    Superstars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito team up for twice the laughs in this hilarious box-office blockbuster from director Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters). An ambitious genetic experiment takes the wrong turn when two twins - who look nothing alike - are born and then separated. Years later, the unlikely siblings meet: Julius, a highly educated but sheltered giant with a big heart, and Vincent, a pint-sized hustler with an insatiable lust for women and money. With girlfriends in tow and a hitman on their tail, the newfound brothers set off on a wild, cross-country misadventure to find their mother - but end up finding out more about themselves.

    It is a very funny movie.

    When Julius first finds out, he is very excited and he thinks his brother will "be just like him," to quote.
    Robin Goodfellow
    My husband and I have always loved this movie, this movie is worth watching at least once.

    While this is a very enjoyable movie, the DVD doesn't have that same amazing quality of most DVDs. Still better than VHS, the DVD is too red and too noisy. There are no extras, no 5.1 audio, and no widescreen.

    Format: DVD
    With this movie Arnold Schwarzenegger showed just how long those muscular legs are in terms of talent, range, and intelligence. This is a wry, wistful, and lovely movie that illustrates how easily Schwarzenegger could switch gears from the heavy action-oriented vehicles that had made him a star to more sentimental and purposeful films that intentionally made audiences both laugh and think. Indeed, hidden in all this well-choreographed slapstick is a self-deprecating kind of intelligent humor no one suspected the big guy to be capable of. Matched memorably with Danny Devito as the twin trapped with all the bad genetics even as Schwarzenegger ended up with the great genes and the life associated with it, the two work off each other in a movie so funny it is hard to try to describe.
    Every thing about the sequences works, from Arnie's naïve wonder with all the new experiences to his ear-phoned airplane accompaniment to "Yackety-Yak". Watching him do something as straightforward as walking down the street in suit coat and Bermuda shorts becomes an exercise in comic genius, with both the scriptwriters and director Ivan Reitman working overtime to create this comic masterpiece. Devito is in rare form, and we find ourselves empathizing with this guy who discovers he came from the throwaway sperm that was used to create his brother, the wunderkind. No wonder his life has been a virtual wallowing in the wastelands! Yet from the first meeting there seems to be an almost magical connection between the twin brothers, and Reitman has scrupulously given us a repertoire of little aspects or facets of each that lend credibility to this idea of a familial bond.
    This movie ensured Schwarzenegger's wider appeal to audiences beyond the action and sci-fi genre.

    This is such a great movie, but the dvd is really not too good. Like many other great older movies, the studio has not given this movie the proper dvd transfer that it diserves.

    Format: DVD
    I've seen this movie a zillion times, and was quite shocked when I bought and watched the DVD, as the version I'd taped off the TV years ago, was edited beyond belief! There was a lot of 'unsavoury' language cut out, and sometimes, even full jokes! I didn't recognise half of the early scenes when Julius & Vincent are in Vincent's house, as there's bits about Julius still being a virgin at 35 (and I thought I was a late starter!)

    Arnie & Danny Devito are a great comedic pairing in this movie, Danny tall as he is wide, and Arnie showing off his muscles. They also starred together in Junior, which, despite what one reviewer said, is NOT a sequel to this!

    The poster is enough to tell if you'll like this or not. If you think the casting of Arnie and Danny is amusing as a little and large combo then you'll probably like this. If you think it dumb then you may not appreciate this. The comedy is very much a mix of odd-couple and fish-out-of-water style jokes from Julius as opposed to the streetwise Vincent. The plot is largely meaningless - a mix of the two taking a secret engine across country while looking for their mother, and throw in two pretty girls (Chloe Webb & John Travolta's future wife, Kelly Preston).

    All the fish-out-of-water jokes are funny, but sometimes not laugh out loud hilarious. It works mainly due to the casting of the lead two. Danny plays the sleazy one very well but the best one is Arnie - he merely plays a big naïve lump of muscle. However what he does do is allow himself to be sent up very well - you have to look out for it in most of his movies now, he always sends himself up somehow!

    Format: DVD
    Wow twins is one of those movies you just got to laugh at. It tells the story of two completely differeent people who were mixed together in a lab and are twins. One Arnols Schwarzenegger a 200 pound muscle man from a tropical island. ANd Danny Devito a 100 pound short man with a bad attitude. Throughout the movie Arnold and Danny search to find their real mom and bond at the same time. There's a part where Arnold is forced to borrrow one of Danny's shirts. Though physically impossible due to the fact Arnold has a chest about 15 inches bigger than Danny's...but o well. Anyway Arnold's bicep is so big that it eventually rips the shirt!!! So they go to a grocery store to get him a new shirt. I was then introduced to how muscluar Arnold really was. He was in great shape. WOW WHAT A CHEST. Buy this movie.

    When I first saw this film, I did not like it, but somthing told me to watch it again, & the second time around I loved it, and have ever since, once you get past the shallow back story, this film will entertain you, it is without a doubt a film the whole family could enjoy. Arnold tried to do somthing different here and did & Danny DeVito reminds you why he is so fuuny & serious at the same time, a fun film for those who don't take it so seriously, my only complaint about this DVD is the Full Frame version, Universal should reconsider rereleasing a widescreen version, they have with their other films that came out at about the same time, why not this one? hopefully they will someday.
