Rating: 3/5 -- Fred Ward plays dumb hicks a lot, but never with quite this much comedic energy.

It serves as a showcase for the wonderful, if diverse, comic talents of Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin. Full Review

There could not have been four more perfect roles for the likes of Midler and Tomlin; they play these flip-side characterizations with perfect wit and trascend every cliche. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- an oddity of incessant proportions, a comedy with few laughs but many unwarranted chuckles, which lives and dies on the notion its silly premise will at least be vague enough to provide its actors with great opportunities to improvise. Full Review

...A bright whirligig of a movie....As you watch its buoyant hilarity, the intricacies flow smoothly as honey off a spoon...

Rating: 2.5/5 -- Double the Tomlin & Midler cannot save silly doppelganger gimmickry.

Product Description:

Two sets of twins are mixed up at birth. One set becomes the chief executives of a huge Manhattan conglomerate, while the other set succeeds at becoming poor country bumpkins. They all accidentally meet up at New York's plaza hotel and quickly become comically mixed up.

Plot Synopsis:

Two pairs of identical twins are accidentally switched at birth and end up living very different lives. One pair grows up in bucolic Jupiter Hollow, while the other two are raised in New York City and become powerful business women.
The four eventually reunite in the monumental Plaza Hotel when they take opposite sides in a battle to control the future of the Moramax Corporation and tiny Jupiter Hollow. The rest of the film is fueled by the comedy generated by an extended series of misunderstandings based on two cases of mistaken identity. Double your pleasure; double your fun.
