Two of a Kind is a 1983 romantic comedy film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. The original music score was composed by Patrick Williams.
The film has Travolta as an inventor and Newton-John as a bank teller. It is up to both criminally-minded individuals to save the Earth from God's destruction.
This film was the pop singer Newton-John's third attempt at a big budget movie, but which turned out to be an even bigger bomb than her previous film, Xanadu. This film also marked the start of a huge downturn in Travolta's movie career, which wouldn't rebound until 1994 with his starring role in Pulp Fiction. This film was the antithesis of Travolta's and Newton-John's previous film together, Grease, one of the biggest box office successes in movie history. The film was salvaged by a platinum soundtrack which yielded three singles for Newton-John:
"Twist of Fate" - No. 5 Pop (her last of 15 Top 10 Pop hits)
"Take a Chance" - No. 3 AC (B-side to "Twist of Fate")
"Livin' in Desperate Times" - No. 31 Pop
The album was further bolstered by the appearance of "Ask the Lonely", a song rock group Journey had initially intended for their multi-platinum 1983 album Frontiers but which was only available on the soundtrack album, and Patti Austin's "It's Gonna Be Special", which wasn't a major pop hit but peaked at #15 on the R&B charts and #5 on the Dance charts in 1984.
It had nominated five Razzie Awards: Worst Actor (John Travolta, also for Staying Alive), Worst Director (John Herzfeld), Worst Screenplay, Worst Actress (Olivia Newton-John) and Worst Picture.
