Notebook Reviews: TWO MUCH

3 out of 5 stars

Fernando Trueba – 1996.

Fernando Trueba’s Two Much is a fun romantic comedy with a great starring role from Antonio Banderas. Melanie Griffith and Daryl Hannah co-star in this energetic farce which sees Banderas caught-up in a lie with two women, which leads to him pretending to be identical twin brothers. 

Trueba’s film features some well executed comedy set pieces – the best being where Banderas has to run from bathroom to bathroom. As good as it is – Two Much will always be known as the movie where Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith met and fell in love. 

It’s not high art (pun intended) but Two Much delivers on the entertainment front.
