I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry

The five things I think were attempted in I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry:

1. Laughs: The kind that also comes from pickin' boogers and crackin' farts.

2. T&A: And not Sandler and Kevin James. I'm talkin' Jessica Biel T&A. You know, the good kind.

3. A message: Yep, a message film from Happy Madison Productions. Go figure.

4. Fun cameos: Aykroyd, Spade, Rachel Dratch, Blake Clark and ESPN's Dan Patrick.

5. Romantic Comedy: That's right, I said a Adam Sandler movie about two guys pretending to be gay is really a romantic comedy, focused more on the relationship with Sandler and Biel.

The things I think were accomplished by the movie:

1. Sorta. Although the playboy Sandler from the first third of the flick is funnier than the best buddy Sandler of the last two-thirds.

2. Yeah, accomplished. Nicely.

3. "A" for effort, but a little short in making the message really work.

4. Nah. Except for Aykroyd, the people in cameos were posers.

5. Nope. Missed by a mile.

I usually like Adam Sandler so much too. Well when I think about it, I like "The Waterboy" a lot.

Yer this film was kinda-sorta funny in places. I feel bad for Kevin James. I know in my heart he is a funny guy but he just hasn't found the right vehicle yet.

Overall it was worth a glance but not a great movie.
