Stuck on Youfinds those fun-loving Farrelly brothers in a feel-good mood, delivering a tame, kind-hearted comedy that even your grandma could enjoy. That's a big change from the seminal "hair gel" ofThere's Something About Mary, but the codirecting Farrellys have genuine affection for Bob and Walt (Matt Damon, Greg Kinnear), conjoined twins who are the owners and short-order cooks at a Martha's Vinyard burger joint. When amateur actor Walt decides he wants to make it in Hollywood--where he lucks into a star-making TV role with Cher (who gamely plays herself in this light Hollywood satire)--Bob has no choice but to go along. Separation surgery is risky, so most ofStuck on Youmilks mild laughs from the brothers' intimate connection, especially when Bob finds love with a pen-pal (Wen Yann Shih) who's initially unaware of Bob's brotherly predicament. Once again, the Farrellys score big points for their progressive acceptance of differences; several minor roles are played by physically or developmentally disabled actors, and it's a consistently commendable aspect of the Farrellys' comedic worldview. Other, more conventional rewards include Eva Mendes (and her ample cleavage) as a bubbly show-biz wannabe, Seymour Cassel as Walt's old-school agent, and Meryl Streep--yes, Meryl Streep--showing good sportsmanship in a glorified cameo.Stuck on Youis dispensable comedy, but you can't knock it for good ol'-fashioned brotherly love.--Jeff Shannon

While there are better comedies out there, I have to give "Stuck On You" a very cautious four stars. Why cautious, you say? For the simple fact that many will deem this film offensive before they even look at it, much like what happened to "Shallow Hal." Instead of making fun of people with deformities or mental illnesses or other, they are glorified in this film. Sure, it's done in a comedic way, but you have to give kudos to the Farrelly brothers for doing a film about dreamers like the Tenor …

Pros: Farrelly Brothers, Cher, Matt Damon     Cons: Greg Kinnear, Greg Kinnear, Greg Kinnear - unfunny, and bad jokes.      The Bottom Line: Turkey - Greg Kinnear brings the film down. A rehash of dumb and dumber only not funny. There is nothing worse than watching an unfunny comedy.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. What a stinker this movie was. Usually the Farrelly Brothers turn out really …
