Has anyone ever seen this one? I know it's not on DVD, but it has been broadcast on MGM HD recently, although I don't have the channel. I'd love to find a torrent of it to download.

Not to be confused with the cutesy Olsen twins movie of the same title from the '90s, this movie is about a guy, Travis, who is about to be married to the daughter of a rich oil baron or something. He just bought a new, expensive sports car (Lamborghini Countach, although I'm convinced the actual movie car is just a kit car) and has traveled to pick it up. The car turns out to be a rolling hunk of junk. I remember a scene where the mechanic pulls a part off the engine and says it came from a '57 Chevy. All sorts of chaos and explosions ensue and the movie ends with the car sitting outside a roadside motel while Travis and the girl are inside.

I really enjoyed George Newbern in "Adventures In Babysitting" and he was entertaining in "It Takes Two", but overall it not a movie that I would watch over and over. If you're a George Newbern fan you might want to check
it out though.

George Newbern was pretty hot in the 80's. Loved him in "Adventures in Babysitting!" Maybe I should check it out.

Yep. She played Cookie, the hot girlfriend of the bad guy.

I watched It Takes Two yesterday and it was pretty good.
George Newbern was good, Leslie Hope was ok and Kimberly Foster... well let´s just say that she was superhot [Cool]

 -

Always liked Barry Corbin and he was solid once again.

I loved the crazy dream sequences, cool Dallas city lights
and i loved that Lamborghini.

 -

You can also hear some cool music like Joe Satriani and The Power Station on the soundtrack.

I always liked this movie!

George Newborn is such a doofass but you gotta love him in this one?! (he was a hunk in Adventures in Babysitting)

The 80's car dealership and Kimberley Foster's outfits are so 80's.

Muff, if you haven't already seen it you should check out 'Double Switch'. It's a Disney TV movie that stars Newborn and Elizabeth Shue (dating maybe?)
