Shane and Lizzie Dalton (Mary-Kate and Ashley) are estranged sisters who unknowingly enter the same "Reality Game Show" competition for college scholarship money where, among other things, they have to learn to tolerate each other, compete in "Survivor-esque" contests, battle "evil" TV producers and of course, work through boyfriend problems. In the end the girls learn the meaning of family.
All in all, this is definitely one of the best Olsen twins efforts and marks a fitting end to their "pre-adulthood" films and direct-to-video line. While the "Faux-Survivor" bit was a little cheesy at first, the action is top-notch for a "family" film courtesy of all the outrageous "Survivor"-type challenges and the message of family the film shares is just awesome. In a strange but appropriate nod at the end of the film the girls and characters "break character" to acknowledge the twins past accomplishments and a montage of the girls in their films throughout the years make an appropriate end to not only this movie but their "pre-adulthood" career.
THE DVD SPECIAL FEATURES:
Like most Olsen DVDs you've got a stuffed DVD features section, but unfortunately most of it is fluff. Included in the DVD special features are:
1. Behind the Scenes featurette: 7 1/2 minute featurette where the cast and crew (primarily the twins) talk about the movie and their experiences filming it.
2. Trailers: The Multi-million dollar Olsen marketing machine was in full force here!!!Read more ›
"The Challenge was filmed in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. It's about a group of kids
who are in a teen survivor-type game, competing for collage scholarships.
Mary-Kate and Ashley play sisters who do not like each other. Their parents are
divorced and one girl lives with their father in Washington while the other
lives with their mother in Los Angeles. Unfortunately they get put on the same
team with a group of other kids, and Mary-Kate and Ashley are constantly
fighting. They have to learn to work together or they'll blow it for everybody.
Of course they learn to get along with each other by the end of the movie! "It
was a nice twist on the roles Mary-Kate and I usually play," Ashley says. "It
was kind of fun to have a conflict between us." "I really liked the Survovor
aspect of the whole thing," Mary-Kate says. "And there's a cool surprise at the
end," she adds. "But I don't want to give it away. You'll have to see it for
