In the 1940s in the small town of Jupiter Hollow, two sets of identical twins are born in the same hospital on the same night. One set to a poor local family and the other to a rich family just passing through. The dizzy nurse on duty accidentally mixes the twins unbeknown to the parents. Our story flashes forward to the 1980s where the mismatched sets of twins are about to cross paths following a big business deal to closedown the Jupiter Hollow factory. Written by

The name of the big business was a conglomerate called "Moramax". The name is similar to the name of real-life film company "Miramax", who at the time of the production of this picture, had been an independent group since 1979, and remained one until 1993 when The Walt Disney Company acquired it. Ironically, Big Business
(1988) was produced by Touchstone Pictures which is a brand of The Walt Disney Company. See more
