To be honest this film is quite corny, it has a farily predictable plot as well as a slightly clichéd script.
HOWEVER.It is a formula that, though predictable, works. It is a film that is very very funny. The comic timing of the two principal actresses is excellent, and the supporting cast also provide hearty and comedic performances that add to the general revelry of the film.
There are several hilariously funny scenes in this film, which coupled with the tried and tested 'mistaken identity' plot make 'Big Business' a film to watch over and over again.
Other points to note on this film;
The production is good. It is a classic 80's film - making it fresh and optimistic, even though the plot has be used many a time. The comic acting of Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin is excellent, Tomlin holds her ground very well next to Bette!!!
This film has a 3 star rating because;
-the film is a little predictable
- the script is a little clichéd
