Trivia

The sisters pass by a street vendor in Chinatown selling bootleg DVDs of "Holiday In The Sun 2" (a bogus movie). This is a reference to the Olsen twins made-for-video release Holiday in the Sun (2001). This bootleg DVD is also seen later on among the bootleg merchandise that Jane finds in Ma Bang's Nail Parlor. Other bootleg merchandise she finds include a "Final Recourse" DVD (another bogus movie) and a Simple Plan "Vacation" CD (a bogus CD single for the song the band performed in the film, which also appears on the soundtrack album).

Goofs

The girls are supposed to be from Nassau County on Long Island. When they go to take the train to the city they get on the "Nassau Railroad." There is no such thing. They would have taken the Long Island Rail Road - and the movie's trains look nothing like the LIRR's. See more »

Great Family Movie
18 June 2004 | by (Annapolis, Maryland) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a good movie. Its not fair to compare it to "Mean Girls." Although I like Lindsay Lohan, Mean Girls is intended for a different age group. My daughter is 10 and loved "Freaky Friday", but I feel "Mean Girls" has too much sexual content for that age. "New York Minute" is aimed for the "tween age" group. There aren't enough of these kinds of movies out. Its either cartoon-like movies, which this age thinks are not cool enough for them, or right to sex and violence. The New York Minute is an in-between kind of movie that we need to fill the gap for this age group. The people who are saying "this is so predictable" and "we have already seen that kinda movie before" are not the target audience. Yes, we older ones have seen this plot many times before, but our kids have not. Even if we let them see the movies that are similar, they were based in the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, etc., so the trends and such will be harder for them to relate to. Mary Kate and Ashley have not surrendered to pressure to include sex and violence in their movies and I say good for them. This is a fun movie that the whole family can enjoy and get a lot of laughs. If there were more movies like this, maybe our young wouldn't be so prone to grow up so fast, and actually still enjoy being with their families.
