Sweet Movie
17 February 2007 | by la_descaradaSee all my reviews

This movie totally made my childhood Halloween! Even now when I watch it I think its a bit lame but its still a sweet movie.

The acting is alright, but in a movie where the stars are under 10, what else can be expected? Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are adorable as the girls in this movie. Despite their age their acting is as good as any 20-something star on a daytime drama and no one really complains about their acting.

Some scenes still make me laugh with my sister when we watch it, and we always rent it for tradition on Halloween. Seriously, it doesn't deserve the bad reviews. Its a sweet kids movie, if you want intensity and drama go watch something else.
