Consensus: Whether by way of inept comedy or tasteless stereotypes, I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry falters on both levels.

David Ansen

There is something to be said for a movie that may end up preaching, for a change, to the unconverted. If only the laughs were bigger, smarter and more frequent than they are.

Joanne Kaufman
Wall Street Journal

I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry manages to insult gays, straights, men, women, children, African-Americans, Asians, pastors, mailmen, insurance adjusters, firemen, doctors -- and fans of show music. That's championship stuff.

While it's very easy to eviscerate Chuck and Larry from an activist point of view, all one really has to do to slam the flick is look at the lazy, contrived writing and the traffic-cop direction by frequent Sandler accomplice Dennis Dugan.

Ebert & Roeper

The premise is older than the pilot for Three's Company, and just as unfunny.

Claudia Puig
USA Today

With a tacked-on PC message and leaden attempts at humor, I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry is a movie that gives marriage, homosexuality, friendship, firefighters, children and nearly everything else a bad name.

Good intentions can only carry these films so far, and this one falls woefully short.

Geoff Pevere
Toronto Star

Chuck and Larry remains something close to remarkable: an Adam Sandler movie that manages to be crude and caring in equal measure. In the multiplex, this is called progress.

DVD Review

What truly makes [the film] so detestable is its disingenuous attempt to justify itself with a tacked-on call for acceptance of all people and lifestyles.

Audiences love when a fat fireman marries a skinny fireman due to money problems. Now who thought that was a good idea?

Adam Sandler is back at his best, although the ending was predictable you couldn't help but laugh at the hilarious amount of scenes this film has. A must… More
