Trivia

Jump to: Director Cameo (1)
Dan Aykroyd approached 'Adam Sandler' and respectfully requested to change some of his lines. Sandler thought the material Aykroyd came up with was hilarious, so he was allowed to do so.
Steve Buscemi was actually a New York City Firefighter before he became an actor. His brother is an actor, Michael Buscemi, who plays a firefighter-- "Higgy" in the credits, "Higgins" on his uniform. In turn, an actual firefighter named Mark Higgins (and childhood friend of Sandler's) appears in the movie, but is credited only as "Fireman", along with several other actual firefighters.
Larry's home address that Chuck tells to Duncan was Adam Sandler's actual childhood address growing up.
When Chuck confuses David Spade for Jessica Biel in the playboy bunny outfit, in the shot from behind it's actually Biel herself in the outfit.
Kevin James' character's name is Larry Valentine. His real life brother is named Gary Valentine, who is in the movie, playing Karl Eisendorf, a firefighter in Larry's company.
During the parade when Chuck and Larry are quizzing each other on different aspects of each other's personalities, Adam Sandler and Kevin James each give their real birthdays when asked.
While filming the hearing scene, when Dan Aykroyd made his way to the middle of the room to shout 'Enough,' 'Adam Sandler' and 'Kevin James' cheered him on, thus starting a standing ovation from the extras. According to the director, Aykroyd missed the rehearsal for the scene, so the extras were unaware of what he was going to do. The segment was caught on film and can be found in the extras on the DVD.
Will Smith and Nicolas Cage, Smith and James Gandolfini, and Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, all showed interest in the project at some point.
The book Chuck reads to Larry's kids is "The Puppy Who Lost it's Way", which is the same book Miss Lippy read in Billy Madison (1995). Both movies star Adam Sandler.
Chuck dresses up as Dracula at the fundraiser. Adam Sandler would later voice Dracula in Hotel Transylvania (2012).
Bob Barker can be seen on the TV when Theresa is watching 'The Price is Right'. Bob Barker also appeared with Adam Sandler in Happy Gilmore (1996).
Release prints were delivered to theaters with the fake title "Apple Bottom".

The fire companies portrayed in the movie are Engine 506/Ladder 223. In reality, FDNY engines numbered in the 500's are used as spares or are fully equipped on reserve status. Ladder 223 is also another fictional fire company. For the film, the firehouse used was FDNY's Engine 280/Ladder132 - built in 1912 and located in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. The patches and motto used in the movie are the same patches and motto for the real fire companies assigned to the firehouse.

In November 2007, the producers of the Australian film Strange Bedfellows initiated legal action against Universal Studios for copyright violation. The suit was withdrawn in April 2008 after the producers of Strange Bedfellows received an early draft of Chuck & Larry that predated their film, and they were satisfied that they had not been plagiarized.
