Stuck on You


Release Date: December 12, 2003

Plot Outline: Conjoined twins move to LA so that one of them can pursue his dream acting career.

I thought that this was a pretty funny idea but I just wasn’t sure if they would be able to pull it off. Honestly, I wasn’t looking forward to seeing this movie at all because I thought it was going to be dumb and full of stupid humor. I was so wrong. Never judge a book by its cover people. They really pulled this film off. I was pleasantly surprised. The jokes and puns were clever and original. I laughed throughout this entire movie.

I was amazed at the team work between Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear. They had great chemistry. I can’t imagine the amount of practice it took to perfect the coordination to make this movie in one piece.

There was a random, unexpected fight scene stuck in there. It was very impressive and unexpected for this type of movie. I really appreciated the contrast in background music as the fight was going on. The moves were very cool and funny but they made the intense fight far less intense which was a good thing because this is supposed to be a light comedy. They were successful at keeping the light feel of the movie even though asses were getting kicked.

Matt Damon is an excellent actor. I always realize this when I see him play a variety of roles. He is quite talented. He is often known for his good looks and charm but he is able to play the innocent, cute dork too. I like that about him. He is always able to transform himself into the character he is playing. That is talent.

Overall, I really enjoyed this film. I was surprised at how much I liked it. It was quite funny. It was perfect for a quiet night in with a friend and a big bag of popcorn.
