best Olsen twin movie
21 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My kids thought this was the best movie by the Olsen twins, and so did I. ("Little Rascals" is not really an Olsen twin movie, and we didn't like "It Takes Two" as well.) Its plot is predictable but plausible, with a touch of mystery and suspense. Martin Mull gives a fine performance as the bad guy. The western scenery is excellent: production values seem higher than most made-for-TV movies. I think this is as good as many higher-rated IMDb movies, but it lacks drug or alcohol references, so I guess many pseudo-adults can't appreciate it. One funny part is the way George (Ben Cardinal), a native American / Indian, keeps arriving everywhere via mountain bike before the horses do.
