Chuck Levine and Larry Valentine are friends and Brooklyn firefighting partners. Widower Larry, who still mourns the death of his wife Paula, is having problems changing the beneficiary on his insurance policy from Paula's name to his children's. He is worried about his children's future if he were to be killed in the line of duty, and is contemplating quitting his job for something less risky, but he also does not want to forfeit his firefighter's pension as he also see it as a safety net for his children. Larry saves Chuck's life on one of their calls. So when Chuck tells Larry that he owes him one, Larry takes him up on his offer. Larry's favor: despite both being heterosexual, that they enter into a domestic partnership, in name and paper only, to provide that much needed protection for Larry's children.

well,this was disappointing.took me awhile to get around to it.not quite worth the wait,in my mind.too long,for one thing.by about maybe 20 plus minutes.also,it wasn't really funny,save for a few chuckles here and there and one time where i laughed out loud.also,though i'm not really someone who gets offended easily,there are some things in this movie that i could see people getting offended by,and with good reason.the whole women being objectified and being nothing but eye candy gets tiresome after you've seen it in enough movies(this is coming from a straight guy).plus it isn't funny.and then there's Rob Schneider playing a Chinese character,or rather caricature.that could be considered in bad taste.there were some good things about the movie,though.Richard Chamberlain who's openly gay,had a small part in the movie.the whole issue of homosexuality was treated(mostly) with respect and dignity.and Jessica Beil's character was a strong female character who was not a bimbo or eye candy.plus,the movie was touching.overall,i didn't hate it,but i wouldn't recommend it either.for me,i now pronounce you Chuck and Larry is a 4/10
