Product Description


This variation on The Parent Trap stars the Olsen twins as look-alikes who swap lives in order to find fresh solutions to problems with their adult caretakers. Directed by Andy Tennant (Ever After), the film has some liveliness largely thanks to the comic abilities of the adult stars. But the natural charms of the Olsens, who are better than cynics give them credit, are not to be overlooked. A nice family movie. --Tom Keogh

Even though i am NOT one for remakes.And this is a remake of the
classic Disney movie "The Parent Trap" but underneath a different name.This is one remake that is even better the original.The Olsen Twins are these days' Shirley Temple.Both on screen and the way they conduct themselves.We have gotten to meet them and trust me they are the same in real life.We been fans of the TwinS since fuLL house days.I only have to warn parents of one thing in this movie that Mary-Kate does suprise the viewer with the use of a somewhat "dirty word".I would tell you what it is but it would most likely not get posted.Its P*SSED.Ok from that you can tell.
If you don't want your kids hearing that then stay away.But remember they hear that and worse then that in school and can't stop them from going to school.But most importantly the TwinS deliver in this movie.We have been blessed now with 18 years of their sweetness and talent.We wish them all the best they deserve all that they got.And when child stars turn out as they did that is more then an achievement.Don't miss this movie.And as for the Twins this is their best and that is saying a lot.Sit back relax and laugh and enjoy and double your viewing pleasure with the Olsen TwinS : Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen......

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun family movie April 9 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Amanda lives in an orphanage where her only real friend is her social worker. Alyssa is the only child of a multi-millionaire. But one summer, they meet by accident and hatch a daring plan. They switch places and try to get Amanda's social worker and Alyssa's dad to fall in love before he marries an awful woman. But when the fiancée figures out what's going on, can the girls pull it off?
Granted, this movie is a variation of The Parent Trap. And while there were a few unexpected twists, there really isn't anything new to the plot. But the movie is incredibly fun. The first time I saw it I laughed so hard it hurt, and I was in college at the time. The movie creates humor from the premise, sometimes setting up jokes well ahead of the punch line. The Olsens do a good job with the acting. It's fun watching them basically play each other. The adults do a fabulous job with their rolls, making it easy to get lost in this world.
I have shared this movie with many friends since I first saw it, and they all enjoyed it. I highly recommend this entertaining film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, fun, fun! Nov. 23 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This is my favorite Olsen Twins movie, and I'm an adult who can honestly say she enjoys it. I grew up on Full House and have always loved watching those two. They've done a lot of movies, and this one is my favorite. Supported by the charming Steve Guttenberg, the extremely funny Kirstie Alley, and a supporting cast that includes Philip Bosco as the sly and smart butler and Jane Sibbett as Clarice, the snooty, evil-plotting fiance of Guttenberg's character, this movie is sure to please any fan of Mary-Kate and Ashley. So the story goes kind of like this: look-alikes Amanda and Alyssa (Mary-Kate and Ashley, respectively) literally bump into each other while at a summer camp (that Amanda's a camper at and that Alyssa's extremely rich father happens to own). Once the two realize how closely they resemble each other, they hatch a plan to get Alyssa's single dad and Amanda's pretty caseworker romantically involved. Will they succeed, amidst foodfights, canoes falling over, and the interference of the conniving Clarice? This is a fun movie from beginning to end, with lots of visual treats (Andy Tennant Films--Fools Rush In, Ever After, etc.--always seem to have beautiful scenery), funny dialogue, and fantastic characters. There's exactly one slightly objectionable word (spoken by one of the Olsens), but I think only very conservative parents will have a problem with it. This movie is part Parent Trap, part Three Men And A Little Lady, and . . . basically just a really cute movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars always loved it Oct. 13 2002

Format:VHS Tape
Truly one of Mary-Kate and Ashley's best movies. They had a great supportive cast and a very good plot in this variation of "The Parent Trap" with a twist. Rough-and-tumble orphan Amanda Lemmon (Mary-Kate) and wealthy yet lonely Alyssa Callaway (Ashley) are identical strangers who literally bump into each other, have some fun switching places, and then move into a scheme to bring together Alyssa's single father (Steve Guttenberg) and Amanda's single social worker (Kirstie Alley). But first, they have to find a way to get rid of Clarice (played to perfection by Jane Sibbett), your typical "witchlike villain" who plans to marry Alyssa's father and send Alyssa away. It's a fun movie with a simple plot, many funny moments and enjoyable performances from the Olsens. Kirstie Alley and Steve Guttenberg turn in great performances as well. If you are a fan of the Olsens, you won't want to miss this one

4.0 out of 5 stars Charming! Nov. 10 2003
I'm not a hardcore Mary-Kate and Ashley fan but I'm not one of their haters and I actually like them, have liked them ever since Full House. I think It Takes Two is a sweet charming movie and I agree that it's like The Parent Trap meets The Prince and the Pauper and I'm surprised that not many people seem to have noticed The Prince and the Pauper angle of this story. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen were pretty good and Steve Guttenberg and Kirstie Alley were good too and fans of the NBC sitcom friends will notice Jane Sibbet as Steve Guttenberg's nasty fiance. She plays Ross's first ex-wife on Friends. I would like for me and my family to have this charmer on DVD but Amazon doesn't list what the aspect ratio is and from experience I have found that usually means the DVD is edited into a pan and scanned format and I would rather have widescreen.

OK, OK, I'm becoming a child again but this is a fun family movie and is a far cry from the other MK and A movies I've had the misfortune to view, but this is alright.

The Movie isn't half bad. Kids will like it, but adults might be annoyed. To be perfectly honest, Ashley's acting is forced and very annoying at times; she sounds like she's trying... Read more
