Julius and Vincent Benedict are the results of an experiment that would allow for the perfect child. Julius was planned and grows to athletic proportions. Vincent is an accident and is somewhat smaller in stature. Vincent is placed in an orphanage while Julius is taken to a South Seas island and raised by philosophers. Vincent becomes the ultimate lowlife and is about to be killed by loan sharks when Julius discovers that he has a brother and begins looking for him. Written by

The film was mentioned by Doug Gottlieb on "The Doug Gottlieb Show" (a sports radio show). Gottlieb compared real life twins, Anthony Davis and Antoinette Davis to the film's stars, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito. Anthony Davis, a 6'10" forward for the University of Kentucky basketball program, dwarfs his twin sister who checks in at 5'8". See more »

What do we do? Most people on this planet cause problems. The Benedict Corporation solves them. We're a consulting firm. A think-tank. Sort of like the Rand Corporation - only smarter!

Now, I was only 3 when this movie was released, so obviously I couldn't see it in the theater, it never really got brought up in my house, I don't even know anyone who has seen this movie. But I watched I love the 80's one time and they brought up this movie and it looked pretty funny. It had some really nice comedic moments with both Arnold and Danny, they were both so naturally funny and clicked so well together, you'd almost believe they were related, they were so in sync.
It's about Arnold and Danny being separated at birth, it was meant for only Arnold to be born and just turn into the perfect human being, he pretty much is, he's kind, sensitive, funny, and disciplined. But there was a side effect and all the badness was born into Danny, Arnold learns he has a brother and flies to New York to see him. Arnold is more obvious as the one who wants a family while Danny is just trying to get his way out of debt with the Mafia.
Twins is a fun little comedy that I think anyone could enjoy. Although, it's not my favorite comedy with either Danny or Arnold, they still had so much fun that you couldn't resist this film. Especially how Arnold sings "That good ol' rock -n- roll", just hilarious!
