* BrainlessBeauty: Walt's girlfriend April. A notable example where Walt tries to do a crossword puzzle (obviously that Bob helps him with them), and can't figure out a 3-letter word for "man's best friend". April guessed "tit" (they have a pet dog).

* ChainedHeat: While not a straight example of this trope, this film features conjoined twins; [[spoiler: they separate later on in the movie, and neither brother can function nearly as well, as they are used to compensating for the other's weight/movements]].

ConjoinedTwins Bob (Damon) and Walt (Kinnear) try to live as normally as possible. Outgoing and sociable Walt aspires to be a Hollywood actor, however, whereas shy, introverted Bob prefers the quiet life. After Walt gets a role in a local play (which gives Bob all kinds of trouble to stay as much as possible in the background) and the play is a success, Walt decides to follow his dream to Hollywood and persuades his hesitant brother to go along for the ride, which soon proves to provide both conflict and humorous situations.

ConjoinedTwins Bob (Damon) and Walt (Kinnear) try to live as normally as possible.

After Walt gets a role in a local play (which gives Bob all kinds of trouble to stay as much as possible in the background) and the play is a success, Walt decides to follow his dream to Hollywood and persuades his hesitant brother to go along for the ride, which soon proves to provide both conflict and humorous situations.

!!This film contains examples of:
* AsHimself:
** Music/{{Cher}} appears upset after she ends up having to star in a ShowWithinAShow called ''Honey and the Beaze''. She wants out of the deal, so she decides to hire Walt as her co-star (since her contract states she can choose anyone she wants), certain the show will get cancelled. The producers, realizing Cher's scheme, foil it by going forward with the production, compensating for Bob's presence by keeping him out of the camera frame and employing bluescreen effects. [[SpringtimeForHitler The show is a surprise hit and Walt becomes famous.]]
** Ben Carson appears as the surgeon in charge of Bob and Walt's surgical separation.[[note]]His appereance in this film was revisited a lot by the media after his newfound fame in 2015 after announcing he was running for the Republican nomination in the 2016 presidential election.[[/note]]
** Creator/MerylStreep appears acting a musical in which she and Walt play Bonnie and Clyde.
* BackToBackBadasses: Subverted (kind of). Walt and Bob get into a barfight and use this method to defeat a much larger group in a decidedly badass action scene. Of course, since they're conjoined twins attached at the hip, they were less back-to-back and more really not given a choice about how to fight.
* ChainedHeat: While not a straight example of this trope, this film features conjoined twins; [[spoiler: they separate later on in the movie, and neither brother can function nearly as well, as they are used to compensating for the other's weight/movements]].
* ChromaKey: Bob has to use a 'blueberry' suit to keep him out of Walt's scenes on ''[[ShowWithinAShow Honey and the Beaze]]''.
* ConjoinedTwins: Bob and Walt are this, though notably, they're ''non-identical'' conjoined twins, a medical impossibility (or at least, there is no recorded case).
* CreativeClosingCredits: Like ''Film/ShallowHal'' (also made by the Farrelly Bros.), the closing credits have short video clips of ''every single person who worked on the film''.
* DreamCrushingHandicap: Walt wants to be a movie star despite him and Bob being conjoined twins.
* LenoDevice: After the reveal of Walt and Bob being conjoined, they both become huge celebrities, including appearing on ''Series/TheTonightShow with Jay Leno''.
* NoLongerWithUs: After Bob and Walt get potentially fatal separation surgery, the surgeon tells the pair's friends that "we lost them." By which he means the surgery was a success, but he's not sure what room they're in.
* ShowWithinAShow: ''Honey and the Beaze'' is a prime-time TV show that makes Walt famous.
* WrittenInInfirmity: Invoked and parodied with Walt wanting to be an actor while his brother has stage fright, which given that they're conjoined twins, presents quite a problem. The film then shows executives trying to work around this, first by incorporating him into the environment, then by putting him in a ChromaKey suit.
