Double Trouble: Big Business

Remember when Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin stared in a movie as two sets of twins switched at birth? If you said no, you might be in good company because I couldn't even find a trailer for this film on Youtube...

The plot unfolds something like this: A rich couple from the city are passing through a small town when suddenly the wife, pregnant with twins, goes into labor. At the same time a local couple, also pregnant with twins, are in the same hospital. An elderly nurse mixes up the babies, and no one is ever the wiser. That is, until the country twins suddenly have to stop the city twins from selling off one of their many companies. That's when hilarity ensues. (Or according to Roger Ebert when it should have ensued...)

Fun facts: Aside from finding almost nothing on this movie (outside of it having a convoluted plot) while researching this gem, I did stumble across someone claiming this movie was originally written for Barbra Streisand and Goldie Hawn. But more importantly, I discovered this movie features a very young Seth Green!
