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.
