I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry
Brooklyn firefighter Chuck (Kevin James) has a big problem: After spending too long mourning the death of his wife and the mother of their two children, he’s passed the time limit allowed to fix the paperwork concerning who gets what if he were to die one day on the job. He persuades his co-worker and best pal Larry (Adam Sandler) to join him in a scheme to defraud the city by taking advantage of the gay-friendly domestic partners pension plan. Of course, an investigator is set on the case and a hottie attorney (Jessica Biel) is assigned to counter the argument … and place temptation before Chuck. And the usual comedy template is trotted out: Men behaving offensively, followed by them realizing how badly they’ve been acting and straightening out. So to speak. All in all, a complete shambles, but still funny. Not as in quotable funny or even memorable funny … just sporadically amusing.
