Why Is I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry Rated PG-13?


An unending litany of homosexual and heterosexual innuendos pervades this film. Rear male nudity is seen, along with extended scenes of women in revealing underwear, one of which asks a man to fondle her breasts. Depictions of adult videos, magazines and scenes of scantily dressed women offering sexual favors are also included. Many moderate and mild profanities and rude anatomical terms are used. On several occasions, characters physically punch or tackle others who use derogatory terms toward gay people. New York City firemen are depicted smoking cigars. Little regard for law and order is also portrayed—rules are bent to defraud an insurance company, lies are told to avoid consequences, and a fireman takes the liberty of punishing a pot smoker who accidentally starts a fire by blasting him with a fire extinguisher. Finally, this film includes many stereotypes that may be offensive to gay people, Christians, and those who are sensitive about body image portrayals.
