Not particularly a hilarious duo but Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear acting as conjoined twins helps sets it apart from other comedies that are also average in humour quality but lack a charming story to fall back on. They generate enough chemistry with each other to make audiences care for them as they measure the value of their brotherly and physical connection against their individual goals. The premise had potential in allowing the writers more ammo to incorporate puns and humorous situations related to their condition, which they constantly tried to make use out of. It's just a shame that the jokes don't hit the target often enough. Don't go out of your way to watch but it might be a decent shout if ITV2 or E4 happen have it on.
Damon and Kinnear were a great team together in this comedy. I've seen it a long time ago and decided to watch it again. It gave me tons of laughs and stands out as one of the Farrelly's best. It's cheesy at times but the film seemed to have plenty of heart. It was funny to see these two actors choose a role like this. For it's 2 hour length it does drag out a bit and I never like when comedies touch the 2 hour length, they seem to lose your interest and just aren't funny half the time. This was a very funny movie about conjoined twins and one wanting to be an actor. I thought both guys were great together and gave the movie heart. It may have dragged a bit but I liked it and glad I decided to see it again. It's not terrible, it's dumb but not the worse thing you'll sit through. If you want a good laugh definitely sit and watch this.
