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
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.

As a child, I loved this movie, Olsen twins, and HALLOWEEN. Now that I'm older, I still do! The twins star as Lynn and Kelly. Their parents are about to lose their house. They ask Aunt Agatha for a loan, but because she's an evil witch, she doesn't. During that time, the twins meet a grave digger who tells them about the Moonstone, which gives Agatha her power. Agatha had a nice, sweet twin sister named Sophia, who is trapped in a mirror in the attic. On HALLOWEEN the next day, The twins try to find the witches' gathering, get the Moonstone, and save their sweet aunt by midnight with the help of Mr. N, Oscar the Clown, and the grave digger. If you love the Olsen twins, witches, and HALLOWEEN, you'll love DOUBLE, DOUBLE, TOIL AND TROUBLE!!!
This movie totally made my childhood Halloween! Even now when I watch
it I think its a bit lame but its still a sweet movie.
The acting is alright, but in a movie where the stars are under 10, what else can be expected? Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are adorable as the girls in this movie. Despite their age their acting is as good as any 20-something star on a daytime drama and no one really complains about their acting.
Some scenes still make me laugh with my sister when we watch it, and we always rent it for tradition on Halloween. Seriously, it doesn't deserve the bad reviews. Its a sweet kids movie, if you want intensity and drama go watch something else.
If you're a fan of Mary-Kate and Ashley, you'll love this movie. If you're not a fan, you may think it's not such a great movie, but think twice: there's more to Double, Double, Toil and Trouble than just the Olsen Twins! The movie begins with money problems for the parents of Lynn (Ashley Olsen) and Kelly Farmer (Mary-Kate Olsen). Their only hope is a loan from old Aunt Agatha, but she's very mean. While their parents are visiting Agatha, the girls hear about witches and the moonstone. Aunt Agatha is said to be a witch who locked her twin sister, aunt Sophie, into a mirror, using the moonstone. Of course, Lynn and Kelly decide they want to find it! What's next, is a fun movie, taking place on Halloween, full of adventure for the girls, new friends and magic as well. The storyline may seem a bit childish sometimes, but in the end you'll discover that the girls are right: friends are more important than money. So, in conclusion: a movie Olsenfans will love, but non-Olsenfans should definitely give it a chance!
This is a GREAT movie. Anyone who has a bad word to say about it is a total moron. That's all there is to it. Watch it, it's good. The entire cast makes this movie wonderful. Cloris Leachman is very convincing as both Aunt Agatha and Sofia. It's hard to believe this movie is already 10 years old!
