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.

Someone has taken their love of stooges one step too far.
20 March 2002 | by (Staffs, England) – See all my reviews

This one is for Raimi (and stooge) fans only. It's really not that bad, I think that Sam perhaps took his stooge imitating(as seen in all Raimi movies) a little far. In fact you can imagine this being a movie from the Stooge/Marx stable the main character(who was written for Bruce Campbell obviously) is a mix of Harpo Marx & The Stooges. It kind of trails off towards the end. The acting is all over the top silliness with sight gags stuck in everywhere for the hell of it. Although he didn't want recognition as writing this I can imagine this is a movie that Sam still enjoys watching it just seems his level of humour.
