Switched-at-birth farce Big Business concerns a pair of twins who get mixed up in a rural maternity ward. Forty years later, one pair, Rose and Sadie (Lily Tomlin and Bette Midler) are now the executives of their father’s conglomerate Moramax. When the company plans to divest its holdings in the West Virginia furniture maker Hollowmade, their country counterparts Rose and Sadie (also Tomlin and Midler) head to New York to protest the sale and save their town, resulting in a delirious romp of mistaken identities. Working from a script that Jane Wagner finessed in its final stages, Tomlin and Midler pivot nimbly between their dual roles, comic foils to each other and themselves.
