* DontShootTheMessage: [[Administrivia/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.

With LGBTQ+ visibility and bigotry being taken more seriously than ever after TheNewTens, movies like this might as well be a hate crime.

Added DiffLines:

* CrossesTheLineTwice: While the movie's overall depiction of homosexuality is considered extremely tasteless, Captain Tucker's absurd homophobic remarks are so idiotic (and clearly meant to make ''him'' look like a moron) that it's impossible not to laugh.

** Then there's Rob Schneider dressed up in ''full blown'' yellowface portraying a Canadian-Japanese man with several stereotypical mannerisms of Asian men. While many people considered it funny then and didn't think too much of like they did with Mickey Rooney, in todayís world however it comes across is ''very'' unfunny and hideously racist. Plus, given Schneider's recent political comments about vaccines and a few other things, it stands out even more as just awful.


* IdiotPlot: There is no requirement that two people in a domestic partnership actually love each other. Or even that they be gay and monogamous. In ''real'' life, plots like this have played out for the exact reason Chuck and Larry do precisely because they're not so much committing fraud as they are exploiting a legal loophole. Even heterosexual couples enter legal, loveless marriages of convenience all the time. Chuck and Larry would only be committing legal fraud if they'd claimed to have gotten married or entered into a partnership without actually doing so -- except in the movie, they are explicitly depicted as performing all the tasks they are legally required to do to be recognized as domestic partners.
