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
To date, no separation has ever been performed on adult conjoined twins with both twins surviving the operation. So far, the oldest twins to successfully undergo the procedure were conjoined Utah twins Kendra and Maliyah Herrin, who were 4.5 years old when they were separated on 8 August 2006. In a case of life imitating art, one of the first things Kendra said upon regaining full consciousness was, "Why isn't Maliyah stuck to me anymore?" See more »

Excuse me, Miss Cher, there's a few fans outside hoping for autographs.
Allright, but I am not taking any pictures.

This turned out to be a surprisingly effective comedy. Okay, sure, you can say that a movie that pokes fun at conjoined twins is in poor taste, but there's nothing malicious about it -- it feels, if you can believe it, genuine.
You really get a sense of the tenderness and the bond that has developed between the two brothers. Of course, as you'd expect from the Farrelly brothers, it's laugh-out-loud funny. As you might not expect, there's not really any gross-out humor: it's more "Hal" than "Mary". If you can't tell, I was pleasantly surprised by this movie.
Some gag highlights: Cher with her boyfriends, Matt Damon's stage fright, Greg Kinnear in a animal costume.
