An Adam Sandler comedy with serious moments and tackling serious issues...who saw that coming? I say that this is a film that ought to be judged precisely for what it is. It's not extraordinary and it's not preachy...it's simply a film that sends a message in a way that works for it. Well, message recieved. While this film is a comedy (come on, it's Adam Sandler), it's jokes are funny and do not really stray into the relm of being offensive. And, if it does so, it does so because it's supposed to and it is then handled with the proper respect and attitude. For me, Kevin James is the star of the film, but that could be largely because he stays pretty grounded in comparison to Mr. Sandler's antics, even if those antics remain pretty tame in comparison to some of the man's other works. I wasn't particularly impressed by Jessica Biel's performance, even if there seemed to be some genuine passion behind her character's actions. Overall, I think this film worked because individuals involved in the campaign for gay rights took part in this movie...it just give it this stronger sense of credibility, which is impressive as it's an Adam Sandler comedy. I'd reccomend it to anyone looking for some good laughs and/or an important message. Enjoy.
I thought the movie was very funny and the Sandler and James combo is golden. I still like the potty humor of Sandler's early days and miss the simple humor that causes you to get a cramp in your side from laughing so hard, but this more "mature" Sandler can still bring the laughs.
Such a funny movie! It's about 2 guys & they have to pretend their married & when they r suspected of being fake one of the guys doesn't expect to fall for the hot sexy lawyer (Jessica Beil) they get to defend them.& now he's stuck in the middle, continue helping his best friend & deceiving the world, & risk losing true love or not & risk hurting his best friend & possibly looking her anyways for all the lies! So funny & has romance!

This is a very funny movie. Two firemen have to pose as gay lovers living with each other so Chuck (Kevin) can try to get his benefits from his wife's death. Adam Sandler and Keven James are terrific as Chuck and Larry. Its a feel good movie with great characters and a good plot.

Chuck and Larry are firefighting partners. Larry, who still mourns the death of his wife, is having problems changing the beneficiary on his insurance policy from Paula's name to his children's.
Larry saves Chuck's life on one of their calls. So when Chuck tells Larry that he owes him one, Larry takes him up on his offer. Larry's favour, enter into a domestic partnership, in name and paper only, to provide that much needed protection for Larry's children.
Chuck reluctantly agrees. Their plan hits a snag when they get investigated by the pension department for possible fraud, which means that Chuck has to move in with him......
From the get go, it's clear that this film isn't going to be that politically correct, other than a few shots of Sandler punching people holding up signs that are not agreeable.
But we haven't watched this for maturity, we have seen this because we like Sandler and like James. They have really good chemistry in this, and make the film that little more watchable.
It's not the most trying of plots: two men pretending to be gay, avoiding Steve Buscemi, falling for Biel, being hated by their colleagues, big speech at the end.
All perfunctory stuff, a little too long for my liking, but there is so much fun to be had in the film, and you can tell that the cast and crew had fun making it.
Rhames is the standout here, as with all Sandler movies, it's not about him, it's the characters in the background who make the movie funny.
Well worth seeing if your a Sandler fan, and another to hate if your not.
3.0 out of 5 starsCrude rude and not up every one's street; ooh err sounds a bit rude.

I Know PronounceYouChuck and Larry is directed by Dennis Dugan and written by Barry Fanaro. It stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Jessica Biel, Dan Aykroyd, Peter Dante, Ving Rhames and Steve Buscemi. Plot finds Kevin James' widowed fireman in need of a way to ensure his two children get benefits should he leave the mortal coil. There's a chance, he just has to pretend he's gay and marry his best pal and work colleague, Chuck Levine (Sandler). Not easy since Chuck is a renowned womaniser and not all that keen to keep up the pretense. With their gorgeous lawyer Alex McDonough (Biel) stirring up passions in Chuck that he has to hide, and the fraud investigator (Buscemi) on their case, it will be a minor miracle if the lads can pull the bluff off.
It was originally an R rated movie, the MPAA forcing Universal Pictures to edit the film down to a PG-13 standard. What is left is often crude, rude and apparently offensive to, well, everyone if you believe some critics of the film. I sense that many people outside of the target audience haven't grasped a key issue, namely that the film obviously has a big potent message about tolerance. Now ask yourself what sort of people would go and see an Adam Sandler film reeling off a number of gay innuendo jokes and set pieces? Tell me, where is it more likely to make its point than with the target audience for this film? I know, food for thought isn't it?
It's hardly genius comedy, but James and Sandler make a great comedy double act. The jokes don't all work, but there are some genuinely laugh out loud moments if you are prepared to run with it in the name of getting the message come the last quarter. Biel is sexy and vibrant, while Buscemi does what he always tends to do, walk into a movie and leave a crazy and memorable little mark. Bonus here is Rhames, totally playing against type whilst also playing to a stereotype, again this is fun in context to the movie as a whole. We could do without Rob Schneider's (uncredited) Asian stereotype, because that one is an offensive misstep, while there's a big cop out during the big finale. A wasted chance to really seal the deal for equality and acceptance.
It's easy to attack a film like this, venting spleen wholesale whilst looking like a champion for good taste in cinema. But I for one maintain that it's not only a funny film, but also a brave and relevant one as well. 6.5/10

Quick delivery and super funny film. Many great one liners and super connection between the main actors. Some rude jokes but was so funny and the ending was heartwarming. Good viewing for a friday night in.
Despite the sometimes slapstick and superficial treatment of parts of the storyline, there is a sensible and sensitive line running through the characters and the plot and some of the underlying issues it covers. If you take it at face value and not get too cynical about it then I think it's a highly enjoyable comedy film. And since it is a comedy, why not also enjoy the slapstick elements. There is a very warmhearted messages too, so anyone who wants to see it that way, there is a layer of "humanity" beneath the gags.
