Critic Reviews

Writer Deborah Dean Davis and director Andy Tennant are fully aware of the absolute predictability of their material and therefore make the getting to an inevitable ending as much fun as possible.
It seems only fitting that the flavorless Guttenberg would land in this smooth tapioca concoction, but Alley deserves better.
The movie is harmless and fitfully amusing.
The Olsens' precociousness and sitcom-style mugging grate at first, but I found myself warming to their movie in its last half - thanks mostly to Alley, a crackerjack physical comic who's incapable of a flat or colorless note.
USA Today
A rote variation on Mark Twain's The Prince and the Pauper that is marginally salvaged by those spunky Olsen twins from ABC's Full House. [17 Nov 1995]
The adorable overacting of the twins [Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen] make this otherwise dopey movie watchable.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
The movie is a competent formula kid flick stuffed to the dimples with movie deja vu, a sop to those Hollywood-bashing politicians who want old-fashioned family values on their celluloid. [17 Nov 1995]
This modern-day hybrid of "The Prince and the Pauper" and "The Parent Trap" is a slickly contrived showcase for the professionally cute Olsen Twins, late of TV's Full House.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
The premise clicks, the stars couldn't be more likable, and It Takes Two is as cute and imaginatively directed a family movie as we've had all year. [17 Nov 1995]
Staggeringly laboured though this premise may be, it also has the potential for some lightweight farce to pass the time.
