    Holiday in the Sun is mindless, racist, and unevenly filmed.

    I pulled these out and dusted them off to watch with the girl I babysit for. I haven't seen these darling of the tween set since my own daughter was young enough to watch them. I have mixed feelings. there is nostalgia for the years when my baby girl was still a baby, and a certain appreciation of the lovely scenery, upbeat music, and the exotic adventures (swimming with the dolphins etc), but I don't care for the story (such as it is) or the characters much. the twins are portrayed as the male envisioned idea of the stereotypical, somewhat dim-witted teenage girl only interested in boys, clothes, and shopping. and what's with parent's allowing their fifteen yr olds to stay out late at night at a party in a foreign country with "boys" in their 20s!!! no way in HELL would I have allowed my teen to do that, and she was far more mature and responsible than the olsens were in the film. come on-I can see that night playing out like an episode of SVU! just watched one in fact where a 14 yr old got kidnapped to do kiddy porn because she went to a frat party to keep an eye on her 15 yr old sister who was more interested in banging a college guy than being the mature one and looking out for her little sister. yeah, i know-this movie is meant to be harmless fluff, but teaching girls that you can do any boneheaded thing you want and get out of it simply by being cute and spunky (15 yr olds and their friends singlehandedly bring down smuggling ring?)is somewhat dangerous.

    im sOo sick and tired of these mary kate and ashley movies, but i watch them any way so i can review them on flixter. this one is probably the most predictable yet, the time-consuming twins are in the bahamas this time, with a bunch of stupid stuff happening all around. not interesting, yet maybe for an eleven year old girl.
