I've seen every MK&A movie made - and this has a fresh plot, more believable (than other Olsen shows ) characters and a great setting. Wonderful, clean fun for preteen and younger teens. Don't let the lousy reviews discourage you. MK&A hold their own as actresses in this particular show, and the other character plots accentuate the HEA story nicely. Not your typical MK&A movie.
Fun Fashion Flick!

"The Olsens continue to please their fans with another fun film. Winning London obviously takes place in the UK, where the girls and their Model UN team compete in a UN international competition for high school students. In order to learn about their host country, a very cute, very rich London boy, who just happens to be Mary Kate's love interest, gives the group of American teens a tour of the city.A most refreshing change occurs in Winning London in that Mary Kate and Ashley are depicted as two very distinct individuals; different hair styles, different clothes, different aspirations, all of which makes us see them as two sisters who look alike, but are clearly different people. This is a very positive alteration, one that I think audiences were ready for. An aspect that remains true Olsens however, is their friendship together.It was great to showcase some other fine young talent; the friend with the video camera was amazingly good, and Ashley's love interest was indeed a babe. This movie had the feel of Dawson's Creek, but with more style.Worth the money."
The Best Olsen Twin Movie So Far

"This movie is the best. It is about two sisters Riley and Chloe who go to London along with 3 other people from their school and perticipate in the Modal U.N. compoition. This movie is different from all other Mary-Kate and Ashley movies becuase the girls Riley and Chloe are totally different and a lot of times don't get along. In Winning London it is the first Mary-Kate and Ashley movie where they are not perfect and their lives don't depend on lip gloss, they are actully somewhat smart in this movie. Winning London is also a very, very funny movie in many ways! This movie also teaches people that their dreams can come true. You should rent or buy this movie today. One thing is that in every Olsen Twins movie they BOTH have to fall in love with someone, this movie has no exaptions to that fact."
It's a great movie!!

"Winning London is an awsome movie! If you've seen Mary-Kate and Ashley's other video Our Lips Are Sealed it is just as good, if not better. Winning London isn't a complete comedy like Our Lips Are Sealed, but is just as good. It's a bit of a drama, but with a twist of comedy on the side. In Winning London, Mary-Kate and Ashley are on a Model U.N. team. They have to compete against people from all around the world. For part of their research, they tour London and go to clubs. In the meantime, they fall in love and learn all what competing is about. If you love Mary-Kate and Ashley, you'll love Winning London. Even if you're not a Mary-Kate and Ashley fan, who knows you might just like it. This movie is for all ages."
Winning my vote

"Winning London is a well-done children's movie with some glowing scenes. While the girl-meets-boy theme is, as always in an Olsen twins' movie, included, this movie is not so focused on it.The main point of the story is this: go to London to win a competition.
The underlying stories that I love are these: a boy growing up and standing up for himself (the Peter Pan aspect), and a girl who learns and grows up (to be less competitive). These things really made the movie for me. A little bit of culture and comedy made me smile, and a somewhat more grown-up theme (than usual) for a twins' movie kept my interest.
While there are very predictable scenes and sometimes annoying parts, the movie is worth seeing.In the end, the group doesn't so much "win London", but the each character wins a discovery of themselves and a new view on life. In this way, it wasn't the competition that made them grow so much as their experiences."
Olsen Twins Best Movie Yet

"Some people say that Winning London is the Olsen Twins best movie yet, that would be me. In this movie of course they BOTH have to fall in love. In this movie Mary-Kate and Ashley are actually somewhat smart and for the first time they are not exactly alike. Like that Ashley's hair has all thses kinks in in it now and that their personalities are totally different. Chloe, played by Mary-Kate, is smart and only worried about winning the Modal U.N. competition. She likes to shop and hang out with boys, but her life doesn't depend on it. Riley, played by Ashley, is exactly the opposite. She is worried about how she looks and she is always shopping and only joined the Modal U.N. team to get the attention of her crush Brain, played by Brandon Tylar. Brain is popular and cute. He is the star running-back of the Lakeview High's football team. He only joined the Modal U.N. team to put on his collage reassume. Dylan is the opposite of Brain. Dylan, played by Eric Jungmann, always has his video cam and is filming everything. He is dorky and out of the group with is personality. Rachel, played by Rachel Roth, is like Dylan in many ways. They are both down lower on the popularity scale. Rachel is smart and focused in her work, but she also knows when to stop, unlike Chloe. Chloe runs in to this English guy named James Browning, played by Jesse Spencer. And the rest of the story I beat you can guess from other MKA movies."
