very fun movie
27 February 2002 | by (Nashville, TN) – See all my reviews

I'm a big Arnold fan so I enjoy most of his films and this is easily the best comedy he's ever done, one of the best comedies ever period! It deserves a much higher vote than a 5.9 I'd give it a 9. Arnold has been living on an island with his teacher for all his life till he finds out he has a twin so he goes and finds him and together they get Devito out of trouble, ok I didn't tell the story well but the movie is just hilarious and fun to watch Arnold and Devito make a good team.
