Storyline

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.

Trivia

Creative tensions between director Scott Spiegel and one of the film's producers, Brad Wyman, resulted in Spiegel being replaced by another director, Adam Rifkin, three weeks into production. Wyman later stated that he regretted firing Spiegel and blamed it on the fact that he (Wyman) "wasn't a very good producer at the time." As a result, the writers of this movie - Sam Raimi, Ivan Raimi, Bruce Campbell, and Scott Spiegel - were so embarrassed with the end result that they all used pseudonyms instead of their own names in the credits.

Stupid movie
23 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

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.
