Stuck isn’t your average Farrelly Brothers fare. Sure, the sibs poke fun at the Tenors’ disability, mocking their predicament while milking the inevitable tasteless jokes. (“He’s a little clingy”). But beyond the gimmicky play on words and a myriad of site gags lies a deep connection between two men who know nothing but togetherness.
