2¢ Valentines

Sweet Home Alabama and It Takes Two

Melanie Smooter (Reese Witherspoon) is about to get married. The only problem is that she’s still married to her ex-husband Jake (Josh Lucas). Unfortunately for her that means leaving her New York fashionista lifestyle behind for small town hick life in Alabama. Her only goal is to get Jake to finalize their divorce so that she can leave as soon as possible. His plan is to make her miserable. But nothing goes according to plan and their at risk of falling in love again.

I LOVE THIS MOVIE SO MUCH!!! It’s one of my favorites! It’s funny and has one of the BEST kiss scenes EVER!!! Easily one of the best movies to rewatch!

Orphan Amanda (Mary-Kate Olsen) and spoiled rich girl Alyssa (Ashley Olsen) are identical strangers, who after running into each other, concoct a plan to play matchmaker in the hopes of getting Alyssa’s dad and Amanda’s caseworker together before he winds up married to a witchy socialite.

This was one of my first “grownup” movies as a kid. The kind of movie with cursing in it that had mom give a warning that if I started to talk like that I was going to be in trouble. I was a huge Olsen Twin fan growing up and watched everything that I could with them in it. It Takes Two was one of my favorites. It was fun watching it again. I’d forgotten how funny it was! I don’t enjoy it quite as much as I did when I was 8, but I had a good time watching. It’s basically a Parent Trap rip-off plot wise, and a romantic comedy that’s actually funny. Stream it now on HBO Max.
