New York Minute | 20 | PG | - 3.3.1

17-year-old twin sisters (Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen) who look identical but could not be any more different, are forced to spend a day together in New York city. They each try to visit disparate places, which are important to them but due to a series of mishaps their schedules are messed up. Meanwhile, a truancy officer (Eugene Levy) is after them and determined to catch at least one of them. Also with Andy Richter and Darrell Hammond. Directed by Dennie Gordon. [1:26]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A young man and a young woman kiss in several scenes. A young man removes his shirt (we see him bare-chested) and walks into a room where he is surprised to find two young women (one is wrapped in a towel with bare shoulders, and the other wears a robe) and he says "Is it my birthday?" A young man is tossed off his bike and lands on a young woman, they both fall on the ground, he lands on top of her and they flirt. Women dance wiggling their hips and buttocks. A young woman has a nightmare that she is nude on stage in front of a crowd (we see her bare shoulders and back). A young woman who has fallen from a window washer's rig is apparently nude because we see the towel that she was wearing dangling from the frame of the rig. A man in his underwear sings on a street corner (we see his bare back and the phrase "naked cowboy" on a sign). A young woman's skirt flips up and we see the tops of her thighs and a bit of a buttock. A young woman steps into a shower (we see her bare shoulders and bare legs). A young woman's skirt is caught in the spokes of a bicycle and is torn, shortening the skirt and exposing more of her leg above the knee. Young women wear low-cut tops and dresses that reveal cleavage and bare shoulders. Young women wear short skirts that reveal bare legs and short tops that reveal bare abdomens.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man and a young woman fight: he is kicked in the face and stomach and shoved onto a train, and as the train pulls away he threatens her with "I'm gonna kill you." A girl kicks a door that hits a man in the head then she tips shelves over on top of the man and she runs away. A man slams two men's heads together and they are knocked out. A young woman accidentally punches a man in the nose. A young woman slaps another young woman in the face. Two young women speed in a car while being chased by a man in a camper; the young women nearly hit a man in a construction site, a man in the back seat spills coffee on his pants and is tossed back and forth across the seat, they drive in reverse through a tight alley, crash through a gate onto a busy street and the camper gets stuck in the alley because it is too narrow to pass through. Two young women on a window washer's rig fall down the side of a tall building, the rig tips and they are dumped into a dumpster (no one is injured). Two young women jump into a manhole and walk through an underground drain. A young man and a young woman toss a dog back and forth and eventually out a window (we see the dog running along the ledge of a tall building). A young woman is physically tossed off a stopped train and lands on the ground, a young woman is dumped into a laundry bin and put on a truck, and a young man is locked in the trunk of a car. A young man is tossed off his bike and lands on a young woman, and they both fall on the ground. A man jumps off a stage into a crowd and crashes onto the ground. A young woman has panic attacks where she hyperventilates. Young women run into a busy street causing cars to screech to a halt, and a man chases them. A huge snake slithers into a shower where a young woman bathes, and another young woman holds the snake around her shoulders. A man shakes a dog and the dog urinates in his face. A young woman slips and falls into a very dirty toilet (we hear her scream and see her with toilet paper clinging to her skirt). A man is bumped and spills his hot coffee on his lap. A young woman has a blue beverage spilled on her blouse.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
