I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry
Chuck And Larry In Theaters
Adam Sandler and Kevin James (TV's "The King of Queens") team as two straight guys who stumble down the aisle with the best of intentions in "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry." Chuck Ford (Sandler) and Larry Allensworth (James) are the pride of their fire station: two guy's guys always side-by-side and willing to do anything for each other. Salt-of-the-earth widower Larry wants just one thing: to protect his family. His buddy Chuck also wants one thing: to enjoy the single life. Grateful Chuck owes Larry for saving his life in a fire, and Larry calls in that favor big time when civic red tape prevents him from naming his own two kids as his life insurance beneficiaries. All that Chuck has to do is claim to be Larry's domestic partner on some city forms. Easy. Nobody will ever know. But when an overzealous, spot-checking bureaucrat becomes suspicious, the new couple's arrangement becomes a citywide issue and goes from confidential to front-page news. Forced to improvise as love-struck newlyweds, Chuck and Larry must now fumble through a hilarious charade of domestic bliss under one roof. After surviving their mandatory honeymoon and dodging the threat of exposure, the well-intentioned con men discover that sticking together in your time of need is what truly makes a family - "I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry."

Wild About Movies Grade: F
Two gay movies are opening July 20th, 2007. One, a masterpiece, will stand the test of time, as did its predicecsor, the original 1988 non-musical version film of the same name has. The other, this utterly repulsive, shame-on-you film from Universal Studios and Adam Sandler. In this, 2007, when gay marriage is LEGAL in many states, the jokes in this film, which are at the expense of real gays, (whom Adam Sandler and Kevin James fraudulently portray), are not only offensive but shocking, in that, again, this is 2007. More puzzling, GLAAD, the nonsensical 'gay rights' advocacy group called for a boycott on not "Chuck & Larry," (which Wild About Movies think is nonsensical - calling for boycotts only add to the free publicity of the person, item or object targeted), but "Hairspray," because... they say, "John Travolta, a Scientologist, should not be being paid to play a gay role since his religion condemns homsexuality." First, Travolta's role in "Hairspray" is not gay, per se. He plays a woman. Not a man, in drag, playing a woman. The reason why the movie is 'gay' is that it is a musical, created by the gay pioneer filmmaker John Waters, directed by the openly gay Adam Shankman and will appeal primarily to a gay audience. "I Now Pronounce Chuck And Larry" - Frauds!
