    • Synopsis
    • Gilbert Chapelle is a middle-aged banker who leads a pretty ordinary life. Wake up, go to work, sit in a cubicle surrounded by hundreds of people in suits, and go home. The highlight of his day is singing along to his ipod in the elevator down to the parking lot. Quite frankly, he would have it no other way. A pen in the wrong spot on his desk can lead to some serious trauma. Overnight, Gilbert’s life goes from ordinary to extraordinary when he accidentally shoots a man in the parking lot. It turns out he has an identical twin brother, Ace, who happens to be a pimp. Gilbert’s only way out of jail is working for the police undercover by taking on his brother’s identity. At first, he’s not too happy about trading in his thick glasses for a huge tattoo and a 70’s style moustache. Bust as he starts to enjoy his pimpin’ lifestyle, the real Ace reappears. Unfortunately, there’s only room for one Ace in this world, and it’s a battle of brother versus brother for Ace’s identity.
