"This movie started out with a large, expensive food fight. As much as I hate seeing food wasted, I should have known the film would go downhill from there. This is a comedy about identical twins and multiple personalities disorder. Of course, the multiple personalities aren't everyday folk; they're over-the-type personas like lounge lizards and cowboys. Each time he changes personalities, they give him a loud costume change and don't allow for the actions to speak for themselves. People are thrown out of windows; clothes keep getting accidentally ripped off; all that lowest common denominator stuff. I saw this 'cuz I heard Peter Lupus was in this, but nobody stood out as that Playgirl centerfold here.
I never saw that film where Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin play mismatched twins, but what made that film annoying plays itself out here. I'll give this movie one bit of credit. It was full of gross-out humor and made in the early 1990s, long before "There's Something About Mary" and all of the hit gross-out movies to follow. It may be prescient, but it's otherwise worthless. Only the most puerile viewer could enjoy all of the silliness on display here."
