Premise: A physically perfect but innocent man goes in search of his long-lost twin brother, who is a short-statured small-time crook.
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 34%
While this Ivan Reitman film has a premise that sells itself, the humor in the film has unfortunately aged. This is the kind of movie that could use some real gut-punchers, since both DeVito and Scharzenegger have great comedic timing. However, in Twins most of the jokes were middling or fell flat, but the film still had heart.
Honestly, though, we found ourselves distracted by just how attractive Kelly Preston is in this film, so there’s that, too.
This culminates in a hotel rendezvous between Preston and Schwarzenegger, while DeVito’s Vincent works things out with his own lady. An all-but abandoned plotline shows a conflict between Vincent and his girlfriend about whether or not they should live together.
One thing we would love to see is the proposed sequel Triplets, which was going to add Eddie Murphy as a long lost third child. Sign us up!
