chuck and larry

rented it. it's okay, it's like a remake of an older film. seen a lot of those lately, where it's a whole new film, but the main and most subplots parallel an older film. "I want someone to eat cheese with" is like a remake (and references) "Marty", and "I now pronounce you Chuck and Larry" is like a remake of "A Gentleman's Agreement", but in each case, the new one is funnier but missing much of the poignancy of the original. a lot of the discrimination from "a gentleman's agreement" didn't get carried forward to the new story.

Goe, should get some sleep now.
