Bette Midler (THE FIRST WIVES CLUB, BEACHES) and Lily Tomlin (DISNEY'S THE KID, ALL OF ME, 9 TO 5) -- the first ladies of laughter -- star in this critically acclaimed box office hit about two sets of identical twins who are mismatched at birth. Forty years later, their paths cross amid the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, and the result is unrestrained pandemonium. New York's opulent Plaza Hotel is the setting for a wildly hilarious, classic case of mistaken identities, split personalities, and double trouble! With the unparalleled comedic talents of Midler and Tomlin, two's company ... four's a riot!

This is a great story about TWO sets of twins that are born in this rinky dink hospital in Jupiter Hollow, only to have one twin from each set mixed with the other. It's a hilarious romp and definitely a feel good movie. I think far too many critics these days miss that point. If a movie makes you feel good and makes you want to watch it over and over again, that's a 5 star movie.
Big Business will keep you coming back for a great does of monkey business!! Viva Tomlin and Midler!!
When a rich couple have to have their twin girls in a small town, all kinds of madcap comedy starts to happen. First, the kids get mixed up. The rich couple is supposed to have two Bette Midlers, if you can believe it. And the poor folks are suppose to have two Lily Tomlins. But each couple gets one of each. And to make matters even funnier, both Lily's are named Rose and both Bette's are named Sadie. Each Sadie has a different personality. Each Rose has a different personality. Where do I begin?
The poor folks Sadie is a cow milkin', sweet singin' kind of gal who yodels and has lots of fun.
The rich folks Sadie is head of the family business now that her mom and dad are dead, and she thinks she's hot stuff. She's all stuck up and full of herself.
But, when poor Sadie visits New York, she has a lot in common with rich Sadie. They both like the same kinds of clothes, and like to eat the same things.
Poor Rose is Lily Tomlin at her best as a brash, life ain't gonna stop her kind of gal. Rich Rose is Lily Tomlin as an accident getting ready to happen. Poor Rose lets all her attitude hang out, and says just what she's thinking. Rich Rose cowers behind rich sister Sadie.
But when they all get together, the fun really begins, as ex-spouses and boyfriends find out they are attracted to Sadie, but it's the other Sadie they're really interested in. Same way with Rose.Read more ›
This movie is so happy, uplifting and entertaining from begining to end that I've bought it yet again; first vhs many years ago, then dvd, now blu-ray. Buying blu-ray will make you feel that you're watching the movie for the 1st time again and a very big difference from dvd. The title menu is also cool with the black and white screen split in 4 and background music.
I gave it 5 stars because I don't consider that 2 or 3 minutes in the begining of the movie of some graininess is enough to take a star away from this great movie and wonderful video quality after those few minutes. Also other reviewers have removed more than one star just because of those 2 or 3 minutes. Maybe they didn't keep watching after that?
There are many wonderful old movies that I would love to see come out in blu-ray even if the quality is not perfect but is at least widescreen and better than dvd which this is.
The story begins in a flash back when wealthy New Yorkers Hunt and Binky Shelton are passing through rural backwater Jupitor Hollow when Binky goes into labour. At the same time locals Garth and Iona Ratliff also are expecting and both women give birth at the same moment and both produce twins which are not only given the same names of Sadie and Rose but are also mixed up. We move forward forty years to where Sadie Shelton is the corporate head of Moramax that is wanting to off load its ownership of Holomade, the local industry in Jupitor Hollow. Getting wind of their plans the militant Jupitor Hollow resident Rose Ratliff decides to go fight these "Pinstriped Trouser Snakes", on their own territory and Sadie eagerly follows along anxious to get out of boring Jupitor Hollow.Read more ›
