Description by OLDIES.com:

Produced and directed by comedy veteran Bud Yorkin, Start the Revolution Without Me broke ground for a comedy revolution. It takes the tumultuous "let-them-eat-cake" days of the French Revolution and gives everyone a figurative pie in the face. Two sets of twins are mismatched at birth so that years later, each set will have one Gene Wilder and one Donald Sutherland. One set grows up to be aristocratic swashbucklers, the other set are peasants. In a hilarious fluke of fate, they crisscross across classes. In the years following Start the Revolution Without Me, Woody Allen, Mel Brooks, and the Abrahams/Zucker/Zucker team would all create madcap comedy masterpieces. A lineup like that must have had a tremendous Start.

Product Description:

Two sets of mismatched twins--one pair ruling class and the other peasant--unexpectedly cross paths during the height of the French Revolution. A charming farce in the tradition of the great costume films of the 30's and 40's.

Plot Synopsis:

Gene Wilder and Donald Sutherland join comedic forces in this satirical farce set during the French Revolution.
A pair of commoner brothers are confused for a royal set of twins, whom they perfectly resemble. The first, raggedy duo finds itself ordered to aid King Louis XVI in his attempts to curb the shenanigans of Marie Antoinette and Duke d'Escargot.
This mistaken-identity crisis is but one link in a long chain of whimsical adventures and derring-do.
