Movie Reviews

Fun Olsen Twins Flick
Molly P. | Portland, Oregon USA | 11/17/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Kids should like this, especially if they are Mary-Kate and Ashley fans. The Olsen twins play Susie and Jessica, daugters of a single dad who gets an invitation to visit his relative's ranch. The girls' mother (who has passed away) loved to spend time at the ranch when she was the girls' age. While there, Susie and Jessica discover some secret treasures that belonged to their mom. Meanwhile, the ranch owner's son has evil plans to sell the ranch and turn it into a theme park. So the girls come up with a plan to save the ranch. "How The West Was Fun" is funny and sweet and a lot of fun. There's some action, but nothing too scary for kids, I don't think. Horses, nature, river rafting -- lots of fun outdoorsy stuff. It's not the very best Olsen Twins movie out there, but it's high on my list."
Great video!

"I loved this video. I have seen it so many times and not once have I found it boring! It really gives you a feeling of Nature. The story is about twins who take a trip to their grandmothers ranch. they want to protect it from being torn down to build a theme park. The twins have many exciting and scary adventures, whether they're rafting on waterfalls or riding to the city on a horse. They try to preserve nature but they have a problem. You will really enjoy this video."
How The West Was Fun - How This Movie Was Fun!

"BRILLIANT! This movie is awesome, I LOVE IT! Mary-Kate and Ashley are acting with real talent and the movie is SO exciting! It's really cool! It's absolutely one of my favorite movies by MKA, but I love every movie they've starred in, so I guess that makes no sence;) But it IS really good! Mary-Kate and Ashley also star in one of the songs in the movie when they're having a camp fire! :) Really, REALLY good!
If you're a fan of Mary-Kate and Ashley you CAN'T miss it!"
Touching and magical

"This is a true American me it ranks right up there with 3 men and a baby, and Freaky FRiday ( the shelley Long version). mary-kate and ashley are both extremely talented and make you feel their emotions...they do not hold back at all in their performances....martin mull is amazing as Bart " the fink " times I almost felt bad for him.....the scene in the raft was exciting fun that kept me on the edge of mu seat.... This movie is great enough to get me to put down an Ann M. Martin book. I recommend it for any true cinema fan."
