Idential twins Philbert and Nathan are too much of a burden on their mother so she separates them by sending Nathan, the "bad seed", to an insane asylum where he grows up with multi personalities while Philbert becomes a well-known senator. On one typical day, Nathan escapes from the asylum to find his long-lost brother and somehow ends up at Philbert's mansion and since they both look alike, they cause some outrageously silly mishaps in which Philbert's long-suffering wife Diane and his mistress/housekeeper Miss Tress are fooled by the deception.

I like slapstick if done well, but it certainly isn't in this idiotic "comedy" about two twin brothers in different life situations switching roles (boy, compare "Trading Places"). Neither the slapstick nor anything else in this movie is funny. Perhaps the pie fight is a minor redeemer, for even tho it could be better in certain ways, it is so long and thorough that it is somewhat enjoyable. It is also tainted by the stupid antics, however. If you've seen "Spy Hard" and did not like it, do no see this. You gotta be nuts to like this film.
