YMMV: Twins

  • Fridge Brilliance - The idea to mix sperm to get the perfect man is, of course, ridiculous. Of course, since one of their fathers looks a lot like Julius, you have to wonder if Traven didn't add a bit of his own "genetic material", resulting in Vince, making them, technically twin half-brothers, which is not unheard of.
    • It was probably supposed to be an early genetic engineering experiment, attempting to blend the genetics of the various men into a single batch of sperm, rather than just dumping a bunch of sperm samples in one vat. This was before Genetic Engineering is the New Nuke, however, and they simply didn't bother to explain it, either figuring the audience would get it anyway or wouldn't understand even if it was explained.
    • Mixing sperm together doesn't somehow cause genes to get swapped, but the resulting chemical warfare among the sperm competing for fertilization does bias the child toward being more effective at reproducing.
  • Ho Yay / Incest Subtext / Twincest - Believe it or not. Julius is a bit overly loving toward Vincent, Vincent doesn't mind after the first five minutes, the two get along almost perfectly, dance together with no though, hug constantly...
  • Hilarious in Hindsight - Julius and Vince's conversation while posing in their brand-new matching clothes. Guess which "icy" character Arnold ended up playing:
    Julius: Do I look cool now?
    Vince: Mr. Ice!
  • Tear Jerker - The Twins are reunited with their mother.
    • The movie actually has a fair few of them, as much like Junior both Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny Devito apparently decided to act the shit out of the movie despite its silly premise.
