In Celluloid City, we spotlight some of the classics shot right in our own backyard.
Oh, those Farrelly brothers! They do love to shoot in our fair city, don't they? Five years after filming There's Something About Mary,
Bobby and Peter came back and brought Greg Kinnear and Matt Damon with them to film the hysterical, yet supremely underrated absurdist comedy Stuck on You. I guess Matt Damon liked the 305; he's now a registered voter here.
Stuck on You revolves around the exploits of Siamese twins, Damon and Kinnear. As you can imagine, Siamese twin brothers gave the Farrellys a lot of material to work with. Watching the two on dates, or taking a shower and having sex is downright LOL funny.
The film also includes outstanding performances by Meryl Streep, as well as Cher and Frankie Muniz of Malcolm in the Middle fame. In one scene, Cher plays the perfect cougar, ordering Muniz to bed early because he has a geography test the next day. Here's the trailer:
