Big Business (1988)

big businessBy Scott Goldfine

Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin team up in dual roles as two pairs of mismatched twins in this wacky comedy. Midler, as usual, steals scenes with her wicked flamboyance. As a result, Tomlin gets somewhat lost in the shuffle.

The film is plagued by a hopelessly silly plot, but it does have many funny moments. And if you can swallow the implausibility, you’re in for a good time. Fred Ward also stars. Rated PG.

GRADE: C+
