander as Chuck and Kevin James as Larry play idiot hetero fireman who fake being gay for health benefits. I mean that Sideways writers Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor actually contributed to a script that trots out every fag joke — yes, even dropping the soap — and then tells us how wrong it is to laugh. No comedy this year can beat this dud for mealy-mouthed hypocrisy.
