Why we love Mary-Kate and Ashley’s ”It Takes Two”
PREDICAMENT Twins separated at birth — one in an orphanage, the other a mansion — meet by accident. À la ”The Parent Trap,” the girls switch places to stop Dad from marrying his shrewish fiancée.
MARY-KATE PLAYS Amanda Lemmon, a tomboy who’s just fine being an orphan, thank you very much
ASHLEY PLAYS Alyssa Callaway, the prissy daughter of tycoon Roger (Steve Guttenberg — remember him?)
FASHION STATEMENT Amanda works the overalls-and-baseball-cap look; Alyssa’s wardrobe consists mostly of garments covered in bows.
WHY WE LOVE IT In addition to the great chemistry among cast members (including Kirstie Alley), this charming rags-to-riches tale has a happy ending — and we’re not just talking about the $19.5 million the film raked in.
