Beautiful film

This was a great film. The story is of a man (Julius Benedict, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger) who grows up on a tropical island with a scientist, and knows nothing of modern society. Then one day he finds out he has a twin brother in L.A. He was also told that his mother died giving birth to him and his brother. When he gets to L.A. he finds his brother, who appears to be nothing like him, sort of an opposite person entirely, although they share some things in common. Julius is very pleasant, sensible, intelligent, Vincent, his brother, is a petty car thief and always getting into trouble. Julius goes looking for where their mother lived and finds she is gone. He finds one of his 6 fathers, but not his mother. He is given an address in New Mexico to find a scientist who was at his birth. (Julius was part of a secret govt experiment to produce a superhuman man). He goes with his brother Vincent to find the scientist, who tells them their mother is alive and well and living near Santa Fe. So they go off looking for her, find her but don't realise it, as she thinks they are tricking her. She was lied to as well, being told that her son was dead, and nothing about the twin son who was born 1 minute later.

Add to that some villains chasing the brothers as Vincent is driving a stolen car with a secret jet engine stored in the back, and some comedy along the way, and some magnificent scenery along the way.

I thought the relationship between the two twins was great, very well done, and believable. What they said about being a family was very moving. And at the end it all works out well.

An excellent film about relationships, family, and what is important in life, and about how to do the right thing, when at the end the twins do the right thing and get rewarded.

I recommend this film. If you view it as a violent movie about beating the criminals, it can work on that level, if you view it as a comedy it is quite good too, but as a film about family and relationships is where it really works best, view this with an open heart.

Unidentical Twins

Created in a lab through DNA experimentation, "Julius Benedict" (Arnold Schwarzenegger) lives on the tropical island with the scientist who designed him and develops into a physical and intellectual giant. Then one he discovers that he has a brother named "Vincent Benedict" (Danny DeVito) who was born just seconds after him. Naturally, Julius is excited to learn that he has a brother and travels half way across the world to meet him. However, when he finally catches up to him he not only has to bail him out of jail but discovers that they are total opposites in just about everything as well. To make matters even more bizarre, Vincent has a girlfriend named "Linda Mason" (Chloe Webb) who just so happens to have a twin sister by the name of "Marnie Mason" (Kelly Preston)—and upon meeting Julius she falls head over heels for him. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was pleasant little comedy which had some amusing moments here and there courtesy of both Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito. Additionally, having a gorgeous actress like Kelly Preston certainly didn't hurt matters either. Be that as it may, while some of the humor got old after awhile this film remained enjoyable for the most part and I have rated it accordingly. Slightly above average.

Kelly Preston Stands Out

Continuing my plan to watch every Arnie movie in order, I come to Twins.

Plot In A Paragraph: Julius (Arnie) a physically perfect but innocent man goes in search of his long-lost twin brother Vincent (Danny De Vito) a small-time crook.

Last time I watched this movie, Arnie's love child had just been revealed to the world, and I felt it lost a lot of its charm due to Arnie not being so innocent.

But it's easy to look past now, and again get caught up in the charm of the movie. The movie gets by solely on the charisma of Arnie and Danny De Vito,

Of the supporting cast Kelly Preston stands out, she certainly stood out to me back in the 80's. Back then only Kylie Minogue and Christina Applegate (more specifically Kelly Bundy in Married With Children) were hotter to me. She is ridiculously hot here.

Chloe Webb is OK, so is Bonnie Bartlett, Trey Wilson is poor and thankfully not involved much, Marshall Bell is weak as "You've seen my face" Webster. Arnies old mate Sven-Ole Thorsen again pops up, as does Sly's First Blood costar David Carruso in a small role, and look out for a young Heather Graham as the younger version of the mother.

With the exception of the main stars most of the cast didn't do much of note after this. Even the gorgeous Kelly Preston did not capitalise on this movies success, I'm baffled she wasn't offered better projects than what she followed this with.

One thing that has always bothered me, Julius made Vincent return the money, but to whom? The money came from Beetroot who was killed. And De Vito says "Four million dollars" at the end of the movie, yet earlier the price was $5,000,000 did Vincent lit to jilulius and secretly keep one million.

Highlights for me were the first time they meet in the prison, every time Kelly Preston appeared on screen in her 80's attire, the scene with the mother in the office is surprisingly touching!! Something about De Vito's eyes touches me. And of course Kelly Preston (My GOD is she hot) seducing Arnie.

Arnie finally had a smash hit, that not only ended the year in the Top 10 of the highest grossing movies of the year. It was also his first movie to gross over $100 million at the domestic box office. Twins ranked 5th with a gross of $111 million. Both were a personal best for Arnie.
