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.

Critics Consensus: Though it offers a few modest pleasures for undemanding viewers, Twins leans too heavily on the wackiness of its premise to overcome its narrative shortcomings.

Silly '80s mismatched-sibling story has profanity, violence.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Twins is a low-key, slightly dated '80s comedy directed by Ivan Reitman. It offers some positive messages about family bonds. There are some fights and more than a few guns, and in several instances small amounts of blood are shown. Adults kiss, and sex is clearly implied, including an adulterous affair, but nothing more than kissing in bed is shown. We briefly see a topless photo in a magazine. Strong language mostly consists of "s--t" and "ass" and variations on each.
