Hey Jack & Diane, Meet Chuck & Larry!
Please click on units!
With a tagline as goofy as this one, "They're as straight as can be, but don't tell anyone." you know you're in for twists, turns, chuckles, giggles and guffaws!
Starring Kevin James as the widowed father and Adam Sandler as his best friend (Dan Ackroyd also appears) the premise of a make-believe gay marriage or domestic partnership to get health benefits and pension for his two children may even generate a few snorts!
Chuck Levine and Larry Valentine are the pride of their fire station; two guys always side-by-side and willing to do anything for each other. Grateful Chuck owes Larry for saving his life in a fire, Larry calls in that favor big time when civic red tape prevents him from naming his own two kids as his life insurance beneficiaries.
All that Chuck has to do is claim to be Larry's domestic partner on some city forms. But when an overzealous bureaucrat becomes suspicious, the new couple's arrangement becomes a citywide issue and goes from confidential to front page news. Forced to improvise as love struck newlyweds, Chuck and Larry must now fumble through a hilarious charade of domestic bliss under one roof.
After surviving their mandatory honeymoon and dodging the treat of exposure, the well intentioned con men discover that sticking together in your time of need is what truly makes a family.
The "Chuck & Larry" banner jumps out at you, morphs, expands and offers multiple functions:
- Two different trailer spots
- A trailer for the Ryder Cup
- Summary of the story
From there you're into the site landing page, where you'll find wallpaper, icons video clips and story synopsis as well as a quiz "What Would You Do For a Friend?. There are multiple functions in the unit, each of which gives you a better sense of just what the film will deliver, without giving it all away.
The content is great. The game and quiz is even cooler. It invites users to, "learn what it takes to be a true hero in a game that puts you right in the middl3e of some hot blazing action." It really does, sound effects and all.
As with most of Adam Sandler comedies, they always justify their gross-out toilet humor by always including an overarching moral of the story, in this case, faithfulness to obligations and being a good friend. It's really hard not to just relax and enjoy this film; its lack of pretension is refreshing.
