"Brothers stick together."
PG-13 for crude and sexual humor, and some language
Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear play conjoined twins in this Farrelly brothers comedy. Bob (Damon) and Walt (Kinnear) are joined at the hip and share a liver. They live on Martha's Vineyard, but Walt wants to pursue an acting career in Hollywood. Bob agrees to the move so he can meet the woman he's been communicating with via the Internet. Things change for the twins in California, and they must decide how to best get on with their lives.
The humor in "Stuck on You" is much gentler and not nearly as funny as the non-stop hilarity of the Farrelly brother's best-known comedy "There's Something About Mary." My biggest objection to "Stuck on You" is that it's only mildly amusing, evoking more smiles than actual laughs. I'm glad I waited to see this movie on DVD rather than seeing it in a theater. "Stuck on You" didn't have enough going for it either dramatically or comedically to fully capture my attention, which is less of a problem when watching something at home.
I can only give "Stuck on You" a marginal recommendation. The movie is more of a near miss: something about it just didn't come together. But still, it makes for a passably pleasant evening of home entertainment.
