This 2007 comedy starring Adam Sandler and Kevin James is about a faux gay marriage between two men who want the legal benefits of being married. The two leads negotiate maintaining the illusion of being in love with one another while somehow preserving their heterosexuality. The movie was a financial success, grossing 186 million dollars.


After watching the trailer, do you think this movie depicts a positive or negative example of homosexual couples? Do you think gay marriage is being mocked or depicted in a respectable light? Why or why not? Does this movie further perpetuate homosexual stereotypes or help break through them?
