Twins

Twins (1988)

Continuity mistake: There is a scene where Arnie and Danny DeVito are in the washroom of a nightclub. In one shot there is a beer bottle on top of a paper towel dispenser, and in the next shot it's on the other paper towel dispenser.

Other mistake: When Devito sends Arnold into the house to get his stuff and go with him to New Mexico and Houston, Devito quickly jumps into the car to drive off. (You can see on the long street behind him that there are no cars coming). Yet, not one second has gone by and you are looking at him from the front of the car and Linda and her sister pull up behind him blocking him in the driveway. They turned in from the left which was the same stretch of street you were looking at with no cars on it just one moment earlier.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Danny and Arnold are eating the "nuked" food. You can see the amount of milk Arnold has in his glass changes. He actually has more at the end of the scene.

Vincent: Now I know you're probably used to growing your own vegetables and spearing fish on the lagoon. But here on the mainland, we just nuke it.

More quotes from Twins


Question: Why did Traven lie to Mary-Ann and tell her that Julius died at birth and that Vincent was never born?

Chosen answer: Because the offspring of this experiment was meant to be studied, researched. Mary-Ann showed signs of maternal attachment toward the end of her pregnancy, which the scientists involved felt would hinder the experiment due to her not wanting her baby poked and prodded at all day, every day. So she was told her baby died at birth and she was sent on her way. There was no point even mentioning the second baby since she never knew she was carrying twins in the first place.

Question: There are 2 doctors who don't inform the twins that their mother is alive, but the first one remains a friend and the other is the bad guy. Why the difference?

John Henry Spencer

Chosen answer: Although I wouldn't call one a bad guy, Professor Werner is the the one who raised Julius, and would remain a friend because of this bond. Mary Ann (the twins' mother) however, was told that Julius died at birth and was never told about Vincent. She blames Professor Traven for this (probably since he's the only one around to yell at). Vincent on the other hand was never told his mother died during childbirth and he grew up thinking his mother abandoned him. Until Julius showed up, he never knew he was part of an experiment and he had no knowledge of either doctors and probably no feelings regarding either of them.

Bishop73

Question: How could Mary-Ann not know she was giving birth to Vincent shortly after Julius was born? Wouldn't she have felt another intense pain to indicate she was going into labor a second time? Plus, how would they be able to keep the birth of Vincent a secret from her in the first place?

Chosen answer: She could have been unconscious by that point.
