''New York Minute'' is a 2004 teen comedy film starring Creator/MaryKateAndAshleyOlsen in their first--and last--theatrical outing since ''Film/ItTakesTwo''.

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 [[BigApplesauce New York City]], where 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, Max Lomax (Creator/EugeneLevy), as well as the inevitable love interests.

It did [[BoxOfficeBomb very poorly at the box office]] and was savaged by critics, marking the [[StarDerailingRole end of the twins' stardom]].

----

!!This film provides examples of:
* ActionGirl: Roxy knows Tae Kwon Do.
* AntiVillain: Max Lomax takes his job as a truant officer extremely seriously and spends most of the movie trying to track down Roxy (for good reason), but she outsmarts him every time. [[spoiler:After Roxy and Jane expose Bennie's plan in front of the whole conference, Lomax arrests Bennie instead.]]
* 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.
* ButtMonkey: Poor Jane.
* TheCameo: Bob Saget as a man whom Jane and Roxy run past on the street. He stops and stares at them, surprised.
* CampGay: See TheOneGuy below.
* ControlFreak: Jane.
* CrashIntoHello: Jane's love interest, Jim, crashes into her with a '''bike'''.
* CuteClumsyGirl: Both sisters, but mostly Roxy.
* DaddysLittleVillain: Gender Flipped. Bennie Bang is Mummy's Little Villain.
* EpicFail: Roxy tries to bluff her way through Jane's speech by quoting Music/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.
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Bennie is a nasty guy who makes an honest attempt to be Ma Bang's henchman, but his acts of malevolent are downright pathetic.
* 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.
* NotWearingPantsDream: Jane has a dream where she is giving a speech and her clothes disappear.
* TheOneGuy: The hairdressers has one male stylist who gets to do the dog's hair.
* ParentService: Trey first walks in on Roxy in a bathrobe in his hotel room, quickly followed by Jane coming out of the shower in a towel.
--> '''Trey:''' Is today my birthday?
** For the reverse, he's also shirtless.
* RipTailoring: Poor Jane. She has to do this to her skirt and then after she breaks a heel, Roxy breaks the other to match them.
* 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.
