Jamie Lee Curtis,
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

The film was mentioned by Doug Gottlieb on "The Doug Gottlieb Show" (a sports radio show). Gottlieb compared real life twins, Anthony Davis and Antoinette Davis to the film's stars, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito. Anthony Davis, a 6'10" forward for the University of Kentucky basketball program, dwarfs his twin sister who checks in at 5'8". See more »

Mary Ann Benedict:
Thanks, this is gonna be great.
Mary Ann Benedict:
[as they turn to look at Julius and Vincent]
I just can't get over how alike they are.
Oh yes, it's a beautiful day.
[Julius and Vincent yawn in unison, and the camera pans down to show each of them pushing a stroller with twin children in them]

The Title "Twins" appears with two "i" (one of them is smaller than the other one) referring to the appearance of the two main characters. See more »
It stars a particulary fine Schwarzenegger in his first comedy outing and he was outstanding in every scene, DeVito shines all the way through and he has many funny lines. Together they had the charisma and talent to make for many memorable and superb scenes, it was all outstanding in this film . An extremely beautiful Kelly Preston also starred and gave extra spice to the film.
The story is cute and charming, the music soundtrack was very good and Georges Delerue and Randy Edelman gives us the best tunes ever made.
As comedies go Twins is my favourite because it combines a perfect cast with a charming story and great music. Great directing job by Ivan Reitman.
