Julius and Vincent Benedict are fraternal twins; the results of a secret experiment carried out at a genetics laboratory to produce the perfect child, using sperm donated by six different fathers. The mother was told that the children died at birth, while the children were informed once old enough that their mother died in childbirth. The program was a success but was shut down, [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid due to one twin inheriting the "desirable traits", and the other being the "genetic trash"]]: Julius is strong, handsome, kind and intelligent, while Vincent is, well, [[TypeCasting Danny [=DeVito=]]].

* BadassAdorable: Julius is an interesting example; he is adorable not because of his appearance, but because of his sweet, innocent and kind-hearted personality.

News broke in Summer 2013 that a sequel, called.. What else, ''Triplets'', is apparently going into production soon with Creator/EddieMurphy as the third brother. That sound you can hear is the entire world doing a collective ''[[FlatWhat "What?"]]''.

* NatureVsNurture: Because of the unexpected birth of twins, the experiment was ended and the mother/children split up. Julius ended up with one of the scientists who genuinely raised the boy to be a genius bodybuilder ("the Good") in an isolated environment void of cultural distractions. Vincent was left abandoned to an orphanage, without any mentor or guidance to grow up, and learned to cheat and lie his way through life ("the Bad") while living a hedonistic unhealthy lifestyle. The argument would be how much did genetics already establish which twin was Good or Bad, and how much did they way they grew up? Lampshaded by Julius, who realizes he had the more coddled childhood and condemns Dr. Traven for pre-judging Vincent to a harsher life.
-->I was taken to a beautiful island, protected, educated, loved, given every opportunity to grow, to dream, to create. But you had none of that. You had ''nobody.'' Nobody to love you, nobody to trust you, nobody to encourage you. All life taught you was that the only person you could count on was yourself.

* WhateverHappenedToTheMouse: We never find out if the loan sharks are still after Vincent. Though after getting the reward money, he likely paid them off, or they were arrested at the bar.

* VirginShaming: Julius is revealed to be a virgin, unsurprisingly since he's spent his whole life on a desert island with no women around, and is embarrassed when Vincent teases him about it.

* KavorkaMan: Vincent. Prior to meeting Julius, he doesn't have many redeeming features but nevertheless seems to have had no trouble attracting women.
