    New York Minute - 05/07


    From Hollywood.com

    Synopsis: Today is the biggest day in the super-organized life of uptight overachiever Jane Ryan. She’s due to give a major speech at Columbia University for a competition to win a prestigious scholarship to Oxford University. Meanwhile, her rebellious sister Roxy is planning to ditch school and go backstage at a Simple Plan music video shoot in Manhattan, where she’ll slip her demo tape to the band’s A & R team. Despite having so little in common and so much emotional distance between them, the adversarial sisters reluctantly journey together to the Big Apple, but their plans go wildly awry when a mix-up involving Jane’s all-important dayplanner lands them in the middle of a shady black market music piracy scheme. Sidetracked, sideswiped and hotly pursued from Chinatown to Harlem by whacked-out truancy officer and a wannabe gangster, Jane and Roxy reluctantly join forces and find unexpected romance with a charming Senator’s son and a handsome bike messenger. If Jane doesn’t recover her dayplanner--and the crucial speech inside it--she can kiss her college scholarship goodbye. If Lomax finally catches up with Roxy, she’ll be drummed out of high school for good. Roxy and Jane seem to have everything going against them--but anything can change in a New York Minute!

    I know I'm not in the target audience for this movie, but I have a feeling it'll be dreadful.
    New York Minute. . . filmed in Toronto.

    I didn't know that.
    I like the Olsen twins but I might just rent this.

    It's getting AWFUL reviews. Unfunny, and apparently aimed at the male demographic, as I hear they're nearly naked through the whole movie. Which is just nasty.

    Sadly that seems to be the way young women seem to think they have to go if they want to be succesful nowadays.
    MK&A could live quite happily on profits of their clothing, make-up, perfume etc. empire, without ever making another movie, so when you don't need the cash why not take a chance and make something that has merit?

    yeah i try to stay away from critics. All of them seem to be elderly people.

    this caught my eye. So i am going to try and see it.

    in a preview it looks like they are aiming for a JLo look at one point

    I saw the trailers and I thought only one of them was nearly naked. But MK&A are aiming for the male audiences too. :rolleyes

    I am basically the same age as Mary Kate and Ashley (remember their Full House days!) and they've reached the age where they pretty much have to start sexing it up to make it in Hollywood. Apparently, they do want to continue acting, and separately... I guess it's not all about the money. You have to doubt how much success they're going to have without the twin thing going for them, but it's their choice.

    As for New York Minute, I'd never waste my money on it.
