A gender-reversed take on A Comedy of Errors, with Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin as two sets of twins mixed at birth. A slapstick delight from the height of Midler’s career renaissance.
'Directed by Jim Abrahams, Midler and Tomlin seem to revel in the characterisations they are allowed in this ditzy film, and it's a joy to watch. Forget the plot and gimmicks, it's these two stars who dominate every frame with their boundless energy … There could not have been four more perfect roles for the likes of Midler and Tomlin; they play these flipside characterisations with perfect wit and transcend every cliché.' – United Press International
