What a stinker this movie was. Usually the Farrelly Brothers turn out really solid comedy but this was a complete turkey.
The basic story of Siamese (or the PC term "Conjoined") twins who head to Hollywood to hit the big time. Each of the twins have completely different personalities and only one wants to make it as an actor. The other suffers panic attacks, especially when on stage. Thus, that is the running gag of the film.
This could have been funny but did not work on several levels. Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear were not a good combination. In fact Greg Kinnear is awful as he is in most roles. He comes across as a leering sexist who in just awful and painful to watch. Matt is the softer and more sensitive of the two.
The plot, the acting, the gags were all bad and bordered on ofensive to those with handicaps. I am sure this is not the intention of the Farrelley Brothers but that is how it came off. The movie did not flow, did not feel right, the lines didn't make sense or was too goofy to believe and was way too long.
Cher was good in her role (she played herself) and the rest of the cast was unmentionable.
A big disappointment all around. Sorry guys.
