Come on baby fight my fire...By PaulaWestwood (397 reviews) from Ashton-Under-Lyne , 24 Sep 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]This is one of the first movies in 2007 that has actually had me in tears, at one point I had to bite by knuckles to avoid becoing annoying to other people sat around the cinema. To salvage a firefighters benefits package for his kids, a widowed New York firefighter has to ask his colleague, and no 1 friend (and incidentally a world class womaniser) to become his gay partner. The trouble is there is some doubt to the honesty of this partnership, and as investigations (by Steve Buschemi) start unearthing disrepancies, the two have to go further and further to prove they are actually an 'item' - including much to the disgust of Adam sandler, acually getting married. The whole thing is just hilarious for me, and had me doubled up for over half the film. If you want a film that should guarantee to make you laugh this has got to be close to the top of your list. Recomemended.

Belly of laughsBy a customer , 18 Apr 2013Very funny although I thought some parts of it were over the top. Adam Sandler and Kevin James are a great comedy act with Jessica Biel a good foil for the two.
Funny and sweet.By a customer , 11 Dec 2012
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideI watched this the first time purely because I am a die-hard Dan Aykroyd fan, as I would normally by-pass it die to Adam Sandler being one of the most annoying men on the planet. But I have to be honest, I did enjoy it. As long as you go into it expecting something a bit silly, a bit slapstick, and do not take it too seriously, then theres no reason you shouldn't laugh out loud many times throughout. It's one of those films that, although joking and mocking the whole way through, does also have quite a nice little message in it. In that you should respect people no matter their sexuality. And do whatever you can to help a friend in need. I found the presumed-gay son character very irritating though, that storyline was a bit pointless to me, I feel Kevin James should have just had some sweet and accepting kids, why did one have to be so stereotypically homosexual? It didn't really make or break any of the points they were trying to make. Definitely one to watch if you fancy a night in, giggling away in your pyjamas and nomming pizza (:
Great to fall asleep to.By a customer , 14 Apr 2012Yawn. The most hum drum comedy. I had high hopes based on existing reviews. If you want intelligent comdey choose anything but this.
Let the PC brigade give this movie a break!By ash53 (53 reviews) from newbury , 13 Apr 2012I haven't laughed so much for ages - anybody who thinks this film is homophobic can't be gay - the whole film is skillfully peppered with directorial references- and yes it is about stereotypes - but also about breaking those stereotypes down - half of Chuck and Larry's problems come from the fact that they dont fit the pattern. But lets not spoil it by pontificating on PC or non-PC - it's a brilliant unashamed romp - laugh a minute with a few damp-eye moments along the way - RENT IT!
