Goofs

When the twins leap, mosh-pit style, into the crowd, they run towards the crowd, leap and do a half-rotation in midair so that they land on their backs. In the first angle, where they run towards the camera, they rotate in the opposite direction. (At one point their backs are towards each other.) While they are in the air, there is a cut to the reverse angle where we see them leap again. This time they rotate in the same direction so that, at one point, one twin is facing the back of the other. See more »

Why did I even bother?
11 October 2004 | by TheOtherFoolSee all my reviews

My girlfriend has a thing going for the Olsen twins (no, not that kind of thing), and I decided to go along with it and watch New York minute with her. What I got? An easy to digest, easy to forget, silly and rather stupid little movie. Just what I expected.

The twins are divided into the extremely original barbie-wild girl types who decide in the end they truly love each other. You know, after 90 minutes (oh, if it only lasted 1 minute!) of arguing and stuff.

Everybody's happy in this one, so the girls meet some cute guys and even the bad guys have a certain charm (it's Andy everybody! Man, where have you been?). And when the girls get lost in Harlem they're just gonna get their hair cut. Uh-huh.

Only watchable because of Levy and our main man, Mr. Andy Richter. Otherwise: ouch. 3/10.
