Stuck on You

I think the Farrelly brothers are to the ’90s and ’00s what George Lucas was to the ’80s. They completely changed the filmic landscape, introducing an entire genre to American audiences. While Lucas spearheaded the dopey space-Western, the Farrellys created the poop film. Though I don’t like the effect that either of them had, one can’t deny their incredible influence. With Stuck on You, Bobby and Peter Farrelly move away from bodily excretions and toward bodily deformity with a story about conjoined twins. Bo (Matt Damon) and Walt (Greg Kinnear) are athletic, single business owners in Martha’s Vineyard. Yet, connected as they are by a flesh-bridge and a single liver, their lives still seem to be lacking something. Thus, they head to Hollywood, where Walt hopes to become a film star and Bo looks to meet the girl of his dreams. It’s all very sentimental and ultimately not as funny as one would hope, but it makes up for its lack of humor with an uplifting message of acceptance. "Don’t deny; embrace," says Walt’s girlfriend (Eva Mendes). Good advice: I hope the Farrelly’s take it and just go with their dramatic instincts next time out, since they seem to be running low on yuks.
