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

In the scene when Julius and Vincent are walking down the street in matching suits, Vincent calls Julius "Mr. Ice" in reference to how cool he looks. Arnold Schwarzenegger later played Mr. Freeze in Batman & Robin. See more »
Vincent has a calico cat named Julius. A calico, barring a rare genetic abnormality, is always female. See more »
For the first time in my life, I'm... *pissed off*!
[trying to hold Julius back]
Julius, don't do this to me! I got a car to deliver! The last thing I need is a detour to the slammer!

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 »
Schwarzenegger and De Vito (both!) steal the show in "Twins".
Arnold "is back" as "Julius"; the result of a secret genetic experiment to help create a better human being. He has lived a sheltered life on a distant tropical island and has no real practical experience with real life issues; especially with dangerous situations involving criminal activity. He has matured into a kind of naive innocent not unlike anyone you may have found in the proverbial "Garden of Eden". His desire to trace his roots leads him to the big city where he soon discovers he has a "twin" brother named "Vincent" (expertly played by Danny De Vito). Vincent was raised in an orphanage and subsequently has led a life of crime; he seems to favor car theft as his main source of income. These two soon meet and the antics from then on are nothing but hilarious. Arnold attaches himself to Danny like a puppy dog and is very determined to help and protect him. Together, they seek their birth mother as well as get into all sorts of amusing and sometimes potentially dangerous situations. But don't worry fans; with Ah-nold around what could possibly go wrong? Just remember to add this VERY funny movie to your collection of comedies on DVD and remember to pay (or avoid altogether) those parking tickets! Or get a bicycle! Or a scooter! Just don't forget the pop corn!
