  1. New York Minute isn't High Art, but it is highly entertaining, especially if you're a member of its target audience.
  2. Polished and bouncy without being overly mawkish or unduly obnoxious. Above all, it is short.
  3. Overly broad and silly at times, the film also has an "important" message to pass along to its young viewers.
  4. A coy, frantic attempt at screwball comedy, lightly seasoned and more than a little gummy.

    In trying to straddle both the grown-up and kiddie worlds with this inappropriately sexualized effort - their first theatrical release since 1995's "It Takes Two" - the Olsens have lost their footing.

    My only question is, how did they ensnare you, Eugene?
  7. The kind of winking, disingenuous youth comedy that tries to play it both ways, dangling the twins as fetish objects and then yanking them back on the leash because, you know, this is a family film.

    The only reason I gave it a one, was because Dr.Drew was fantastic.

    I HATED it. I tried 4 TIMES to watch this movie to the end, but got bored and turned it off. So awful. Just horrendous. Do yourself a favor,I HATED it.
