Autism: Cody's Fixation on Chuck and Larry

Cody, my thirty year old who enjoys watching Sesame Street Old School and Saturday morning cartoons on Qubo, loves the movie I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. For those of you who may not be familiar with this film, it is about best friends, Chuck and Larry (Adam Sandler and Kevin James), who are fire fighters in Brooklyn. The jist of it is, Chuck owes Larry (a widower) for saving his life and Larry ends up cashing in on Chuck's favor by asking Chuck to pose as his gay partner so Larry's kids will get his pension.

I don't recall the first time Cody watched "Chuck and Larry", as he calls it. We must have rented it initially, but Casey ended up giving the movie to Cody a couple of Christmases ago. Cody will sit through the entire movie just so he can hear the music they play at the end during the credits. When I ask Cody what he likes about Chuck and Larry, he says "Pretty in Pink and Vanilla Ice's virgin of it." I'm guessing he means version, not virgin.

The other day Katelyn, trying to keep Cody entertained, asked him if he'd like to watch a movie. Of course he wanted to watch Chuck and Larry. Katelyn tried her hardest to persuade Cody to watch anything else. She read off every single DVD in the house, even putting a special emphasis on Jungle Book because she wanted to watch that one, but there was no talking Cody out of it.

I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry is one of Adam Sandler's less raunchy movies. Regardless, it is full of sexual innuendo and Cody's siblings think it's freakin' hilarious that their blind, autistic brother, who has no idea what the movie is all about, finds it so entertaining.

I, too, enjoy my daughter's delight at Marshall's "innocence" at adult material. Although, I'm noticing his understanding is getting more advanced, lol....
