an oddity of incessant proportions, a comedy with few laughs but many unwarranted chuckles, which lives and dies on the notion its silly premise will at least be vague enough to provide its actors with great opportunities to improvise.

Underrated farce ... Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin are terrific.

Fred Ward plays dumb hicks a lot, but never with quite this much comedic energy.

Double the Tomlin & Midler cannot save silly doppelganger gimmickry.
