Storyline

A brother and sister, sitting in a coffee bar, bicker mildly about whose idea it was to come to Memphis and which kind of cigarette is fresher. Danny, their waiter, comes by offering refills; after determining they are twins, he guesses which is the evil one. Without a pause, he sits down and offers his theory about Elvis's twin. He drones on. The good twin finally speaks up, giving her own opinion. The waiter is unfazed. After his boss finally calls him back to work, the twins are free to resume their bickering amidst the coffee and cigarettes. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Perhaps my second or third favorite of the C&C shorts: A-
7 June 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the shorts from Jim Jarmusch's 17-year compilation devoted to two of the most accepted of habits brings together relations of director Spike Lee, and the then lessor known actor Steve Buscemi. The short pulls off it's laughs while being blunt as well as subtle, if that makes sense. The Lee's are stuck in Memphis, and Elvis conspiracizer Buscemi tries out his 'evil-twin Elvis' theory on them. There's not a whole lot too the short, but what it delivers is genuine, and funny. The music as well is placed in with the right gusto. It's hard for me to say if it's my favorite of the vignette's from Jarmusch's mix of caffeine and nicotene laden shorts, however it does strike up as being one of the most memorable.
