Two Much (film)

Two Much (film)  A struggling art gallery owner in Miami, Art Dodge, works a scam of trying to get widowed spouses of recently-deceased men to pay for paintings the men allegedly purchased.  But he gets into trouble when one of his patsies turns out to be the widow of a purported mob boss, and Art finds himself in the middle of a wacky romantic triangle involving the man’s son and ex-wife.  The wealthy ex-wife, Betty,  announces her intention to marry Art, and he is not turned off by the thought of her money, but he really loves Betty’s sister, Liz, an art instructor.  Since Liz will have nothing to do with this supposed fortune hunter, Art creates a new persona of a long-lost twin brother, Bart, who is free to pursue Liz.  Needless to say, this leads to chaos.  Released on March 15, 1996.  Directed by Fernando Trueba.  A Touchstone Pictures presentation of an Interscope Communications production, in association with Occidental Media.  Stars Antonio Banderas (Art/Bart), Danny Aiello (Gene), Melanie Griffith (Betty), Daryl Hannah (Liz), Eli Wallach (Sheldon Dodge), Joan Cusack (Gloria Fletcher).  118 min.
