Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen star in their latest feature film, New York Minute by Warner Brothers. This teen movie also stars Eugene Levy, Andie Richter and Jared Padelecki.

What can you do in a New York Minute? More than you could ever imagine. But, thanks to the Olsen twins, you can live vicariously through them as they rendezvous in the Big Apple - meeting cute boys, getting chased by international theives and they even have time for a manicure! Check out whether Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's newest flick, New York Minute is worth your time.

New York Minute Mania

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen star in New York Minute as Jane and Roxy Ryan, twins who couldn't be more different. Roxy is a rebel who plays in a rock n' roll band (managed by the one and only Jack Osbourne) and skips school constantly, while Jane is a straight A student on her way to a scholarship at the prestigious Oxford University. They really can't stand being around one another but circumstance lands them lost in New York City together being chased by theives and a truancy officer (someone who chases down kids who skip school) who's a little too serious about his job. Jane is about to miss her opportunity to win her scholarship, so the girls band together to get themselves out of these sticky situations.

New York Minute Marvelous Moments

It's understandable to be a bit skeptical about the merits of an Olsen twin movie. But, whether you've been a fan since their Full House beginnings or not, (by the way, Full House dad, Bob Saget, has a guest appearance in New York Minute), you should really think about checking this movie out. The girls really work great together - go figure. There are a ton of awesome characters that the twins get to interact with, like Eugene Levy (the dad from American Pie), Andie Richter (used to be Conan O'Brian's right-hand man), former SNL funnyman, Darrel Hammond and even Gilmore Girls' cutie, Jared Padalecki. Yup, there's never a dull moment in this flick, with the twins making their way through the sewer, Big Shirl's House of Bling and they even find themselves crowd surfing at a Simple Plan video shoot. Pretty sweet.

New York Minute Meltdowns

You know what? There isn't one bad thing to say about New York Minute. It's supposed to be a light-hearted, adventure flick and that's exactly what you get. Comedy, romance and even a little bit of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen butt-kicking action (who knew those two had it in them?).


New York Minute DVD Features

With the New York Minute DVD you get to check out not just one, but two, alternate endings, a ton of funny bloopers and some behind-the-scenes footage with Mary-Kate and Ashley. The best feature on the DVD is titled, In a New York Minute and has interviews with a bunch of the stars, and really goes in-depth into the making of the movie. To top it all off, there's a great slide show that you get to check out. The DVD is definitely something that belongs in any movie collection, whether you're a loyal Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen fan or not.

New York Minute Bottom Line

Round up your pals and catch a showing of New York Minute ASAP if you're looking for a fun flick to laugh at. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have definitely made a film worth adding to your collection - not exactly something you could say about their previous movie attempts.
