Tomlin and Midler are fantastic

on 5/27/2012

It is so much fun to watch these two virtuoso comediennes bounce off each other; and the double identities make it doubly fun. I especially love the contrast between Bette Midler's two characters -- the New York company exec has some truly memorable zingers. The men they all end up with are great too, though I see fireworks down the line for some of them!

If you are a fan of either Lilly Tomlin or Bette Midler, you'll love this movie. And if you're not, but you enjoy silly comedies, you'll still have a great time. I won't repeat the movie description here, but the twists and entanglements resulting from two sets of mixed-at-birth twins makes for some great comedic moments.

Editors Note
Note Two sets of twins are mixed up at birth. One set becomes the chief executives of a huge Manhattan conglomerate, while the other set succeeds at becoming poor country bumpkins. They all accidentally meet up at New York's plaza hotel and quickly become comically mixed up.
Plot Summary
Summary Two pairs of identical twins are accidentally switched at birth and end up living very different lives. One pair grows up in bucolic Jupiter Hollow, while the other two are raised in New York City and become powerful business women.| The four eventually reunite in the monumental Plaza Hotel when they take opposite sides in a battle to control the future of the Moramax Corporation and tiny Jupiter Hollow. The rest of the film is fueled by the comedy generated by an extended series of misunderstandings based on two cases of mistaken identity. Double your pleasure; double your fun.
New York Times "...A most cheerful, very breezy summer farce....Uncommon zest..." 06/10/1988 p.C10
Los Angeles Times "...A bright whirligig of a movie....As you watch its buoyant hilarity, the intricacies flow smoothly as honey off a spoon..." 06/10/1988 p.C1
