Goofs

Early in the bus ride to the big city, Travis speaks to the bus driver, then sits down and talks to his seat-mate. In a brief shot towards the front of the bus, the bus' windshield is seen to be solid bright green, indicating a missing rear projection effect that should have shown the road the bus was traveling.

Another Funny Comedy from the 80's
1 May 2016 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Texas, the naive Travis Rogers (George Newbern) quits his job to marry his beloved Stephanie "Stephi" Lawrence (Leslie Hope) and work with his father-in-law. However he decides to buy a car with his US$ 5,000.00 savings in Dallas before the wedding. He goes to a car dealer and the sexy saleswoman Jonni Tigersmith (Kimberly Foster) convinces him to buy an expensive fully-loaded Lamborghini-type car after the test drive. But soon Travis finds that his car is a piece of junk. When Jonni sees the car, she has an argument with her crooked boss since it is not the test drive car and is fired together with the mechanic. She meets Travis and they have one night stand. They team up with the mechanic and decide to retrieve the car he bought. Meanwhile Stephi is waiting for travel for the rehearsals and finally for the wedding. Will Travis marry Stephi or stay with Jonni?

"It Takes Two" is another funny comedy from the 80's. The misadventures of Travis with his brand-new car and the situation of Stephi alone in the rehearsals are funny and Kimberly Foster is sexy and gorgeous. The conclusion is conventional but adequate for Travis' behavior. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Com Qual das Duas?" ("With Which One of the Two?")
