So cute and The whole family can watch

This is a fun movie about twins switched at birth then come together because of a proposed business deal dealing with the town where they were born. Very cute. Lily Tomlinson and Bette Midler are smart, funny and charming. A few mild bad words and some sexual innuendo but our family loves it. Kids are 9 and 11
