Stuck on you - TERRIBLE

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 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.

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 …

About this movie

Wiki

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 ...
