Two more reasons why TV is better than the movies: The Olsen twins are now big-screen stars. Yet surprisingly, the 9-year-old ex-Full House runts made a canny choice for their debut film, It Takes Two. In this Prince and the Pauper/Parent Trap hybrid, a street orphan (Mary-Kate — or is it Ashley?) and her rich doppelgänger (the other Olsen) switch places to fix up one’s would-be adoptive mom (Kirstie Alley) with the other’s millionaire/widower dad (Steve Guttenberg). It seems only fitting that the flavorless Guttenberg would land in this smooth tapioca concoction, but Alley deserves better.
