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.
