''New York Minute'' is a 2004 teen comedy film starring MaryKateAndAshleyOlsen in their first theatrical outing since ''ItTakesTwo''. It also ended up being their last together - though Mary-Kate has acted since. It did very poorly at the box office and was savaged by critics, marking the beginning of the end of the twins' stardom.

''New York Minute'' is a 2004 teen comedy film starring MaryKateAndAshleyOlsen in their first theatrical outing since ''ItTakesTwo''. It also ended up being their last together - though Mary-Kate has acted since. It did very poorly at the box office and was savaged by critics, marking the beginning of the end of the twins' stardom.

The plot follows the twin Ryan sisters - Jane (Ashley), the smart and responsible one and Roxy (Mary-Kate), the rebellious one. On the day the film takes place, both Roxy and Jane travel into New York. Jane must give an important speech for her college future while Roxy is hoping to sneak backstage at a Simple Plan concert. They end up caught in an elaborate piracy conspiracy as well as being framed for stealing a senator's pet dog. Also on their tail is a truant officer (Eugene Levy) as well as the inevitable love interests.

* BackUpTwin: Jane isn't there to make her speech while Roxy is there with her notebook. So she tries to do Jane's speech for her (and fails miserably). [[spoiler: Luckily Jane shows up anyway]].
** This backfires on Jane earlier in the film. Roxy is thrown off the train for not having a ticket. The conductor sees Jane and assumes Roxy has snuck back on board and throws her out too.
* TheBechdelTest: Passes quite easily with twin sisters as the protagonists. The only other female characters are a senator whom the girls don't interact with much and a group of hairdressers. They pass the test too.

* ControlFreak: Jane.
* CrashIntoHello: Jane's love interest crashes into her with a '''bike'''.
* CuteClumsyGirl: Roxy.
* DaddysLittleVillain: Gender Flipped. Bennie is Mummy's Little Villain.
* EpicFail: Roxy tries to bluff her way through Jane's speech by quoting AvrilLavigne.
* HairFlip: Both twins when Trey walks in on them, complete with slow motion and No Doubt's "Hey Baby!" playing over it.
* MakeoverMontage: The girls get one in a beauty salon.
* MsFanservice: Ashley Olsen's character actually has three nude scenes in the film. Her opening dream sequence, a shower scene and her towel falling off after the twins leave a hotel. Her skirt also gets ripped in an earlier scene.
* TheOneGuy: The hairdressers has one male stylist who gets to do the dog's hair.

--> '''Trey:''' Is today my birthday?
** For the reverse, he's also shirtless.
* ThePresidentsDaughter: Gender Flipped as it's a female senator and her son.

* SassyBlackWoman: All the hairdressers who help the twins out.
* SatelliteLoveInterest: Jane's love interest Jim. In contrast, Roxy's has a little more to do with the plot.
