Julius and Vincent Benedict are the results of an experiment that would allow for the perfect child. Julius was planned and grows to athletic proportions. Vincent is an accident and is somewhat smaller in stature. Vincent is placed in an orphanage while Julius is taken to a South Seas island and raised by philosophers. Vincent becomes the ultimate lowlife and is about to be killed by loan sharks when Julius discovers that he has a brother and begins looking for him. Written by

The money was not available to pay to the two main stars and the director their normal fees. They decided to split a percentage of the gross profits between the three of them and ended up making more than they would have made taking their fees upfront because the film was such a hit. See more »
The twins were told that their mother was at an artists' colony 200 miles north of Santa Fe. That would have put them in downtown Alamosa, Colo. (36 miles too far north to be in New Mexico). See more »
I'm a big Arnold fan so I enjoy most of his films and this is easily the best comedy he's ever done, one of the best comedies ever period! It deserves a much higher vote than a 5.9 I'd give it a 9. Arnold has been living on an island with his teacher for all his life till he finds out he has a twin so he goes and finds him and together they get Devito out of trouble, ok I didn't tell the story well but the movie is just hilarious and fun to watch Arnold and Devito make a good team.
