"I am a BIG fan of Mary-Kate & Ashley and I waited an extra week, calling everyday to my local video store until they received the movie and saved me a copy. I rushed home to watch Holiday In The Sun which I found to be amazing. Fun, outgoing and closer to their age. I happen to be two weeks older than Mary-Kate & Ashley so I love how their movies relate to our age. The location was beautiful, the plot was fun and the guys were HOT! This video is a must and #1 on my Christmas list!"

"I'll admit that I'm a sucker for corny movies. I thought the past MK&A movies did a good job at filling in this need (I'm 15, in case this helps). This movie, however, was absolutely horrendous. First of all, there is no plot that you'd actually care about. The movie is all about two extroardinarily ditzy girls spending their winter break in the Bahamas. With their past movies, the twins had an interesting way of ending up in a different country, but with this movie, it's just two rich girls, Alex and Madison, getting whisked off in their private jet and moping about the fact that they couldn't go to Hawaii instead (wow, what humbleness). Seriously, the only two plots to the movie that I remember are a tug-of-war between a guy that two girls want, and a situation in which Alex and Madison had to get their friend out of jail (this entire sequence was extremely pitiful and juvenile). Everything else in the movie involves the twins "having fun" (playing around in a pool, shopping, getting grossed out by slaughtered fish, and boring, mindless stuff that can get very tiresome after a mere 30 seconds). I realize this is a movie for young girls, but even so, there are SO many better kids' movies out there that choosing this one would be pathetic. MK&A's past movies, specifically ~Our Lips are Sealed~ and ~Winning London~, are much better. Either that or go buy another Disney movie. I don't see how MK&A are even being good role models for little girls, as all they do is promote a superifical girlyness to the extreme. Don't waste your money on a film about .., stylish accessories, and anything that doesn't involve brainpower."
Ok.. i guess

"now i've been a mary-kate and ashley fan for I don't know how long- ever since full house. Well, anyway, I don't have this movie, but I saw it at a friend's house and though a part of me likes it just because it's Mary-Kate and Ashley, another part is just irked by how far fetched the plot is. First, they get whisked off to the Bahamas in a private jet and then they're mad about it because they miss their school trip to Hawaii (poor them!) They have to make the "best out of the situation". Personally, if I had problems like that, I would be... them! Anyway, they get the cutest guys on the beach, their parents are 20 years too young and totally aloof from their surroundings, and not to mention that they're in one of the greatest resorts on the entire planet (with their own suite)?! Well anyway, there's pretty much like half of a story line here, the girls' boyfriend (one of them) is secretly involved with an antiquity smuggling case- unknowingly of course. This lands him in jail. The girls must save him and keep little miss snot head richie rich Brianna Wallace away from him. All in all its an ok movie, only to be appreciated by mary-kate and ashley fans. BUT, they do have a great wardrobe and the scenery is great, which is why I have this two stars."

"I rented this movie for my 5 and 8 year old daughters and thought it a bit "old" for them, but they still enjoyed the Olsen twins, being who they are. Mary-Kate and Ashley have grown up so I think we'll have to stick to their older films, but this is a good one for the 10 and up crowd. I did like the song "Us Against the World" by Play and bought the single CD for my girls. Play consists of three 13-year olds and one 12 year-old from Sweden, and they sound great. I enjoy that CD better than anything else from the movie. I found the movie alright but the place where it was filmed was "AWESOME"! I plan an taking my family there someday..."
