That can’t-eat, can’t-sleep, reach-for-the-stars, over- the-fence, World Series kind of stuff! It Takes Two, the beloved Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen movie, hit theaters in 1995, and fans are still nostalgic for the film decades later.
The movie has become even more beloved in the wake of Kirstie Alley’s death in December 2022. Alley — who portrayed social worker Diane Barrows and Amanda Lemmon’s (Mary-Kate) parental figure in the fan-favorite film — died in early December 2022 at age 71 after a short battle with colon cancer. Her It Takes Two costar Steve Guttenberg — who played Diane’s love interest and Alyssa Callaway’s (Ashley) father, Roger Callaway, paid tribute to Alley in a poignant post on social media, recalling their days on set together.
The movie was a clear spin on the iconic story of the Prince and the Pauper, as well as The Parent Trap. (The original Parent Trap was released in 1961, while Lindsay Lohan’s version came out three years after It Takes Two.)
Nearly 20 years after the release of the ‘90s classic, Guttenberg gushed about working with the Olsen twins in a 2014 interview with HuffPost Live.
“They were adorable. They came to my house one time for a little pool party. They were great kids,” he recalled, adding that he still saw them “once in a while.”
