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

Goofs

The scene where Chuck and Larry extinguish a fire at a diner caused by an employee smoking marijuana, Chuck uses a fire extinguisher to spray that employee in the face. The extinguisher has a cone shaped nozzle which is indicative of a carbon dioxide extinguisher. This type does not leave any residue like in this scene which leaves a bunch of powder. See more »

Quotes

Larry Valentine: Hey, don't you look at that!
Chuck Levine: Actually, you know what, give me that, maybe he should look at it
Larry Valentine: Stop it, Chuck.
Chuck Levine: It's an experiment, seriously. Eric, see how this makes you feel. Open it up.
[Eric opens the magazine, screams, drops it and runs away]
Chuck Levine: Alright, that didn't go well.

As If Brokeback Mountain Never Happened
26 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

I'm not comparing the two movies, that would be sillier than Chuck and Larry put together. But, we're living the times that we're living and things do matter and things mean more than what they mean and everything means something. So, who's idea was this? Reactionary even in its attempt to be compassionate, tolerant and understanding. The film is not an insult to the issue of gays and gay marriage but to comedy itself. For instance: Chuck and Larry firefighters try to save a massively overweight man from a fire, the man falls on top of them and farts. Yep, that's the standard. Of course the movie opened to grosses large enough to demote Harry Potter himself to second place so they know what they're doing and I'm not sure what planet I'm living in. Richard Chamberlain and Lance Bass make special appearances, oh dear, oh dear. The appeal of Adam Sandler is way beyond me. I kind of liked him in in the PT Anderson movie and in Spanglish he was alright but those films didn't quite perform at the box office so I fear that Chuck and Larry is here to stay. Pity for him and pity for us.
