What happens when you take the director of Ghostbusters, add Arnold Schwarzenegger, and throw in a handful of comedy writers? Depends on what year. This podcast visits the 1988 result, premise comedy Twins, where Danny Devito is the long lost criminal sibling to Schwarzenegger’s naive multi-talented behemoth. Can they reconnect, reunite with their long-lost mother and escape with a stolen prototype engine, or will a giant chain fall on their heads over an extended period of time?
Filmmaker Nic Barker joins Rob and Jemry on the podcast this week for a look at one of Arnold’s first leading roles in a comedy, Twins. They analyse, recast, and ponder what Hollywood would do with the premise now, all before hearing about the upcoming Josh Brolin/Peter Dinklage film Brothers.
