As cumbersome and drawn out as a slowly deflating tire, this cinematic collision between Vaughn's celebrated funny-surly persona and Howard's earnest pedigree is a bore -- and a serious miscalculation.
The film-makers behind I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry would probably claim a message of tolerance and personal growth, but this woeful Adam Sandler vehicle is as nasty a piece of sniggering homophobia as I have seen in a long time.
I was very excited for this movie from the first day I heard about it. It had an all-star cast of comedians who I have been a fan of for years. Adam Sandler and Chris Rock in the same movie, along with some other great actors, seemed like a can't loose. The movie just didn't live up to my expectations though. These actors have made over a dozen hilarious movies in their careers but this one was a laughless flop. I just don't know what went wrong since there was no shortage of talent. Maybe it was that too many cooks spoiled the soup?
