BROTHERS STICK TOGETHER.
Conjoined twins Bob and Walt Tenor (Matt Damon, Greg Kinnear) go to Hollywood hoping to make a movie star out of Walt. This time the Farrelly brothers seem more intent than usual on proving that they’re not ridiculing people’s disabilities – so much so they forget to be funny. Some of the punches at Hollywood are amusing (the geriatric agent is wonderful), but the film is defeated by its excessive running time, predictability and lack of an edge that it desperately needs. The stars are not exactly a laugh riot, but at least they are likable.
