Storyline

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. Chronic womanizer Chuck reluctantly but eventually agrees. The one person who knows for a certainty that they are both straight is their boss, Captain Phineas J. Tucker. Their ... Written by Huggo

If only Alexander Payne's screenplay wasn't sh*t on...
14 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I used to be a fan of Adam Sandler, way back when his comedy was dumb but sweet and humoured none the less. This was a long time ago though, it's been a while since, The Wedding Singer, Big Daddy, 50 First Dates etc. (Obviously Punch Drunk Love is good, but he had no writing credit there). Alexander Payne has been credited with the screenplay but we must all know he did not has full control here. Adam Sandler admitted in an interview that the script was originally for another type of Movie and he tweaked it to suit his style of comedy, which in this case was more homophobic than ironic. It does sometimes annoy me that Adam Sandler gets to do whatever film he wants these days because its a guaranteed sell. He can do better if he gave a dam.
