  • It's a set-up as muddled as the sexual politics of this mortifying would-be comedy,

  • In essence Dennis Duggan's film is patronising and a little degrading.

  • I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry is a comedy of masquerade that Shakespeare might have written if he were pea-brained and talentless and had been commissioned to script an Adam Sandler movie.

  • My faith in a beneficent God, never strong, has been shattered by news that Alexander Payne contributed to the screenplay for this horrific new Adam Sandler vehicle.

  • The film-makers behind I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry would probably claim a message of tolerance and personal growth, but this woeful Adam Sandler vehicle is as nasty a piece of sniggering homophobia as I have seen in a long time.

    Actually not that bad, it's not Sandler's best but definitely not his worst, still watchable in terms of the ground breaking topic and the slapstick humour.

    I Know Pronounce You Chuck and Larry is one of the worst comedies I have seen in quite some. Starring Adam Sandler and Kevin James, this film is a missed opportunity to do something good. However the film has limitations, including a very bad script. Adam Sandler is no longer funny, and Kevin James is a very poor actor and comedian. I've never laughed at his stuff, and I find painful to watch. I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry is a poor comedy that suffers from a bad script, bad comic gags, although some parts made me smile, it wasn't enough to save this film from being a horrible waste of time. This might have been a good flick if it wasn't for the people involved, but the thing is almost anything produced by Happy Madison Productions will suck. In this case the few actually comic bits are decent, but miss the mark altogether because the jokes don't hold up well after a few viewings. So in the end, this film awfully bad, and not worth your time. Watching paint dry is more amusing than watching this film. This is a poor film that has nothing to offer. The film is horrible, and it really has strained comedic elements to make this an annoying, insulting comedy. I hated the film, and overall it was a pointless waste of time. I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry is an uninspired comedy that isn't worth seeing. Avoid it if you have a chance.

    I Know Pronounce You Chuck and Larry is a movie that I think disrespects the gay community and honestly was not funny at all. Never before has a Sandler movie been so offensive and so terrible, it also is just not funny, at all, in no way, and if somebody thinks it is funny than it must not be hard to make you laugh.
