Decent comedy has genetically-engineered twins, one who received all the good genes and the other the less desirable one, are united after finally meeting and attempt to find their mother. Arnold was never as good outside of action where he set a very high bar.
If you enjoy the fun of an 80s film, let this Reitman directed film charm you. Punchlines that have set up in earlier scenes that might even get past you in first viewings. Arnold and DiVeto both show how funny they can be, even in a bizzar premise about genetically created Twins.
Con man DeVito is tracked down by Schwarzenegger, who claims they are twin brothers in this contrived comedy. Typical of other eighties comedies, this movie has a good gimmick or idea and the production team seems lost from there, deciding to go with the usual comedy clichés instead of aiming for originality.
A generic 80's movie that encapsulates the hallmark style purity and optimism of American pop culture of that decade. Two genetically modified "twins" separated at birth-one an intellectual, athletic super human, the other a slimy conman-learn to accept each other and love each other for their differences while one searches for their mother, and the other tries to make a fortune on a dangerous sale of stolen goods.
