Arnold's best comedy

This is a quietly amusing film which I enjoyed more than I expected.

While Schwarzenegger is the "star" of the movie, this is really de Vito's film. He dominates every scene he is in, and maintains a manic character who actually shows some change as the film progresses without losing the basic energy of his persona.

While the plot is a little tenuous at times and there are only one or two real belly laughs I enjoyed the film, even on the small screen. Worth watching, but probably not worth buying.

One of Arnie's better comedies.

The idea of Arnold Schwarzenegger being in a comedy sounds like a recipe for disaster. But his stiff delivery actually works in his favour for this film, and he makes a great double-act with Danny DeVito.

Arnie plays Julius Benedict, and is the result of a top secret government experiment to create the world's most physically and mentally enhanced human being. Six men who were model citizens, like athletes and scientists were chosen to contribute a sample of genetic material. Mary-Ann Benedict was chosen to carry the baby. But instead of giving birth to one baby, she had twins.

Julius was taken to a tropical island in the South Pacific where he was educated and cared for. By the time he was 35, he can speak up to twelve languages, holds degrees in biology, chemistry and physics, and is an expert in the martial arts. When he is told he has a twin brother, Vincent, he decides to leave the seclusion of the island to find him.

Vincent (Danny DeVito) had a completely different upbringing than Julius. He was taken to an orphanage in Los Angeles, where he eventually ran away. By the time he was 35, he is up to his eyes in debt, loan sharks are after him, and he is now in jail.

When they finally meet, they are both shocked that they look nothing alike, and are almost completely different in every way. Julius is very naive, and has a big heart. Vincent is a selfish hustler, who has as much taste for women as he does for money. Despite their differences, they try to track down their mother, and learn more about each other in the process.

Arnie and DeVito have a terrific chemistry, and director Ivan Reitman made the wise choice of putting the two of them together. Its clear in their scenes together that they enjoyed working with each other. Scenes such as Julius saving Vince from a loan shark, and Vince teaching Julius how to dance are definite highlights.

Reitman adds more into the film with a subplot about a stolen engine Vince wants to sell. Honestly this doesn't contribute anything to the film, and the most interesting things are Julius and Vince's exploits.

Arnie manages to be convincingly awkward as he deals with the outside world for the first time. DeVito is perfectly cast too, and he shows what a great actor he is by being dramatic as well as sarcastic. Interestingly, when Reitman paired them up again in Junior, the magic wasn't the same.

Although not on the same level with Reitman's Ghostbusters or Evolution, Twins is very entertaining, and is carried almost single-handed by Arnie and DeVito.

Jolly good fun.

Funny film and convincing acting from both De Vito and Schwarzenegger. The story itself seems a bit far-fetched although this is compensated by lots of hilarious moments and situations. The fun comes mainly from De Vito, he's at his best here. And if you don't like Schwarzenegger's action films - try this comedy! You'll sort of like him!
