Storyline

Nolie has just turned twenty-one but is mentally challenged, and acts more like eight. While claiming that she only wants to help him, his "smother" actually likes things that way. One day Nolie visits his beloved grandfather in a rest home and is horrified at how the old man has deteriorated, vegetating in his wheelchair. He realizes that this is partly due to the medication the nurses are giving him. Nolie decides that he must rehabilitate Grandpa himself, since no one else cares. Furthermore, he and Grandpa must keep their project a secret. It's a job for a man, and time for Nolie to become one. Written by Paul Emmons <pemmons@wcupa.edu>

Many probably passed this by, but shouldn't
15 October 2012 | by tearianamcfarlandSee all my reviews

If I could give this a 15 out of 10 I would. It is that good. As other reviewers stated all the actors did an incredible amazing job. Sadly the other film by the same name is what comes up when you "Google" "Two of a Kind," that film in my opinion was "ok" maybe a 6 out of 10?

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.
