A Movie Warning: Two of a Kind (1983)

November 20, 2011

janne-anorectic-muppet-megan-fox-band-t-shirtAfter John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John made Grease they became the hottest couple on screen (until Paris Hilton and whoever that green guy was who spent a night in… her.) so they just had to make another movie – no matter how bad the script was.

The result: Two of a Kind.

How bad was it? Take a look at this trailer:

It doesn’t look great but not… too bad either, right? Well that’s because the trailer cleverly hides the plot of the movie. “The Plot” is how God (voiced by Gene Hackman) gives up on humanity and decides to blow it all up to the Devil’s delight – the Devil is played by Oliver Reed. But a bunch of angels, one of them Charles Durning, makes a deal with God that they will find two people that is good enough to change his mind. Just two.

So keep this in mind: a trailer that tries to HIDE actors like Gene Hackman, Oliver Reed, Charles Durning and a plot about God trying to destroy the world… can’t be too good, right? If you ask me: it’s shit to the maximum. Especially when there are scenes wherein Durning and Reed forward-rewind-battles so time goes back and forth so men fall face down into cake and women loses their tops over and over.

When God sees this movie he will kill us all.

    So THAT’s where the whole “I-won’t-do-anything-you-don’t-want-me-to” line came from …

    I have been poking my ears with knitting needles to get this movie out of my head so… I don’t remember. Tell me about it?
