Storyline

Delivery-truck driver Eddie Popko, a dreamy wannabe-cowboy, always flirts with convenience-store clerk Rhonda Thompson, but his enthusiasm dims when he meets her hostile 5-year-old twins, Sarah and Julie. When they hear her wish for a holiday without her handfuls, they sneak off to Great-Grandma Mimi's house; unable to find her or the right bus, they sneak into Eddie's truck. He takes to babysitting during his round, but when he delivers them home, he's knocked unconscious by dumb Harvey and mean Shirley, senior robbers who steal his truck, including the Christmas parcels and the twins--who have possession of the lottery tickets he bought in hopes of winning $1.3 million. He decides to help Rhonda and police detective Gremp with the search and even raises a 'borrowed' ransom. Written by KGF Vissers

Rhonda Thompson: Well, let's see. Mini donuts, beef jerky, jellybeans. I know you're not a health nut.
Eddie Popko: Well hey I take a Flintstone vitamin every single morning.
Rhonda Thompson: [Observes a magazine] Wrestle-Mundo magazine. So I'm guessing that you're not exactly intellectual.

This Was A Wonderful Movie!!!!!

The reason I give this movie a 10 is because it was WONDERFUL!!!!! I have been a huge Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen fan ever since they were 9 months old. And I will always be a huge fan of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. I have read some of the comments that other people have wrote. About how Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen cannot act. And I know that people can have their own opinion. But my opinion is that they can act and they can sing really really really well. I will always and I do mean always will support Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. I think that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have a lot of talent when it comes to acting and singing. And I think that for this being the first movie that they have ever done together they did a wonderful job. To Grandmother's House We Go is one of my favorite Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen movies. And it will always be. As a matter of fact I have a copy of this movie. I think that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have a lot of talent in acting, singing and dancing.
