Eight-year-old twins Suzy (Mary-Kate Olsen) and Jessica (Ashley Olsen) live with their widowed father Stephen since the death of their mom the previous year. One day they receive a letter from their mom's Godmother Natty who wants them to come visit her at her dude ranch where their mom spent a lot of time growing up. Even though their dad has trouble at work with his callous boss, the family eventually manages to go visit Natty. But it turns out that the ranch is in trouble. The number of paying visitors has decreased and Natty might not be able to afford it much longer. The girls want to help and begin coming up with ideas. Meanwhile, Natty's grown-up son Bart pushes his elderly mother to sell the ranch for the sake of her health, but Suzy and Jessica suspect that he may have some ulterior motives.
My kids thought this was the best movie by the Olsen twins, and so did I. ("Little Rascals" is not really an Olsen twin movie, and we didn't like "It Takes Two" as well.) Its plot is predictable but plausible, with a touch of mystery and suspense. Martin Mull gives a fine performance as the bad guy. The western scenery is excellent: production values seem higher than most made-for-TV movies. I think this is as good as many higher-rated IMDb movies, but it lacks drug or alcohol references, so I guess many pseudo-adults can't appreciate it. One funny part is the way George (Ben Cardinal), a native American / Indian, keeps arriving everywhere via mountain bike before the horses do.
