Trivia

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 »

Counting the minutes!!!!
18 October 2004 | by SajeevaSSee all my reviews

Well what can you expect from 2 teenagers who have obviously never participated in 'serious' acting and whose credits have been a series of obnoxious TV movies which barely received any good ratings?

Well you can expect the worst and hope for the best. This movie was definitely NOT GOOD - but in comparison to all the Olsen twin's movie's, this stands out. The same typical Olsen sequences of twins with different personalities is well captured even in this movie- and unfortunately i believe that this is the limit. Even before watching this movie,the fact that earning the title of the lowest box office grossing for a film opening in over 3000 theaters, basically leashes the impending movie experience. So well that just reveals that the Olsen twins should just be participators of the modeling industry - as for their contribution to the film industry- well they are cute and they not impressive at all, so let them not contribute...please.

I believe if they should continue acting - get rid of the twin act and surprise people with something new. As for 'New york minute' you can watch it if you just wanna see the twins shake their behinds - but besides - SERIOUSLY...DON'T BOTHER!!!!
