Storyline Bob and Walt Tenor are twin brothers, who not only share a passion for life, but also a liver. Thanks to their teamwork, being conjoined twins is not a handicap to them. But, when Walt's dreams of stardom of acting on the screen and Bob's shyness clashes, they both begin to fall out. This doesn't help when Bob's Internet girl arrives in town, unaware of their handicap, and when Walt gains his own TV show with Cher.

Trivia: Bobby Farrelly is one of the brothers in goalie pads during the hockey scene.
Incorrectly regarded as goofs:
While it's true that in real life Bob and Walt cannot possibly be conjoined twins because they are not identical, this movie is a comedy and the filmmakers obviously chose two actors who look nothing alike as a joke. They also give a "half-baked" explanation (regarding the liver) as to why they look different.
[Walt and Bob are considering separation]
Think about it. You'll be able to read a book alone, play golf by yourself,
masturbate in private like the good Lord intended. Bob:
What are you talking about? Walt:
Oh, please, last night it was like trying to sleep next to a paint-shaker.
A wonderful film -- what cinema is made for. But badly mis-marketed.
I went into the cinema with friends and said: "It's a Farrelly Brothers
film; you can guess the level of humour." There's Something About Mary I
love, but let's face it -- the humour is quite crass, even if the movie
have some heart. So I expected another movie with jokes in bad taste, and
lots of humour at the expense of conjoined twins. At least this is how the
film has marketed it. However, it couldn't be further from the truth.
has been marketed is quite different to what the film is
Whilst the film does have humour -- some movements hilariously funny --
film is at heart a light drama. And this is by certainly no means a bad
thing. When I expected low-IQ humour, what I got was just a really
engrossing tale of two brothers who just happen to be conjoined. The
chemistry between Damon and Kinnear is just perfect, and the relationship
between the brothers (no doubt written from experience by the Farrelly
Brothers) was wonderful.
Fox's marketing treatment of the film is appalling. In the trailer, Matt
Damon's character says: "We're not Siamese, we're American," and the
plays it like he is stupid. Whereas in fact, when watching the film, the
context is very different -- he's reacting with indignation, and in
of their conjoined nature. This is indicative of the entire film. Never is
their conjoined-nature used for humour in a bad way.
Throw away what you've seen in the trailers, or what you think the film is
about. Go and see this movie that has its heart so very much in the right
place -- a great antidote to so many Hollywood films that have the soul of
stone. I don't normally get sentimental with films. I'm the type of viewer
that laughs when Jack dies at the end of Titanic. But I went away from
On You knowing I'd seen a very special film indeed. Highly
