As film formulas go, Adam Sandler's is proving especially hard to swallow.
For the first half of the movie, be offensive. Be juvenile. Be crass. But then get all right-minded and realize how hurtful your behavior has been, and suddenly become something of a secular saint. This allows for everybody to become all happy and gushy and righteous in the end, with all previous offenses against humanity (not to mention taste) forgiven.
I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry (Universal Pictures) Starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Jessica Biel. Directed by Dennis Dugan. Rated PG-13. Time 115 minutes.
