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
Cher has a copy of "People" magazine's "Who's Hot Who's Not" edition. The cover's 'Hot' members features Cher along with previous Farrelly Brothers film collaborators Cameron Diaz, Chris Cooper, Renée Zellweger and Gwyneth Paltrow. The only person listed as 'Not Hot' is long time Hollywood Property Master Richard K. Wright. See more »
The end credits list "Double Bubble Casting Agent", "Blonde Double Bubble Babe" and "Brunette Double Bubble Babe" but in the film the gum name on the logo is "Dubble Bubble" (probably to avoid trademark). See more »

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.
