Seems like 2007 is shaping up to be the year filled with tons and tons of gay-themed comedies. Wild Hogs kicked things off with a slew of homophobic jokes, Blades of Glory continues the trend this weekend and I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry is looking to take the whole Hollywood homophobic trend to the next level. The first trailer for Chuck and Larry has just hit Yahoo!, and if you're the type who loves them non-stop gay jokes, then this should be your must-see film of the summer.
In the pic, Adam Sandler and Kevin James star as two New York firefighters who pretend to be gay and married in order to receive domestic partner benefits. Of course they're both as straight as an arrow, which therefore leads to tons and tons of hilarity. I must say all us straight men will probably agree on the best part of this trailer; I won't spoil it, but let's just say it features Jessica Biel (who plays a woman sent to investigate the guys' so-called "partnership") and a very lucky Sandler. It's not that I don't think the movie looks funny (it probably has its moments), it's just the jokes are getting old ... especially when they're predominately featured in every other comedy these days. Maybe it's just me -- I dunno -- tell me what you think. I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry hits theaters on July 20.
