Two of a Kind (1982 TV Movie)
User ReviewsAdd a Review
This is a story about two men on the fringes of American society: an elderly man in a nursing home who is suffering from a deep depression and at the same time, being over medicated; and his mildly retarded grandson, who also happens to be very clever and tough! He cuts through all the B.S. and gets the job done! He is truly a man!
"Two Of A Kind" will remind anyone who has forgotten, in a concrete way, what the power of love and a strong will can accomplish! Lets hope Hollywood starts making more films like this one! And isn't it about time "Two of A Kind" is released on DVD? I think it's very important more people see this subversive film!
As the mother of a son with a similar disability, I especially appreciate Robbie Benson's portrayal of Noel as a warm, loving, incredibly sweet human being. He must have done extensive preparation for this role because he did it exceedingly well. Robbie, if I had the power, I would give you an Emmy for this film.
There is definitely humor, but you have to wait for it. And what Noelie says to Grandpa when he first sees him after a long time of not being allowed to is permanently engraved on my heart, silly I know, but that just the way it is.
So if your looking for amazing, fantastic, incredible storyline and acting, a movie that will stay with you forever, this one is it.
