Product Description

New York Minute (DVD) (WS)

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen take on the Big Apple in this action-adventure comedy. On the way to a crucial college interview, disciplined, tidy Jane, 17, is thwarted by her free-spirited, impulsive, untidy sister Roxy, 17, prompting an unfortunate series of mishaps that almost ruin everything ... and that reveal how much can happen in a New York Minute.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen play good girl/bad girl sisters who suddenly find themselves on a high-speed chase escaping crooks, attracting hunks, and wreaking havoc in this lightweight comedy set in the Big Apple. Ashley plays high school scholar Jane Ryan, an overachiever with her sights set on winning a college scholarship competition. Mary-Kate plays her sister, Roxy, a rebellious teen truant who would rather be a rock star than a student. Since their mother's death, the sisters' relationship has been strained. Now their worlds collide when a day in Manhattan forces Jane and Roxy to join forces, overcoming their differences to battle an international smuggling ring while trying to make it in time for Jane's competition. While the script is predictably bland, viewers will enjoy the comedic strengths of Eugene Levy (Serendipity, American Pie) as Roxy's ubiquitous truant officer. Though the twins manage some decent slapstick, their sensuality, sexual innuendo, and suggestive disrobing is disappointing. DVD bonus features include some hilarious bloopers and alternate endings. (Ages 10 and older) --Lynn Gibson

If you are not a true, long-time fan of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, you really don't have any reason to watch this movie. "New York Minute" is for those who have grown up alongside Mary-Kate and Ashley and will enjoy seeing them in a movie that, yes, illustrates how much they have grown over the years. Anyone else will laugh, sneer, and tear it to shreds, but fans will respect it for what it is: a fun, lighthearted comedy. Personally, I went to see it the day it was released, and I loved it. I think a lot of people just looked at how highly publicized this film was and expected it to be something off the charts--the Olsen twins' explosion into theatrical production and adulthood. I'll admit that when I saw how much it was being promoted and how much time and work the Olsens were putting into it, I thought it was going to be a very successful film with a high public response. While it wasn't anything like that, it certainly showed a nice amount of improvements from the girls; it was a good plot, impressive acting, and highly entertaining. Compare this with some of their home videos like "Getting There" and "When In Rome," and you just might appreciate this movie a little more. I think Mary-Kate and Ashley did a great job; they showed their potential for comedy and proved that once they take the spotlight off them a little bit and focus more on the other aspects of the story, their film is greatly strengthened.
It's a real shame that "New York Minutes" fared so poorly at the box office; I imagine it was a real blow for the girls, but they'll get through it. They'll move on.

Despite all the bad reviews here, I decided to check this out for myself. I love the Olsen twins. I saw this movie twice before I took it back to the video store. It was interesting and I even laughed on a few parts. I thought it was an hour and 25 minutes well spent. I even got some entertainment from the DVD extras. I'm an older person, so not only younger people can obtain enjoyment from this movie. If you aren't a fan of the twins, then of course you probably won't like this since the movie centers around them. But if you are, hang on and enjoy the ride. It's worth seeing. I will be adding this to my DVD collection soon.

Something must have appealed to me about NEW YORK MINUTE for me to add it to my TiVo list. As someone who managed to miss all of the previous efforts by the twins it wasn't an attempt to capture any nostaligic feeling. It wasn't also based on anything related to the story - teens get mixed up in series of mishaps in big city has been done many times before, such as Elizabeth Shue's ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING. You know what I think it was, most possibly a clip of two totally hot looking blonde actresses (let's face it they are) and the chemistry and comic timing they seem to have together.

No, high-class art NEW YORK MINUTE is not. It's not the funniest movie out either. But what is lacks in what some perceive as it flaws it makes up for with good natured fun. Yes, this is a fun movie. It's fun to see the two go from one misadventure to another initially with a mutual contempt that becomes a realization on the importance of family and family ties.

The movie features Jane Ryan (Ashley Olsen), a straight-A uptight Long island high school student who organizes her entire life around her day planner. She's driven and ambitious and determined to win a scholarship to go study at Oxford in England. She has her speech/pitch ready to be delivered in New York and seems as preapred as anyone could be. But fate has a cruel twist in store for her. Enter her sister Roxy (played by Mary-Kate Olsen), she's about as different from Jane as possible. Roxy is with a rock-band and acts with spontaneity that Jane would find scary. She also has made a habit of playing truant, something that has brought her to the attantion of Nassau Co. truancy officer Max Lomax (played by comic genius Eugene Levy.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen return to the big screen for a fun romp through New York with (among others) Eugene "Jim's Dad" Levy.
THE STORY
Jane Ryan (Ashley) is a model student (...). Roxy Ryan (Mary-Kate) is the metal loving slacker noted and wanted as the most notorious truant in all of Nassau County. It's the biggest day of both girl's lives as Jane is scheduled to make a presentation before the Oxford Scholarship committee and Roxy's band can finally get their big break by taking their demo tape to a big music producer. Just two major problems: Truant Officer Lamox (Levy) is hot on Roxy's trail and the girls can tangled in a web with a notorious Chinatown music and movie piracy ring. Oh, and of course, it wouldn't be an Olsen Twins film if there weren't some cute boys involved.
THE COOL STUFF
Like all Olsen flicks you've got a pretty decent plot and, as is usually the case, the central theme of "family is most important" rings true loud and clear. Eugene Levy's "tongue-in-cheek" wannabe cop schtick was equally hilarious and produced some of the film's best scenes. All in all, it was a film flick.
BEST SCENES
1. Mosh style crowd surfing at the concert. Awesome bit
2. "Sisters in the crowd" after Jane and Roxy's fight - really touching
3. The hotel scene
4. Anything with Eugene Levy
THE VERDICT
Well, it's been about 3 weeks and this film is pretty much OUT of the theaters so it hasn't done all that great, BUT if you're an Olsen fan and you like family films you can't go wrong with New York Minute as it's more of the Olsen's you've come to expect and love.
Highly Recommended
