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

Schwarzenegger got 20% of the profits, and made $35,000,000 through international sales, video/DVD sales and TV screenings. He earned more money from Twins (1988) than any of the Terminator movies. See more »
When Dr. Traven is explaining the experiment to the twins, he says that "the embryo split" to create them. First of all, embryos do not split--the zygote (fertilized egg) splits to be come two embryos. Second, if the splitting zygote was the case, Julius and Vincent would be identical twins. Obviously, they are fraternal (where two sperm fertilize two eggs at the same time). See more »
What happens when you put two of the most popular actors with the opposite physical characteristics together in a hilarious Ivan Reitman comedy , the result is "Twins". starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny Devito.
The film is about twins whose birth was involved with a science experiment . They are separated at birth due to a simple lie. But when Julius , the well structured twin is told that he actually has a brother , he leaves his tropical island ,and heads out to find his brother , Vincent. On the other hand ,Vincent , the short and defensless one is exactly opposite of Julius , he is a criminal , and car crook who is now involved with the Klane brothers , the three deadly mobsters. Well , they reunite , and later become good friends . With two beautiful girls and a secret that could get vincent rich , they set out to find their birth mother.
Also a great supporting cast with Kelly Preston and Chloe Webb as the girl twins who fall in love with Vincent and Julius and inbarge on their trip to find their mother. And Maury Chaykin , Tom McCleister , and Davin Efron as the deadly Klane brothers , besides Arnold and Danny , Maury Chaykin (the chubby Canadian with a familiar face) also gives the audience some amusement.
