At last -- a film that will appeal to both the tween market and the raincoat crowd! (Some folks say art can't bring people together?)

It's all lifeless material that might have been saved by the leads' charms, but as it turns out, they have none.

All that's really resolved is that the Olsens aren't very accomplished actors, and a plot as contrived as this is a slap in the face to anyone in the audience over age 10, but this is hardly unexpected.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have many millions of dollars... But in New York Minute, despite a lavish budget and one of the most expensive movie sets in the world -- the island of Manhattan -- they can't buy love, talent, or a decent script.

The Olsen girls' "Minute" seems like hours and hours of silly entertainment

The twin millionaires bust up an international piracy ring to help make the world safe again for the manufacturers of overpriced CDs and DVDs...

[It] may be the first movie that could play in a double feature with either something with Hillary Duff or Lindsay Lohan or with one of the film versions of Lolita.

[No nudity] is shown, but the point is made: guys, they know what you're thinking.

A terminally lame teen comedy with a grade-school mentality.

...a misguided vanity piece for the twin teenyboppers. Shockingly, this is one pronounced slab of pre-adolescent pabulum at its finest...or at its worst-simply take your pick

Overly broad and silly at times.

The further you are from being a teenage girl, the less likely this movie is going to appeal to you.

The weakest part of New York Minute turns out to be the Olsen Twins themselves.

To say that New York Minute is a vehicle for the Olsen sisters is perhaps a slight to four-wheeled conveyances of all kinds.

Gordon keeps the pace brisk, and between makeovers and pratfalls, the girls deliver an easy-to-swallow dose of girl power.

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.

Veteran observers of the small and famous may watch Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen in New York Minute, and think: Pia Zadora, even smaller, but doubled.
