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.

The Title "Twins" appears with two "i" (one of them is smaller than the other one) referring to the appearance of the two main characters. See more »
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.
