It Takes Two

Critics Consensus

Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock told us that It Takes Two to make a thing go right, but this unpleasant Olsen twins comedy proves that the opposite can also be true.

Audience Reviews for It Takes Two

  • Jul 05, 2012
    Horrible family film that has nothing good going for it. With a very poor cast of actors, this is one of those films that you watched as a kid, and liked, but years later realized how bad it really was. The lead actresses are horrible, and Mary Kate and Ashley Olson could never act well in the first place. The story is poorly thought out, and the film is packed with predictable clichés and no once of originality to really make this film a lot of fun for the viewer. Director Andy Tennant can't craft a solid and memorable family comedy and the result is a film that falls flat due to a poor cast and story. Add to that, poor directing, and overall an uninteresting idea for a film, and you have a film that is sure to fail. This is an awful film that doesn't work and it is a misfire that is definitely not worth watching. This just suffers from overused ideas that we've seen so many times before, and the Olson twins are simply horrible. They had one hit with the TV show Full house, but afterwards they never should have moved into feature films. This is the result right here, a poorly made film that doesn't belong on the shelf of so many other classic childhood favorites. This film simply doesn't work as effective and memorable family entertainment. Also it's one of those films that haven't stood the test of time as so many other family films have. This is not a film worth seeing, and it is awful in terms of a family film. The films biggest flaw is that it tries to be something it's not, and ends being a pretty boring film and a waste of time in the end.

    The Olsen twins first big movie is actually watchable. It's predictable, and somewhat like The Parent Trap, but kids will like it.
