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

... an awful film.
To say that New York Minute is a vehicle for the Olsen sisters is perhaps a slight to four-wheeled conveyances of all kinds.
Even when it feels forced, the Olsen twins' appeal -- I freely admit -- remains a two-for-one bargain.
Falls somewhere between a home video and a full-blown movie.
Pure pablum and tiresome in the bargain.
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.
But in the middle of all this straining for zaniness, there is an extended sequence that demonstrates just how bad, bad acting can be.
Not great, but Olsen twin fans won't care.
A basic rip-off of "Ferris Bueller"...
Most viewers will likely be checking their watches, probably wishing this Minute were gone in 60 seconds.
[The stars] never attempt to do anything outside their limited range; like, for example, act.
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.
Inoffensive piece of tween fluff. I watched this while suffering from a bad back, and headache, and I always seem to rate this type of stuff better when I am not well . Possibly if i watched it next week, would say it is only a two star rating. For some reason I seek out the fluff as it is not demanding and can't handle too much thinking at times like this. LOL.
I don't think I have ever sat through an Olsen twins movie prior to this, mainly I picked this one because I like Jared Padalecki in Supernatural, thought I would check it out.
I have to say neither twin can really act, but they are likeable in a big eyed sort of way. None of this story rings true, and they should be shot for the David Bowie cover at the end (supposedly Roxy's band), but generally I can't even sit through one of these kidsy movies in full, so I guess it couldn't have been too awful, or maybe it's just that I couldn't really move to switch it off!
Fun when I was a kid, but its very cliche now!
I didn't think that this movie could have pretty much fun... Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen can give me some fun too, not just they two having fun for themselves... But this movie get a little boring when it comes at the ending... Overall, it's a pretty good movie to watch...
Pretty average slapstick young girl humour. Levy adds a bit of character to what is essentially a very flat film. Considering it was only made for the money it has enough moments to make it mildly enjoyable. The twins have nice chemistry but not much comic timing and the film is devoid of anything to stretch their acting capabilities.
