Marking their first theatrical-release feature since 1995's It Takes Two, the Olsen twins bring their adventures back to the big screen with New York Minute. Billed as a sort of Ferris Bueller's Day Off for tweens, the plot involves the escapades of two enterprising Long Island girls, Roxy (Mary-Kate Olsen) and Jane (Ashley Olsen), as they decide to dupe their parents and spend a day on the island of Manhattan. It seems the high-minded Jane has a speech to give to a scholarship committee, while the punky Roxy wants to meet her favorite rock band. When Jane's planner gets swiped,… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"... an awful film."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Falls somewhere between a home video and a full-blown movie."
‑ Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle
"Not great, but Olsen twin fans won't care."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"[The stars] never attempt to do anything outside their limited range; like, for example, act."
‑ Anthony Del Valle, Las Vegas Mercury
"Separately the characters are annoying; together it's unnervingly like watching one actress playing twins."
‑ Angie Errigo, Empire Magazine
"To say that New York Minute is a vehicle for the Olsen sisters is perhaps a slight to four-wheeled conveyances of all kinds."
‑ Susan Walker, Toronto Star
"Pure pablum and tiresome in the bargain."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"A basic rip-off of "Ferris Bueller"..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Stanley Kubrick once said, 'If it can be written, or thought, it can be filmed.' Obviously, he had never seen the script for New York Minute."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"A hectic, overcooked sugar rush of a movie."
‑ Neil Smith,
"Even when it feels forced, the Olsen twins' appeal -- I freely admit -- remains a two-for-one bargain."
‑ Ted Fry, Seattle Times
"The story is supposed to be about the twins' adventures in Manhattan. Mostly it's an excuse for the two to visit different neighborhoods and the script to drag in every stereotype the writers can think of."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Most viewers will likely be checking their watches, probably wishing this Minute were gone in 60 seconds."
‑ Mary Lasse, Christianity Today
"Histrionically speaking, the Olsens couldn't be called twin peaks, but they're getting there."
‑ Harry Haun, Film Journal International
"Esta atrocidade poderia representar um embaraço para todos os envolvidos, caso estes tivessem algum senso de ridículo - o que, a julgar por este longa, não parece ser o caso."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
