In dual roles,
Laurel & Hardy play themselves
and each other's wives, gathering for a special anniversary dinner. One of
their most original in concept but unfortunately one of their weakest in
execution and comedy content, Twice Two is a misfire attempt to repeat
the formula of Brats.
There are some genuinely funny moments at the
beginning: Hardy's agitated attempts to leave his office in time for the dinner,
Laurel neatly decapitating a bouquet of Hardy's flowers by closing a door on
them; but, thereafter, despite the engaging pantomime of
Laurel & Hardy as
wives, and the four-cornered marital bickering, it soon bogs down into rather
tiresome and repetitious gags.
