I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry is a 2007 comedy directed by Dennis Dugan. Bachelor Charles "Chuck" Levine (Adam Sandler) and widower Lawrence "Larry" Valentine (Kevin James) are New York City firefighters. As the men are fighting a fire one day, Larry saves Chuck's life when he falls through some burned boards on the second floor of a home. After that incident, Chuck tells Larry that he is indebted to him. Larry wants to add his two children, Eric (Cole Morgen) and Tori (Shelby Adamowsky), as his life insurance beneficiaries, but he will only be able to do it if he gets married. When Larry asks Chuck to enter into a sham marriage with him, Chuck, who is a promiscuous ladies' man, reluctantly agrees. After a hilarious wedding at Niagara Falls, Chuck moves into Larry's home. As the straight men attempt to keep up the charade that they are homosexuals, they face many challenges from people who are suspicious of their union. Things also start to get complicated when Chuck starts to fall in love with beautiful lawyer Alex McDonough (Jessica Biel), one of the only people who believes that the men's marriage is real.

Metacritic Score

  • 60

    Variety Brian Lowry

    The kind of buddy comedy Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau might have starred in 40 years ago, when the material would have felt less dated, if no less silly.

  • 50

    The New York Times Manohla Dargis

    Sporadically funny, casually sexist, blithely racist and about as visually sophisticated as a parking-garage surveillance video.

  • 40

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Crust

    Fails to deliver on its main promise of big laughs, which is the film's truly unforgivable sin.
