In contrast, Mia became a CityMouse while Alexandra became a CountryMouse.

** Bette Midler and Lili Tomlin star as two sets of twins: the Midlers come from rich city parents, the Tomlins come from poor country parents. Both families end up with one Midler (Sadie) and one Tomlin (Rose) each. The movie is one part this, one part SeparatedAtBirth, one part [[TheCityVsTheCountry The City Mouse And The Country Mouse]]. Hilarity ensues.
