Overview
From Jim Abrahams, director of Airplane!, Top Secret!, Hot Shots!, Hot Shots Part Deux!, and Mafia!. Comedy legends Bette Midler (Ruthless People) and Lily Tomlin (9 To 5) 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. The top-notch cast includes Fred Ward (Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins), Edward Hermann (Intolerable Cruelty), Michael Gross (Tremors), Seth Green (Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery), and Mary Gross (The Couch Trip).
