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 jogs to the house where his mother used to live, he had large sweat stains under his arms and chest on his pink shirt. They go inside for a drink and his shirt is now totally dry. See more »
Above average fish out of water/odd couple type comedy
This is a quietly amusing film which I enjoyed more than I expected.
While Schwarzenegger is the "star" of the movie, this is really de Vito's film. He dominates every scene he is in, and maintains a manic character who actually shows some change as the film progresses without losing the basic energy of his persona.
While the plot is a little tenuous at times and there are only one or two real belly laughs I enjoyed the film, even on the small screen. Worth watching, but probably not worth buying.
