Product Description

In the 1940s in the small town of Jupiter Hollow, two sets of identical twins are born in the same hospital on the same night. One set to a poor local family and the other to a rich family just passing through. The dizzy nurse on duty accidentally mixes the twins unbeknown to the parents. Our story flashes forward to the 1980s where the mismatched sets of twins are about to cross paths following a big business deal to closedown the Jupiter Hollow factory.

Big Business [1998] [Blu-ray] [US Import] MIDLER AND TOMLIN GURANTEED BIG LAUGHS!

BETTE MIDLER [Outrageous Fortune, Ruthless People and Down and Out In Beverly Hills] and LILY TOMLIN [All of Me and 9 To 5] are the first ladies of laughter. Star in this critically acclaimed box office hit about two sets of identical twins that are mismatched at birth. Forty years later, their paths cross amid the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, and the result is unrestrained pandemonium. New York's opulent Plaza Hotel is the setting for a wildly hilarious, classic case of mistaken identities, split personalities, and double trouble! With the unparalleled comedic talents of Midler and Tomlin, two's company ... four's a riot!

By Fina09
Format:VHS Tape
Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin are great together. They are very funny in this movie and I would highly recamend this movie to all ages from kids to adults. It is about two set's of twins who get seperated at birth because the nurse mixes them up. I think that this movie is a movie that you can watch over and over again because it is so funny!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must see Dec 20 2002
This is one of Bette's best films! Lilly Tomlin is also fantastic. Full of great one liners and facial expressions. I have seen this over a dozen times and purchased the DVD version the day it came out. Don't expect any "extras".

5.0 out of 5 stars The funniest film ever!! Oct. 24 2002
In a word....."brilliant!"
This film is so funny. Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin are fantasic in this and what a bonus, you get two of each!!
The story revolves around two sets of twins accidentally mixed up at birth and their reunion years later when a big corporation start to bully a small town that gets in the way of their new development opportunity.
This idea has been used before but never has it produced so many laughs especially the scene in the women's bathroom.
I definitely recommend this film. It's one I have watched time and time again, and now I've just ordered the DVD, I'll watch it even more!!

No extras on a DVD. Especially a film so loved with a countless cult following. I would like to ask that people not buy this and write or e-mail disney as to why that decision was made, I already have. Maybe some good will come of it. As for the movie, well I of course love it. Isn't that obvious?

5.0 out of 5 stars a hilarious comedy - finally on DVD! Sept. 2 2002
"BIG BUSINESS" is one of the greatest comedies ever made. Boasting full-tilt performances by comic geniuses Lily Tomlin and Bette Midler, it is a fantastic film.
The story concerns two sets of twins who were mixed up at birth; the city super-rich Sadie and Rose Shelton, and Jupiter Hollow country folk Sadie and Rose Ratliff. When the Shelton's company Moramax decides to stripmine Jupiter Hollow, the two Ratliff twins journey to New York in order to attend the annual stockholder's meeting and kick up a big fuss.
All the action takes place at the world-famous Plaza Hotel; the film is a delightful throwback to the screwball comedies of the 30's with the opening and shutting of doors, etc). The cast includes Edward Herrmann, Mary Gross and Fred Ward in fine supporting roles, though the spotlight is always on Lily (Rose Shelton and Rose Ratliff) and Bette (Sadie Shelton and Sadie Ratliff).
Two thumbs up!
The DVD includes a trailer for "Spy Hard". (Single-layer, single-sided disc).

2.0 out of 5 stars DVD Not Worthy of the Movie Aug. 28 2002
I was on a waiting list to get this DVD since I love this film. Disney must have been cheaper than usual when formatting this disk, because it has no special features. Oh I take that back, Disney did manage to hawk their upcoming cheesy straight-to-video cartoons in the previews before the feature. Does that count as a special feature? There are not even director's or actor's commentaries on the soundtrack or any information about the making of the film that fans would have loved to see. The only thing we could hope for would be a special edition possibly when the film turns 20, but don't count on it. Although a disapointment, still better than a VHS.
