  • Summary: Chuck and Larry are the pride of their fire station: tow guy's guys always side-by-side and willing to do anything for each other. Grateful Chuck owes Larry his life, and Larry, a widower, calls in that favor big time when civic red tape prevents him from naming his own two kids as his life insurance beneficiaries. All 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 form confidential to the front page news. (Universal Pictures)

    Funny in the juvenile, crass way we expect.
  2. 60
    If nothing else, Chuck & Larry should open up a whole new career path for the ineffably funny, unselfconsciously buck-naked Ving Rhames as an übermacho firefighter who’s been sitting on a little secret of his own.
  3. Sporadically funny, casually sexist, blithely racist and about as visually sophisticated as a parking-garage surveillance video.
  4. Directed with his usual flair for the obvious by Dennis Dugan ("The Benchwarmers), "Chuck and Larry" has the nowness factor of a Polish joke. Does anybody laugh at this stuff anymore?
  5. 40
    Fails to deliver on its main promise of big laughs, which is the film's truly unforgivable sin.
  6. Formulaic 'Chuck & Larry' is a crass, unfulfilling effort.
  7. Comedy that seems designed to be as bad as it can be.

    Are you kidding me? This movie was HILARIOUS. I've read so much crazy criticisms of this movie it's ridiculous. You've got half saying it's offensive to homosexuals and half saying it's offensive to Christians. Yes, it's a pro-gay movie (which is great) and it wouldn't be able to show true empathy without showing the offensive side to homosexuals first. The ONLY reason this movie has bad reviews is that critics don't like Sandler at all, or they have a problem with dealing with homosexuality issues. Cheers to Kevin James and the Sandman for taking this on, it was awesome. Expand

    I was surprised to see such negative reviews. I thought the movie was one of Sandler's funniest! I'm sure this movie must of offended many people however. as a big fan of Kevin James I thought the chemistry worked between him and Sandler very well. Expand

    This movie is FUNNY. It looked funny from the previews, and it did not disappoint. Yes, there were sections that I thought were a bit inappropriate. But, most of them were with meaning. This isn't a movie where Sandler has to go over the top, either. Just a fun movie. Expand

    Gay is not a race, it can, however, have prejudices against its idea. The humor is decent, not A grade by any means, but it still is laughable if you have any decency to accept crude humor. I only laughed at some parts, and wasn't intrigued by the plot. Assuming someone is shallow by laughing at gay jokes is ironically a mishap, since it just started this era that its viewed upon as immoral. Unfortunately, you have to be narrow-minded to take offense to a movie that still has a decent moral on accepting gays who they are. Please, give some intelligent criticism rather then a blatantly obvious bias. Expand

    Unfunny, overly long, and painful to sit through after Sandler's great job in Reign over Me. Now I know why this film is slated for a Nov 20 release on DVD....IMO - straight to DVD would have been a better plan! Expand

    The humor in this movie is too juvenile even for Happy Madison standards. It's also an insult to to any gays or lesbians. Adam... what went through your head when you greenlit this film? Expand

    Totally worthless, unfunny, and moronic recycled junior high trash talk.
