If this is family entertainment, why do the Olsen twins spend 25 percent of the movie naked?

A textbook example of a film created as a 'vehicle' but without any ideas about where the vehicle should go.

Put the blame on a script that maims the movie's middling intentions by playing New York City's ethnic vibrancy as either obvious joke or more obvious menace.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olson are not actresses and they are not movie stars. What they are is a brand.

Uncle Jesse and Joey must have been too busy to make appearances. Lucky them.

The Olsens go the Britney route in this unfortunate Minute

There is not a minute of it that makes sense. Cause and effect are meaningless. There is no real humor. It is a dour trainwreck of a faux-screwball movie.

It's like watching your neighbor's modestly talented daughters perform -- they're dutiful and hard-working, but oddly uncomfortable considering that they've been in front of cameras since the age of one.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off re-enacted by over-sensualized, underage spider-monkeys.

...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

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

A basic rip-off of "Ferris Bueller"...

Most viewers will likely be checking their watches, probably wishing this Minute were gone in 60 seconds.

When Bob Saget is the best thing you have going for you in a movie, you're up the creek ... New York Minute may be the worst movie I have ever seen.

Harmless, sweet and sprightly - but wholly devoid of original thought.

Instantly forgettable thanks to a mediocre screenplay.
