George Marshall was slated to direct "Twice Two" and did some pre-production work on the film. But Roach studio management abruptly fired him for falling behind schedule on the previous Laurel & Hardy short, "Towed in a Hole" (1932). Marshall was replaced by L&H stalwart James Parrott, whose drinking and other personal issues were making him unreliable; he never directed the team again. See more »

Not their greatest but still a nice Laurel & Hardy comical short.
"Twice Two" isn't among the most consistent or hilarious Laurel & Hardy shorts but it still is fun and good enough to watch.
The boys in drag isn't exactly the greatest style of humor. The concept even got a bit tiresome after a while in the movie. The movie goes on for a bit too long with its gags and isn't the best paced Laurel & Hardy short.
Yet the movie is filled with some truly great and well timed moments, that without doubt will make you laugh.
A fun movie but with a far too long stretched out concept and storyline.
