I love the movie and I've seen it 4 times in the last 2 days.

It seems more like a movie that they just happen to be in.

The Olsens continue to please their fans with another fun film. Winning London obviously takes place in the UK, where the girls and their Model UN team compete in a UN international competition for high school students. In order to learn about their host country, a very cute, very rich London boy, who just happens to be Mary Kate's love interest, gives the group of American teens a tour of the city.
A most refreshing change occurs in Winning London in that Mary Kate and Ashley are depicted as two very distinct individuals; different hair styles, different clothes, different aspirations, all of which makes us see them as two sisters who look alike, but are clearly different people. This is a very positive alteration, one that I think audiences were ready for. An aspect that remains true Olsens however, is their friendship together.
It was great to showcase some other fine young talent; the friend with the video camera was amazingly good, and Ashley's love interest was indeed a babe. This movie had the feel of Dawson's Creek, but with more style.
Worth the money.

Winning London is an awsome movie! If you've seen Mary-Kate and Ashley's other video Our Lips Are Sealed it is just as good, if not better. Winning London isn't a complete comedy like Our Lips Are Sealed, but is just as good. It's a bit of a drama, but with a twist of comedy on the side. In Winning London, Mary-Kate and Ashley are on a Model U.N. team. They have to compete against people from all around the world. For part of their research, they tour London and go to clubs. In the meantime, they fall in love and learn all what competing is about. If you love Mary-Kate and Ashley, you'll love Winning London. Even if you're not a Mary-Kate and Ashley fan, who knows you might just like it. This movie is for all ages.

This movie is the best. It is about two sisters Riley and Chloe who go to London along with 3 other people from their school and perticipate in the Modal U.N. compoition. This movie is different from all other Mary-Kate and Ashley movies becuase the girls Riley and Chloe are totally different and a lot of times don't get along. In Winning London it is the first Mary-Kate and Ashley movie where they are not perfect and their lives don't depend on lip gloss, they are actully somewhat smart in this movie. Winning London is also a very, very funny movie in many ways! This movie also teaches people that their dreams can come true. You should rent or buy this movie today. One thing is that in every Olsen Twins movie they BOTH have to fall in love with someone, this movie has no exaptions to that fact.

Winning London is a well-done children's movie with some glowing scenes. While the girl-meets-boy theme is, as always in an Olsen twins' movie, included, this movie is not so focused on it.
The main point of the story is this: go to London to win a competition.
The underlying stories that I love are these: a boy growing up and standing up for himself (the Peter Pan aspect), and a girl who learns and grows up (to be less competitive). These things really made the movie for me. A little bit of culture and comedy made me smile, and a somewhat more grown-up theme (than usual) for a twins' movie kept my interest.
While there are very predictable scenes and sometimes annoying parts, the movie is worth seeing.
In the end, the group doesn't so much "win London", but the each character wins a discovery of themselves and a new view on life. In this way, it wasn't the competition that made them grow so much as their experiences.

I think Winnig London is the worst movie ever.Just Because they're 15 years old they think there old enough to do anything.
And what's with all the kissing. Now that they're 15 they want to
be kissing in all their new movies. And I want to say to
MAry-Kate and Ashley to stop with the kissing you guys are only
childs and you guys think you're grown ups but you're not.

Our lips are sealed was a great step forward in making higher quality Olsen movies, Winning London is another step ahead! When I read about Winning London at first, I expected a Passport to Paris clone, thank goodness I was wrong! The movie doesn't have the feeling of an Olsen movie, and that's a very good thing. Mary-Kate and Ashley must be in it, but their presence should not overshadow all and everything else. Also the words "Model UN" really confused me, I was thinking of fashion modeling all the time, not diplomacy (I must admit that I never could lay the link between fashion and the UN though)! The story of the movie is quite boring, except for the James Bond like scenes, where Riley and Brian are going to try to rescue the "hostages" (it's all a setup - I like the guy who plays Iraq! UK: "Who needs nukes anyway?" Iraq: "We do!"). Although the story is a bit boring, there IS a story line (unlike movies as Passport to Paris). The plot line is even quite advanced for an Olsen movie, although it didn't really appeal to me. I prefer a bit more action, a bit more things to see, and a bit less talk. That's probably why I really liked the James Bond scene, shame it wasn't a bit longer. The movie appeared very mature, except for the scene in which Chloe and Riley tried to sneak into a meeting as guys was so totally fake! It instantly reduced the level of the movie. That scene would have been nice in a Mary-Kate and Ashley movie when they were 8, but not anymore. There were many good parts in the movie to compensate this though. The characters of Mary-Kate and Ashley were not so close-goodie-best-friends-for-life as they usually are, and they got a lot of scenes separately.Read more ›
