Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing around here... It's Theater Thursday
This week's featured movie is, Big Business.
Big Business is about two sets of twins with one of each set being given to the wrong parents. On a trip through West Virginia, the rich Moramax company owners from NYC get a surprise when their baby is born early and it turns out to be twins. At the same time in the hospital, a W.V. couple is giving birth to their set of twins.

When the Sheldon's decide to name their babies Rose (Lilly Tomlin) and Sadie (Bette Midler), the W.V. couple who overhears them likes the names so much they name their children that as well, knowing that they'll never see them again in their lives. What they don't know is that the nurse accidently gave them one each of the wrong children.

Years later, once they've grown up Sadie and Rose of NYC are running the family company and are preparing to sell the WV company that their father acquired when they were born. At the same time the Sadie and Rose of WV are trying to put a stop to those same plans. What it all comes down to is a giant collision in NYC when the WV girls hit the big town and end up staying at the same hotel for the weekend.

This movie is a 1980's classic. If you've never seen it, you'll be sure to get a good laugh out of it.

Not only have I not seen it, but believe it or not, I've never even heard of it!! Granted, I'm not a big movie person (attention span of a flea), but this looks cute. :)
