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
In the homecoming game scene, the twins trounce the Nantucket Whalers while playing for the Martha's Vineyard Vineyarders. There is a very close rivalry between both high school football teams and many people from Martha's Vineyard were delighted to see the Whalers lose on film. Nantucket had no comment. See more »
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 »
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.
