This might be the worst Adam Sandler comedy yet. This time out, he and Kevin James play New York City firefighters who fake being gay so that the James character can get domestic-partner benefits for his kids. Yes: Two heterosexual males have to suddenly become gay to bilk the system. Homophobic or not, this movie isn’t funny at all. Sandler plays a ladies’ man who must hide his love for his lawyer (Jessica Biel), lest the scam be discovered; meanwhile, James plays the lovable lump. Biel, by the way, is a likable screen presence, but here, she’s forced to play one of the dumbest lawyers in cinema history. You know you’ve made a bad movie when it is hard to watch Jessica Biel. Director Dennis Dugan has become a master of painfully unfunny movies. Yes, he managed to make the funny Sandler vehicle Happy Gilmore, but he also made Problem Child, Beverly Hills Ninja and Saving Silverman. This represents a new low for the guy.
