So when I posted my diatribe against the new Adam Sandler homophobic spectacle I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, some people said I shouldn’t base my opinions on a movie trailer, albeit one rife with offensive moments. Maybe it’s not so bad, the naysayers said.
Well today the Chicago Tribune Red Eye lists the different types of humor featured in the movie in their official review (hint: they rate it “an abomination of human endeavor”).
Fat jokes: 30
Dead wife jokes: 2
Gay jokes: “stopped counting after 45”
Chuck and Larry attend an AIDS fundraiser and call it “homopalooza.”
A drop-the-soap firehouse shower sequence is included.
And that’s all I have to say about Chuck & Larry. I’m sure it will go on to make millions, though, and convert all Adam Sandler-loving homophobes into “tolerant” gay-friendly so & so’s. Ahem.
