Double the FunIt Takes Two
Reviewed by HANNA ERNST
Nine-year-old Amanda Limings from the orphan camp across the lake has just wrung the doorbell of the Callaway house. Nine-year-old Alysa Callaway has just run away from the Callaway house, because her dad is getting married to snotty Clarice Kennsington. What do these two characters have in common? They're identical strangers.
In the movie It Takes Two Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen star in a fun funny family film. (I bet you can't say that three times fast! Hmmm. Or should I say two?) Mary-Kate plays a tough Tom-girl orphan named Amanda Limings. Ashley plays a rich, talented, pianoist named Alyssa Callaway whose mother died giving birth. Kirstie Alley plays a case worker named Diane Barrows who works for the East Side Children's Home. Steve Guttenburg plays Lays Callaways loving father, Roger Callaway. And Jane Sibbet plays Roper's snobby fiancee, Clarice Kensington. It Takes Two was directed by Andy Tennant.
It Takes Two is an interesting movie. In a way It Takes Two is like The Prince and the Pauper. The plot of the movie is about two identical strangers who try to get Diane Barrows and Roger Callaway to get married before Roger gets married to Clarice Kensington. Can they do it in time? Find out when you see the movie.
One of the reasons I liked this movie is because I'm a big Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen fan because they have the same birth day as me (Friday, June 13, 1986.) When you're watching this movie you really should listen to how the music explains what the mood of the movie. When it's tense the music is tense.
I recommend this movie for kids and adults because it's a great movie to watch with your whole family. Even with the pets!
