Storyline

CEO Harrison Stewart treats his family to a holiday on the Bahamas in a Mayan theme luxury resort, with his devoted workaholic executive Ziggy Grayson and his brilliant but shy son Griffen, who is secretly smitten with Madison Stewart. Hearing she has a crush on simpleton beach hunk Chad, Griffen sweetly accepts to be his Cyrano, which actually ends up proving their incompatibility. Meanwhile her twin sister Madison enjoys an affair with sea-life keeper Jordan Landers, but spoiled silver spoon Brianna wants him too and sabotages them. When Jordan is blamed for allegedly fencing stolen antiquities, Griffen and the twins dodge their meanwhile suspicious parents to find and expose the real culprit. Written by KGF Vissers

The cliched of the cliched!
3 June 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

OK, stop me if you've heard this one: two annoyingly superficial prepubescent blonde twins go to a foreign country. There they meet two boys their same age (who are equally cute) and hook up. During all their foreign-adventures (like tasting the food, going wind-surfing, etc) a lame-ass subplot is forming, so at the very end of the movie it completely botches up what little plot had been built upon before.

Oh, wait... That sounds like every Olsen twins movie EVER. "Holiday in the Sun" doesn't disappoint us; it follows the exact same guidelines.

The Olsen twins' goal in life seems to be insulting teenagers everywhere. I have never met anyone that shallow in my life, and I find it terribly offensive to allude that we're like that in any way.

I'd like to tell the Olsen twins that 1) boys are not everything, and (this might be a surprise to you) a vacation CAN be complete without meeting any, 2) We do not wear what you wear, and we honestly don't care that you can afford it, and 3) if you want to make a movie, the first thing you need is some semblance to a plot. Meeting cute guys while some people are stealing antiques is not a plot. Meeting cute guys while some jewel thiefs linger around is also not a plot. Meeting cute guys while staying in a foreign country is not, and will never be under any circumstance, a plot.

"Holiday in the Sun" makes me sad, because it means that the Olsen twins are shoving crap that they say is an "accurate portayal of teenage life" into the public eye. Thus, adults treat teenagers as the stupid, vapid people the OLSEN TWINS are, and not every other person in America.

If you like this movie, then you are either freakishly bored or you are as shallow as they are.

I wonder why ABC Family continues to rerun everything they've done?
