Storyline

On her deathbed a woman tells her son that 30 years before she had been a surrogate mother for a millionaire, and that he is that baby's identical twin. He goes to Los Angeles to try and get some of the inheritance, but his brother refuses to even talk to him. So he gets an apartment across from his brother and begins a stakeout as he writes a tabloid story about it, and begins to fall in love from a distance with his brother's wife.

Surprisingly enjoyable..
25 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A poor twin of a millionaire arrives in Los Angeles to beg for a slice of the pie from his estranged brother. Unfortunately the tycoon turns out to be a tightwad, so he decides to double for him.. falling in love with the guy's wife in the process. A very complicated chain of events ensues..

What a shock! A one pound film from a charity shop that turns out to not be half bad. It has thrills, spills, chills.. and even a bit of decent nudity thrown in. I won't even begin to get into the twists in the plot here, but sufficed to say there are quite a few. The actors acquit themselves well.. and the twins are never even glimpsed on camera together, so there's none of that ridiculous blue screen stuff. Hurray! This really was a bit of a pleasure to sit through, and I can quite happily recommend it (Providing you can find it first). A 6/10 all the way.
