TOP 100 MOVIES in 2007!
Chuck Levine (Adam Sandler) and Larry Valentine (Kevin James) are the pride of their fire station: two guy's guys always side-by-side and willing to do anything for each other. 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. 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.
Movie Reviews: Robert's Review
"I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry" started out pretty slow and unpolished, but soon after became a hilarious and surprisingly preachy movie that climaxed in an all-out good time with a strong message of tolerance and freedom. I never expected an Adam Sandler movie to have such a strong message, but this particular message was well done. Along with Sandler and James, Jessica Biel, Steve Buscemi, Dan Aykroyd and Ving Rhames co-star, plus Sandler bring his whole crew with him (which is becoming quite common in his movies). It's clear that during most of the movie nothing is taken too seriously (such as the acting, the characters, the plot, etc) and the actors are basically just goofing around and having fun (much like in Sandler's older movies). While Jessica Biel was certainly a welcome addition to the movie and exceptionally pleasing to the eyes, ears and thoughts of many moviegoers (myself included), I'd have to say the highlight of the movie for me was Ving Rhames' performance. He had me laughing so hard that I nearly fell out of my chair several times. Overall, at times this movie is extremely funny, at times it's very preachy, at other times it's just silly and strange, but in the end I had a great time and came away from the theater with a smile on my face and some good food for thought.
All in all, I'd give this movie 3.5 Domestic Partnerships (out of 5). Re-watch value: MEDIUM
Movie Reviews: Brett's Review
I really enjoyed this movie for many reasons, the biggest being that it seemed Adam Sandler was back doing what he does best; it gave me a feeling of "Billy Madison" or "Happy Gilmore" with Sandler just having fun. The movie also explored how sometimes the system breaks down and completely sucks, and it was just plain funny. The story elements were creative and the acting was great. Jessica Biel was completely hot, Dan Aykroyd and Ving Rhames were awesome, and I felt the entire cast had a really good chemistry working together. Overall, it was a really enjoyable movie that was fun to watch.
Overall Rating: 3.5 Stars (out of 5). Re-Watch Value: High (I will purchase on DVD.)
