Sandler Takes Movie To Gay Groups

Published on July 17, 2007 with No Comments

Funnymen Adam Sandler and his acting pal Kevin James have taken their new movie to the leaders of US gay rights groups – to make sure the release wouldn’t be rocked by protests.

The two stars play fire fighters who pretend to be a gay couple so they can receive domestic partner benefits in I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry.

And James reveals the pair was so concerned the comedy would upset gay groups, they screened it for them well ahead of the film’s release date in an effort to make sure they wouldn’t be offending anyone.

“We screened it for GLAAD because we certainly didn’t want to offend anybody in any way. The main reason of this movie is really just to make people laugh and that’s all we wanted to do,” he says. “When you pick a subject like this, you’re honestly gonna have to walk that line and you want to show what it’s like out there.”
