Really bad comedy
3 July 2014 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

From what the IMDb reveals, "It Takes Two" was pretty much thrown away during its scant theatrical release despite being a major studio production. If you ask me, it shouldn't have been released at all. Actually, it shouldn't even have been made. I've tried to think of at least one point of merit to be found, but I can't think of anything nice to say about the movie at all. It goes wrong in every way you can think of. None of the characters in the movie is the least bit sympathetic, and with that in mind you can probably understand why there isn't the least bit of chemistry between the two leads. The script is a real mess - although the movie only runs 79 minutes long, there is a ridiculous amount of padding. Maybe if the movie had been funny such problems could have been overlooked, but there's not one laugh to be found. It'll take two minutes watching the movie to realize you're watching a stinker.
