Charley Simms: How did you get up here? Sorry, none of my business.
Taylor Hunter: All I wanted was to go to the Olympics. Is that so much to ask. I mean I worked my butt off to get those tickets. I should have gone by myself, but no I had to make it a group trip with my sister and friends. And my luck I got stuck with a group that can do absolutely nothing right!

I'll keep this short
29 December 2002 | by (Cleveland) – See all my reviews

Speaking as a guy who is exactly the same age as these two...... girls.

I must say that this movie is probably the most pointless movie ever done. The jokes have been done before, the plot is wait a sec there was no plot. And the girls as most people would call preps just took that 90 minutes of our time to show off how good they think they look and how funny and witty they think they are.

To tell you the truth at one time a long long time ago I though the twins did have some sort of hot appeal but after watching them do the same thing over and over and over and over and over etc etc again again again that appeal is long gone and replaced with annoyance and hate.

I have produced more and have done more worthy of the screen than they have. At least I am trained to act and write and have some talent.

I predict in the next 3 years if the girls don't alter there methods there so called empire will collapse. God willing.
