I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry

How far would you go for a friend?


I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry
A kinda-remake of ''Some Like it Hot'', but set amongst fire-fighters in New York. A recently widowed man finds himself the victim of red tape which prevents him naming his kids as heirs. So he persuades his best mate, a notorious womaniser, to pretend to be his gay partner, just for the paperwork. Unfortunately, someone smells a rat and decides to investigate, forcing the two men to perpetuate the fraud in front of everyone, especially when it makes front page news. The critics were largely dismissive.

115 minutes.

Alistair Fairweather quote iconIf you like your jokes tepid, your racial stereotypes loud and your homophobia guilt-ridden, then Chuck and Larry is your kind of movie.
1
Box Office
Wade Major quote iconAs if audiences needed another hackneyed rehash of Some Like It Hot, along comes I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, a wholly unsubtle and tonally inconsistent refashioning of the classic Billy Wilder comedy.
