What would “Call Me by Your Name” have looked like had Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito starred in the roles of Oliver and Elio?
Funny or Die made a mashup — titled “Call Me by Your Twins” — of the 1988 comedy film “Twins” starring DeVito and Schwarzenegger with the Oscar-nominated film “Call Me by Your Name.” And it’s amazing.
Michael Stuhlbarg’s beautiful monologue and conversation with Elio (played by Timothee Chalamet in the actual film) made it into the mashup, as did the famous peach and the dancing scene that went viral last year.
Overall, the editing between the two films is fantastic.
“Call Me by Your Name” was directed by Luca Guadagnino based on the book of the same name by Andre Aciman. It starred Chalamet, Armie Hammer, Stuhlbarg and Amira Casar. It was nominated for four Academy Awards this year, and won for Best Adapted Screenplay.
Other awards taken home by the film include the AFI Award for Movie of the Year, the BAFTA Award for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Male Lead at the Independent Spirit Awards.

TheWrap’s Best & Worst 2017: TheWrap reviews editor Alonso Duralde picks out the very best of a very good year
2017 was a strong year for cinema, with achievements that can be measured on many yardsticks: It was the year a Wonder Woman got to rock the seemingly unassailable superhero genre, the year a black sketch comedian became a massively profitable writer-director, and the year when Tiffany Haddish ascended to the comedy cosmos. Corporate filmmaking may continue to choke Hollywood (and a Disney-Fox merger isn't good news in that department), but this was a year when there was always something to recommend, whether it was blasting to the big screen or streaming to a smaller one.
