Rae Dawn Chong,
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 »
When Julius drives the car on two wheels, the camera films Julius close up with one hand on the steering wheel and his other hand holding onto the cars front window, but in the long shots, the stunt driver has both hands on wheel. See more »
Funny film and convincing acting from both De Vito and Schwarzenegger. The story itself seems a bit far-fetched although this is compensated by lots of hilarious moments and situations. The fun comes mainly from De Vito, he's at his best here. And if you don't like Schwarzenegger's action films - try this comedy! You'll sort of like him!
