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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
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
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.
