Did You Know?


Bob Saget: As the Olsen twins (wearing bathrobes), go running past him in the streets of New York, he turns around and stares at them, as if he knows who they are but cannot remember their names. Bob Saget played Danny Tanner on the sitcom Full House (1987), in which he was the father of Michelle Tanner (played by the Olsen twins). See more »


At the very end of the movie, the guys from the band decide to start playing again and the song starts. You can hear the drums playing but no one is actually playing them. See more »


Jane Ryan: I don't believe you, it says it right here. There's gonna be another train.
Ticket Window Guy: How could I forget? It's the magic-leprechaun train. It leaves for New York whenever you want. Powered by your imagination.

27 May 2004 | by crazyblond7777777See all my reviews

First of all, you have to love mary-kate and ashley to love this movie. I am a huge mary-kate and ashley fan and have been my whole life. I loved the New York Minute, i thought it was really cute. I would have to say that it is my favorite movie of all time! The only part of the movie that i did not like was the fight scene in the subway, it was kind of corny. I love how Roxy poses as Jane to help her get her scholarship, it was so sweet. I have seen every movie MKA have ever made and this is definitely my favorite. I hope they keep doing big screen movies because i will keep going to them. I saw the NYM twice and it gets better everytime! Also, the olsens are very appropriate and good role models for young children which is really awesome. Bottom line: the olsens rock and so does New York Minute!!!!
