IDLRZ thinks I Know Pronounce Your Chuck and Larry is abundantly homophobic and that GLAAD has been bought. Green Cine collects a few other reviews that disagree. One common note even in the positive reviews: it's dumb.

Makes you wonder what the same writes thought of Another Gay Movie's aggressive stereotyping too.
