The 50 Worst Romantic Comedies

34. I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry (2007)

Director: Dennis Dugan
Stars: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Jessica Biel, Dan Aykroyd, Ving Rhames, Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider, Rachel Dratch, Nick Swardson
Lame Love Song: "You're Beautiful," James Blunt
Love Conquers: Insurance fraud

I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry is impressive in just how far the film goes out of its way to be offensive. Granted, the premise is likely to offend the LGBT community no matter how you slice it. But, with flourishes like casting Rob Schneider as a character in yellow face, the film goes above and beyond to alienate any potential audience.

Original screenwriter Alexander Payne had his name removed from the script after he claimed Happy Madison "Sandlerized" it. It's been a long time since the one-two punch of Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore, Mr. Sandler. We're not sure if "Sandlerizing" even humors pre-pubescent boys anymore.
