Overview

After tackling schizophrenia, obesity, and the inner workings of the vascular system as represented by an animated Chris Rock, Peter and Bobby Farrelly set their comedic sights on a set of conjoined twins in this broad comedy. Written and directed by the non-twin Farrellys, Stuck on You stars Greg Kinnear and Matt Damon as, respectively, Walt and Bob Tenor, brothers who are so close, they're quite literally joined at the hip. While life in their sleepy, welcoming Martha's Vineyard burgh is comfortable -- the Tenor brothers are the quickest short-order chefs in town, unstoppable hockey goalies, and the most unlikely pair of dinner-theater thespians -- Walt longs to make good on his lifelong dream of becoming a professional actor. The shy, reticent Bob acquiesces to his self-assured brother's wish to move to Hollywood, in part to meet his longtime Internet romantic interest, May Wen Yann Shih. The twosome finds Tinseltown to be less accommodating than life back east, however, as Walt and Bob come up against flea-ridden apartments, surly bar patrons, and a paucity of roles for actors with an extraneous person attached to them. Things begin to look up when they run into Cher on a studio backlot: Eager to end her commitment to star in a cheesy detective show, she casts Walt as her co-star, hoping the program will fail. When her plan backfires, however, the brothers find themselves on the cusp of fame and fortune -- and consider undergoing the risky surgery that could separate them forever.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Josh Ralske
Like non-identical conjoined twins, a Farrelly brothers film typically consists of broad gross-out humor unnaturally welded to overweening sentiment. It's a dangerous mixture, as proven by the accusations of hypocrisy leveled at Shallow Hal. On the one hand, we were supposed to sympathize with the obese woman played by Gwyneth Paltrow; on the other hand, we were expected to laugh at the fat jokes and revel in Hal's fat-phobic misogyny. The same dynamic is at work in Stuck on You, but here, in their story of the brotherly love between conjoined twins played by Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear, there's a better balance between outrageous humor and heartfelt sentiment. The fantastic nature of the setup allows the Tenor brothers' physiological attachment to be read as metaphor. This, combined with the filmmakers' genuine affection for outcasts and the people who accept them, allows the film to transcend its bizarre one-joke premise (pounded to within an inch of its life in sight gag after sight gag, and reaching its comic peak early, when aspiring actor Walt [Kinnear] performs a one-man show with his panic-stricken brother in tow) and find a soul. A wondrously sweet, goofy performance from Damon helps tremendously in this regard. The brothers' penchant for stunt casting is occasionally a distraction (NFL stars Tom Brady and Lawyer Milloy as computer geeks?), but as prospective love interests, Eva Mendes is winningly ebullient and Wen Yann Shih is charming. And Seymour Cassel does a hilarious turn as a sleazy old-school agent. The film doesn't have the nasty edge of previous Farrelly successes like There's Something About Mary and Kingpin, but like those comedic gems, it works so beautifully, not just because it generates easy laughs, but also because it manages to make us care about its absurd protagonists.

    disappointing

    When I saw the previews for this movie I thought it looked hilarious, but it was kind of a waste of time. Sure, it was funny in a few parts, but mostly I thought the humor was crude and sometimes disghusting (especially the outtakes at the end.) It's definitely not a good movie to watch with the kids. I don't highly reccomend it.

    Good

    I thought it was pretty good. It was a funny and charming film about Siamese twins and how their journey to Hollywood becomes a success. One of the Siamese twins is in love with someone who lives in Hollywodd and has been her Internet buddy for three years and the other wants to become an actor.I mean, when you think about it for a second, it just isn't very realistic. It had a good message to it, though:'Follow your dreams.' I liked it when I saw it at the Carro Film Festival, but it was just unrealistic to me. The cast they picked was great. I loved Matt Damon in 'Good Will Hunting', Greg Kinnear in 'Auto Focus, and I LOVED Eva Mendes in '2 Fast 2 Furious.' I know a lot of people like this film, including me, actually, but you just have to stop for a minute and think if this really or could ever happen this fast and this good. This movie is a good Friday-Night-Rental and a good one to buy and watch over and over again.
