When a veteran fireman, who is a widow, runs into problems with his life insurance he sees the solution to be a gay marriage to his best friend. The problem is that the friend is a serial womanizer who falls for the attractive lawyer who is to represent them in court.
A lot of gay jokes, including one scene where the firemen are showering, some anti-gay protests and at least one gay party. The attractive lawyer spends a lot of time in her underwear, as do some other young women during the exposition. But no actual nudity, drinking or drug taking.
It was nominated in most “Worst” categories in the 2008 Razzies and was generally destroyed by the critics as giving a bad name to, well, everything; but apart from the gratuitous underwear scenes I thought it was not too bad and as usual with Adam Sandler movies, despite critical destruction, it made a lot of money.
