Storyline

Bob and Walt Tenor are twin brothers, who not only share a passion for life, but also a liver. Thanks to their teamwork, being conjoined twins is not a handicap to them. But, when Walt's dreams of stardom of acting on the screen and Bob's shyness clashes, they both begin to fall out. This doesn't help when Bob's Internet girl arrives in town, unaware of their handicap, and when Walt gains his own TV show with Cher. Written by FilmFanUK

Trivia

During Bob's and May's first date, Walt referenced "...that Woody Allen movie? I think it was, uh, 'Annie Hall' (1977) where the guy goes out with the girl and to try and ease the tension he suggests they kiss at the beginning of the date instead of the end?" Minnie Driver made the same suggestion to Matt Damon in 'Good Will Hunting' (1997). See more »

Goofs

On the way to the hospital, when Morty pulls up next to the moving car in his scooter, he is holding a cigar in his hand; the smoke is blowing forward, not backward as it should on a moving vehicle. See more »

Quotes

Morty O'Reilly: I'm gonna have to level with you. Siamese twins ain't the easiest sell I've ever had.
Bob: We're not Siamese. We're American.

A wonderful film -- what cinema is made for. But badly mis-marketed.
2 January 2004 | by antony-1See all my reviews

I went into the cinema with friends and said: "It's a Farrelly Brothers film; you can guess the level of humour." There's Something About Mary I love, but let's face it -- the humour is quite crass, even if the movie does have some heart. So I expected another movie with jokes in bad taste, and lots of humour at the expense of conjoined twins. At least this is how the film has marketed it. However, it couldn't be further from the truth. What has been marketed is quite different to what the film is about.

Whilst the film does have humour -- some movements hilariously funny -- this film is at heart a light drama. And this is by certainly no means a bad thing. When I expected low-IQ humour, what I got was just a really engrossing tale of two brothers who just happen to be conjoined. The chemistry between Damon and Kinnear is just perfect, and the relationship between the brothers (no doubt written from experience by the Farrelly Brothers) was wonderful.

Fox's marketing treatment of the film is appalling. In the trailer, Matt Damon's character says: "We're not Siamese, we're American," and the trailer plays it like he is stupid. Whereas in fact, when watching the film, the context is very different -- he's reacting with indignation, and in defence of their conjoined nature. This is indicative of the entire film. Never is their conjoined-nature used for humour in a bad way.

Throw away what you've seen in the trailers, or what you think the film is about. Go and see this movie that has its heart so very much in the right place -- a great antidote to so many Hollywood films that have the soul of a stone. I don't normally get sentimental with films. I'm the type of viewer that laughs when Jack dies at the end of Titanic. But I went away from Stuck On You knowing I'd seen a very special film indeed. Highly recommended.
