It Takes Two is a 1988 romantic comedy film directed by David Beaird and starring George Newbern, Leslie Hope, and Kimberly Foster. Screenwriters Richard Christian Matheson and Thomas E. Szollosi had previously teamed up to write the 1987 teen comedy Three O'Clock High.

Plot summary[edit]

Travis Rogers (Newbern), on the verge of marriage to Stephi (Hope), takes off for Dallas, where an encounter with a car saleswoman named Jonni Tigersmith (Foster) precipitates a series of comic misadventures.[1]

Reception[edit]

Writing in the Los Angeles Times, Michael Wilmington described It Takes Two as "a modestly budgeted comedy with...a frowzy plot" that nevertheless "has relentless pace and snap, real comic vigor."[1] The Time Out Film Guide calls the film "One of the better movies of hit-and-miss director Beaird".[2]
