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

Throughout the movie, Julius tells everyone he meets that he is from an island (shown at the beginning of the movie) in the South Pacific 300 nautical miles (350 miles) SSW of the Fiji Islands. Although the island depicted in the movie is fictional, there is indeed a VERY small island 350 miles in the SW/SSW direction of Fiji known locally as Ceva-I-Ra. Ceva-I-Ra (also known as Conway Reef) is an atoll-type coral reef stretching just under 2 miles long with a tiny sand cay (with some vegetation) in the center approx. 2 hectares in area. See more »
In the opening scene the doors to the laboratory are clearly marked 'top secret' and sealed the day the twins were born, but when the twins returned to the laboratory the doors were marked 'restricted entry'. See more »
[On Vince's trail, Webster has come to his house, and finds it empty, save for Julius, the cat]
Well what have we here? What a cute little kitty! So, where's Daddy?
[Picking up the cat, he finds the information Vince wrote down in the trash basket. He holds it up to read it]
Well, well, well. Thank you very much...

Part of a genetic experiment and separated at birth, twins Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito meet at last some 30 years later and hilarious situations follow. A sophomoric idea turns out to work beautifully due to the performances of the film's two leads. Just enough suspense is created as the two look for their long lost mother and DeVito gets into hot water when he steals a car that has some very valuable cargo in the trunk. A nice little entertaining film that serves its purpose well. 4 stars out of 5.
