Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen take on the Big Apple in this action-adventure comedy. On the way to a crucial college interview, disciplined, tidy Jane, 17, is thwarted by her free-spirited, impulsive, untidy sister Roxy, 17, prompting an unfortunate series of mishaps that almost ruin everything ... and that reveal how much can happen in a New York Minute.

Critics Consensus: Feels more like a calculated product designed to expand the Olsens' brand than an actual movie. Also, it contains ethnic stereotyping and sexual innuendo.

Not great, but Olsen twin fans won't care.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that there is some very mild language (a post-it saying "remove stick from butt" is about as rough as it gets) and violence. There is some booty-shaking, implied comic nudity, and skimpy clothing, but when the girls have to run around the city wearing a robe and a towel both are no-nonsense cover-ups. There are a couple of kisses and one of the girls has a boy fall on top of her. There is also some crude potty humor. Parents will be more concerned about the behavior in the movie, including lying, cutting school, cheating, stealing, forgery, reckless driving without a license, and accepting a ride from a stranger, all with very little by way of consequences. Audience members may also find the portrayal of minority characters to be uncomfortably stereotyped. The African-American characters are kind, wise, and generous but they express themselves in a manner that is exaggerated and caricature-ish even beyond what is allowable for a comedy. The villain is a Dragon Lady right out of the old "Terry and the Pirates" comic strip, and Andy Richter's henchman who thinks he's Chinese so speaks in pidgin English is just awful.
