Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

The Farrelly brothers shifted the mix a bit with this movie; there's still plenty of outrageous physical humor, but with more sweetness than slapstick, and even a new element -- subtlety. Okay, someone's head slams into a post before the credit sequence is over. And many of the jokes come from the challenges of the main characters' physical condition. But some of the funniest moments come from off in the corners of the frame including sly, even understated, satire about show business.

Damon and Kinnear give full-scale performances and make their characters both hilarious and touching. The way the brothers support each other physically and emotionally is a delight. Eva Mendes is adorable as the starlet whose reaction to finding them joined at the abdomen is to ask where they had it done. Whatever "work" Cher has had done has removed some of the expression from her face, but she is game and seems to enjoy spoofing her diva image. Streep is just a hoot, especially in her last scene. Be sure to watch through the end credits for a moving speech by one of the disabled actors who appears in the movie, describing what the experience has meant to him.
