Awful!
12 December 2002 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

This is quite an awful little film. It is slow-paced, stiff-acted and boring. Of course, considering the main cast are two twin eight year olds, that comes as no surprise.

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen got fame from "Full House," an emotionally controlling and contrived television show. I always thought the "little kid" they had on the show was a bad actress(es). Now, they have spun off countless "mystery films" and cheap little straight-too-video movies.

I am surprised anyone thought these little girls had talent, but then again, everyone thought Macauley Culkin was great, so everybody will probably think these twins are the best ever!

1/5 stars --
