>FOR LAUGHS: TWINS As theoretical identical siblings, Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger are marvels of genetic misengineering in this obvious but often funny comedy of mismatches directed by Ivan (Ghostbuslers) Reitman. (MCA)

FOR TEARS: CRY IN THE DARK Meryl Streep movingly portrays an Australian woman falsely convicted of murdering her infant daughter. The grueling drama, directed by the versatile Fred [Roxanne] Schepisi, is based on a real incident in which it was eventually established that the child was, as the mother insisted, carried off by a wild dog. (Warner)
