      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.

      Shaun C Fantastic movie! Loved watching this as a kid. Funny, witty and love. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/26/24 Full Review Alyssa L Definitely similar to Parent Trap, but very fun and lighthearted! A great watch that's full of nostalgia. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/15/24 Full Review Manhein S Great movie for kids! Watched it with my niece and her friend, we enjoyed it very much. It was funny and had a little romantic touch. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/07/24 Full Review Timothy D Adorably cheesy and charming to the max, It Takes Two is a comfortable, feel-good flick. It recals childhood summer joys and endulges the fantasy of attaining rich parents. What more could you want? Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/21/23 Full Review StephenPaul C LOL, the funniest 01 hour: and 41 minutes ever!!!!!!!!!!! Starring the Olsen twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley, and parents Steve Guttenberg and the late Kirstie Alley!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Leonard Klady Variety The film's underlying sentiment is conveyed effectively, if obviously. Aug 3, 2009 Full Review Time Out Alas, the Olsen girls are not immediately heart-warming. Jun 24, 2006 Full Review Stephen Holden New York Times Under the direction of Andy Tennant, the Olsen sisters lay on the icky-poo cuteness with several trowels, often delivering their lines as though they were reciting the alphabet. Rated: 1/5 May 20, 2003 Full Review TV Guide Adorable munchkins or cloying brats? You be the judge. Rated: 2/4 Aug 3, 2009 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Jul 21, 2005 Full Review James Sanford Kalamazoo Gazette To quote one of the characters, 'We mustn't! We mustn't!'
