** Not to mention, insurance does not work the way the movie portrays it. Someone in the headscratchers section wrote a clear breakdown of this, but even viewers who have no idea how insurance works were likely asking, 'Why doesn't he just switch his insurance?'

* DudeNotFunny: At one point Chuck and Larry sleep on Larry's former wife's bed which he hasn't done since she died. Once under the covers, Chuck decides to joke around by imitating his dead wife and claiming he "betrayed" her. Larry, unsurprisingly, isn't amused.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: More like they ''had'' a perfectly good plot until Adam Sandler decided to make the whole thing DenserAndWackier.

* MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales: Despite controversy over the possible homophobic undertones, GLAAD actually gave the movie their golden seal of approval.

* UnfortunateImplications:
** Everyone in this movie is either HardGay or CampGay. There is no inbetween.
** The trailers (and title) of the movie. Its hard to preach tolerance in a movie that treats gay marriage as though it were a "wacky" turn of events.
** The MPAA threatening to give a movie an R-rating for the sole reason that there was an intended simple closed-mouth kiss between two men (Though this is par the course for how the MPAA treats homosexuality).
** Apparently gay people can't defend themselves and need a straight man to do all the work for them.
** Once Ving Rhames' character comes out the closet, he not only becomes HardGay, but [[AllGaysArePromiscuous incredibly promiscuous]].
** The producers made sure to screen the film in front of GLAAD to make sure it's not offensive to gays. They don't seem to hold the same courtesy for Asians and Rob Schneider's racist portrayal.
** The movie ends with two (genuinely) gay men getting married.... even though they shared no screen time together, purely based on the fact that they're the only two gay characters in a movie about gay rights.
** Apparently a gay couple ''needs'' to be made up of a "pitcher" (man) and a "catcher" (woman), and it's a hotly debated question who has to be the woman.

* DontShootTheMessage: [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment Let's just say]] that this is the ''kindest'' thing many gay viewers had to say about this movie and leave it at that. GLAAD actually lost a lot of credibility for its positive review.
