An average movie

Already when the movie started, during the first 5 minutes, I thought that the concept was pretty lame and the bad jokes during the movie didn't help... Very average stuff and not really worth a look.

“In the 1940s in the small town of Jupiter Hollow, two sets of identical twins are born in the same hospital on the same night. One set to a poor local family and the other to a rich family just passing through. The dizzy nurse on duty accidentally mixes the twins unbeknown to the parents.

Our story flashes forward to the 1980s where the mismatched sets of twins are about to cross paths following a big business deal to closedown the Jupiter Hollow factory.

Very funny movie of twins switched at birth. Every moment of this film is just hilarious. I would definetly watch it again and recommend to a friend!” read more

Movies I Hate to Love (9 movies items)

"Corny 80's comedy with a contrived plot (and that Higher Love song). This film is actually quite ridiculous. And it's kind of weird how the Lily Tomlin twins are both saps and the Bette Midler twins are kind of bitches. Shouldn't most of their personalities come from how they were raised? I don't know but I sure do love this crappy movie. "
