The Twins Accidentally Switched at Birth And Sent Home With The Wrong Parents Just the Gist

    • Comedy

FKN WOOPS. Two mothers give birth to twins on the same night at the same hospital. They take those twins home, and each raise what they assume are their non-identical twin boys. But 25 years later, through total chance, the young men discover there is someone who looks exactly like each of them living in the same city. Yep - two sets of twins had been mixed up at the hospital when they were born, and it turns out they had been identical all along, it's just that they were sent home with the wrong brother...
