I now pronounce you Chuck & Larry

Chuck and Larry are firemen who form a team that go in burning buildings together and come out together. While Chuck is a single chick-magnet, Larry has lost his wife and is living together with his two children, grieving over his wife who died some time ago. When Larry realises that he’s been neglecting his administration, he finds out that his dead wife is still beneficiary to his health insurance but when he tries to change that to his kids, he finds out that he’s way too late for that and that only when he gets remarried he’ll be able to make another changement.

When Larry saves Chucks life, Larry believes he’s found the solution to all his problems. Chuck owes him so Larry suggests they get “married” in Canada and then head back to New York to get an official paper that says they’re living together. However, after doing this, they find out that there are people actually checking these things and now they have to make sure everyone looks at them as a gay couple…

Sound and Vision:
Nothing bad to be said about the image quality, everything is just as it’s supposed to be. A very good transfer by Universal.

The soundtrack is even more impressive. The music really jumps out of your speakers while dialogues remain very understandable at all times.

Extras:
Two audio commentary tracks, a ton of deleted scenes, a standard Making Of divided into different pieces and a bunch of jokes. All together a nice bunch of extras.

Conclusion:
I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry is a great comedy if you like the more burlesque type of humour. Adam Sandler is his usual self (which means he’s quite funny) while there’s a very decent cast to support him. The story is quite oldfashioned and takes the easy way out with laughing about gay people, but if you don’t mind that, this one is certainly a comedy to check out.

Nothing to complain about the technical side and also the extras are worth to take a look at.

Our Score:
6.0
