Hmmmm...
15 April 2001 | by (Palmerston North, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

The Olsen twins are at it again - this time though, they're quite a bit younger (made when Full House was still being aired) - about six - yet still manage to put in okay performances despite their young age.

Here the play sisters (*twin* sisters, even!) who run away from their parents whilst trick-or-treating to help their Aunt Sophia, who is trapped inside a mirror thanks to Sophia's twin sister (who happens to be a witch).

Along the way they meet up with Mr. N(Meshach Taylor) and Oscar(Phil Fondacaro) who come along for the ride in hopes of setting their Aunt Sophia free.

Kids seem to like it, Mary-Kate and Ashley would've been complaining and amusing one-liners throughout to keep adults from falling asleep.
