Ashley's/Taylor's hair colour changes throughout the film. At the beginning, her hair is quite blonde, but when she arrives in Bishop, her hair clearly has had more brown put in, but nearer the end, it lightens again. See more »

Quotes

Charley Simms: Hey, I'm Charley.
Taylor Hunter: Taylor.
Charley Simms: You're either a mirage or lost cause I've never seen anyone my age around here.
Taylor Hunter: I'm real.
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! My car got stolen, the Caddy got spiked, we ...

That's an hour and a half of my life I'll never get back!!!
25 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

Ugh, where do I begin? This was the absolute worst movie I have ever seen. Period. The Olsens cannot act at all. They started in the business as babies, and therefore never took acting lessons. So, in their movies they're ALWAYS ditsy blonds, which leads me to believe that they are ditsy blonds in real life, since they can't act. They're seventeen now, and they'll never be taken seriously. How can they be when they actually MAKE movies like this one? There are so many scenes in this movie that make me so embarrassed for the actors... like the whole "H S" scene... horrible, horrible, horrible... just thinking about it makes me want to cry. This is a disgrace to the movie and theater business. If you've seen this movie... I feel your pain, and if you haven't, don't do it unless you want to subject yourself to the worst kind of torture possible... Mary-Kate and Ashley's pathetic attempt at trying to be entertaining. So, bottom line, I'm warning everyone, DO NOT SEE THIS MOVIE... unless you really want to see for yourself how bad it is... but, just trust me, you should be able to find something better to do with your time.
