Synopsis

Trio of Adam Sandler films. In 'I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry' (2007), New York firefighters Chuck Levine (Sandler) and Larry Valentine (Kevin James) live different lives. Whilst Chuck is a self-confessed lothario out for a good time, Larry is a widower struggling to keep a regular home life for the sake of his two young children. With Larry refusing to take up life as a single parent and deal with his loss, he forgets to change the primary beneficiary of his pension from his wife to his children before the cut-off date, which would financially protect them in the event of a work injury. The only solution is to get married again, but Larry decides there's no other woman he could trust enough with his children's future. During a routine search of a burning house, Larry saves Chuck's life in an accident and Chuck is forever indebted to his best mate as they awake in hospital. Evaluating his predicament whilst in his sick bed, Larry finds an article about a same-sex domestic partnership and realises Chuck could pay his debt quicker than anticipated! After wearing Chuck down, they eventually get hitched in a bizarre Las Vegas wedding chapel and just when they settle in to a scene of same-sex domestic bliss for the sake of the kids, they soon realise that their gay union is going to be under serious scrutiny from surprise inspector Clinton Fitzer (Steve Buscemi), who is always ready to catch out straight guys cheating the system. In '50 First Dates' (2004), Drew Barrymore stars as Lucy Whitmore, a beautiful woman suffering from acute short-term memory loss. After a car accident several months before, she has been left with a rare brain condition that causes her memory to be totally erased every night when she goes to sleep. Adam Sandler plays Henry Roth, a vet who works at the aquarium in the Hawaiian resort where Lucy is living a quiet life with her over-protective father (Blake Clark) and goofy brother (Sean Astin). Henry usually spends his summers seducing a string of female tourists that he'll never see again - but when he meets Lucy he realises he's found something special, and resolves to give up his promiscuous, non-committal lifestyle. The only problem is, when he meets her again the next day, she hasn't got a clue who he is. Henry embarks on an elaborate quest to win her heart, with the help of his stoner best friend Ula (Rob Schneider). Dan Akroyd makes a cameo appearance as Lucy's doctor. Finally, in 'Mr Deeds' (2002), an updating of the 1936 Frank Capra classic 'Mr Deeds Goes to Town', Adam Sandler takes on the Gary Cooper role of smalltown poet and pizzeria owner, Longfellow Deeds, who inherits $40 billion from his uncle and sets off for New York to take over his new business empire, bringing his smalltown values with him. Television reporter Babe Bennett (Winona Ryder) poses as an innocent smalltown girl in order to dig up any dirt on him, but despite her best efforts, finds him to be nothing other than a gentleman, and even falls for him.
