TV and Movies·Posted on 26 Jun 2022I Ranked Every Single Mary-Kate And Ashley Film Because It's About Time We Appreciated How Amazing They AreIf you're a Mary-Kate and Ashley fan, I'd love to know if you agree...by Jessica BruntBuzzFeed StaffFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink If, like me, you're a millennial baby, I'm gonna assume you're aware of the most iconic set of twins ever — Mary-Kate and Ashley. Warner Vision Entertainment Well, as a massive fan of the Olsen twins myself, I decided to take a trip down memory lane (all in the name of research, of course) and rate EVERY film from my fave '90s duo! 💕 14. How The West Was Fun (1994) Warner Bros Domestic Television Distribution The Plot: After their mum passes away, the twins' maternal godmother writes to them asking if they would like to visit her ranch. Once they get there, the twins learn their godmother might have to sell her ranch. So, in true Mary-Kate and Ashley style, they decide to come up with a plan to keep it going!My Take: I must admit, I kind of forgot about this movie, but once I looked into it, bells did start ringing. I like the sweet, family-centric storyline, but due to the lack of memorability, I'm gonna have to knock off some points. I will award points for cuteness though — how adorbs are mini Mary-Kate and Ashley?!My score: 5/10Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score: 56% 13. The Challenge (2003) Warner Home Video The Plot: This film gives me serious "ahead of its time" vibes! It's based around the sisters being on a reality TV show, and an ongoing competition between them to win a college scholarship.My Take: I remember being seriously jealous of the Olsen twins' hair in this film. This movie loses a few points for me because of the rivalry between the sisters — sorry, I'm a lover, not a fighter!My score: 6/10Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score: 60% Watch the trailer here: View this video on YouTube youtube.com 12. To Grandmother's House We Go (1992) Warner Bros Television The Plot: Mary-Kate and Ashley's characters have been *testing* their mum's patience. After a whole lotta mischief, they decide to go and stay with their Grandma Mimi, where their misadventures take a scary turn.My Take: Firstly, I hope that Barney the dog was a paid actor for that epic chocolate brownie-stealing scene. Secondly, the twins' self-awareness and sadness at "making mommy cry" is too cute. Thirdly, I'm awarding additional points for the bike handle tassels and the iconic '90s bunches.My score: 6.5/10Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score: 59% Watch a clip of the movie here: View this video on YouTube youtube.com 11. It Takes Two (1995) Warner Bros The Plot: An oldie but a goodie, in this the sisters play identical looking strangers who end up meeting and playing matchmakers.My Take: Extra points for the sass and childhood memories, but minus a few points for the grainy film.My score: 6.5/10Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score: 60% Watch the trailer here: View this video on YouTube youtube.com 10. Getting There (2002) Warner Bros Home Entertainment The Plot: The twins head to Salt Lake City to watch the Olympics, but run into trouble when their car gets stolen. Fortunately, Ashley's character Taylor ends up going on a day out with a boy who she later finds out is her Olympic crush!My Take: Okay, so I was more of a boy band fan when I was younger, but show me a teenager who didn't daydream about being whisked away on a cool date! The difference is, while some of us were scribbling love hearts onto our school books, Taylor was out there living the dream!My score: 7/10Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score: 49% 9. Double, Double, Toil And Trouble (1993) Warner Bros Home Entertainment The Plot: This film has all the satisfying elements of a Halloween movie, including trying to overcome a baddie. In this movie, the villain just so happens to be their mean aunt who causes problems for the twins and their family.My Take: I was pretty dinky when this movie came out, so I feel like maybe I'm under-appreciating it compared to some of the later Olsen twin movies. My heart melted when I re-watched a scene in which the twins decide they do actually like being twins after all — relive it with me below and prepare to shed a tear!My score: 7/10Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score: 55% Watch a snippet from the movie here: View this video on YouTube youtube.com 8. Holiday in the Sun (2001) Warner Bros Pictures The Plot: This film sees the sisters jet to the Bahamas — I mean holiday goals or what?! Of course, they meet some boys they fancy, and they find themselves having to come up with a scheme after one of their new pals finds himself in a tricky situation.My Take: I was always super envious of the name Madison (Mary-Kate's character) in this movie — it just screamed 'cool' to me. This movie is filled to the brim with classic Mary-Kate and Ashley goodness, and I think I'm gonna need a rewatch for 43rd time now.My score: 7.5/10Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score: 55% Here's a clip from the movie: View this video on YouTube youtube.com 7. New York Minute (2004) Warner Bros Pictures The Plot: This movie sees the twins have adventures in — you guessed it — New York. In it, the sisters aren't close — Jane is after a college scholarship; meanwhile, sister Roxy just wants to hang out with a rock band.My Take: I could give New York Minute a 10 just for Jane's dreamy wardrobe tbh, but since they're not BFFs in this one – and given that I was desperate for a twin sister growing up – this makes it fall slightly lower down the rankings.My score: 7.5/10Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score: 47% Watch the trailer here: View this video on YouTube youtube.com 6. Winning London (2001) Warner Bros Home Entertainment The Plot: The twins head to England as Mary-Kate's character Chloe has been chosen to take part in the London International Model United Nations. In a twist of fate, Ashley's character Riley ends up being included in the trip after another teammate is unable to attend.My Take: Firstly, as a kid who wished they'd grown up in London, this film gets extra ~cool~ points from a pre-teen me. I'm also kinda obsessed with the mishaps in this film. Tripping in front of your crush is every girl's worst nightmare, plus this one ranks high for the use of the word 'barfed,' which quite honestly needs to make a comeback.My score: 8/10Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score: 56% Watch the trailer here: View this video on YouTube youtube.com 5. Our Lips Are Sealed (2000) Warner Home Video The Plot: Set in Australia, Mary-Kate and Ashley's characters have to go into hiding after witnessing a crime. They take on new identities and new lives, and I won't lie, their outfits are impeccable throughout.My Take: As well as the great fashion choices, I'm awarding extra points for every time they speak in unison, too. Very much here for that.My score: 8/10Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score: 53% Watch the trailer here: View this video on YouTube youtube.com 4. Billboard Dad (1998) Warner Bros Home Entertainment The Plot: I'm a sucker for a bit of romance, so Billboard Dad is right up my street! The story centres on sisters Emily and Tess, who pay for a billboard ad in the hopes of finding their dad a girlfriend.My Take: There's a lil' bit of drama, a classic Mary-Kate and Ashley challenge to tackle, and they also coin the phrase "hunkasaurus" – what's not to love?!My score: 8.5/10Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score: 48% Watch the trailer here: View this video on YouTube youtube.com 3. When in Rome (2002) Warner Home Video The Plot: Mary-Kate and Ashley's characters head to Italy to take part in a summer intern programme. Without spoiling the entire plot, let's just say their characters aren't exactly winning any employee of the month awards! And, of course, they get hella distracted by romance.My Take: Where do I begin? Tbh, I had a bit of a dilemma over spots two and three. This movie is seriously good, and I wasn't sure where to rank it. Firstly, it's set in Rome, which automatically makes it rather fabulous. Secondly, the twins are trying to break into the fashion industry, which is definitely a bit of me! Even so, I settled on third.My score: 9/10Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score: 46% Watch the trailer here: View this video on YouTube youtube.com 2. Switching Goals (1999) Warner Home Video The Plot: Twins Sam and Emma both have different interests — Sam is super sporty, and Emma loves fashion. To impress their parents, they try switching places.My Take: This movie has more than earned its spot as my second fave Mary-Kate and Ashley film of all time. Imo, this film is as much about the relationship between the twins and their parents as it is about their escapades as sisters. It gets ~serious~ bonus points for the iconic switch plot, but I'm deducting points for their parents' dodgy attitudes. My score: 9.5/10Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score: 47% Watch a clip of the movie here: View this video on YouTube youtube.com 1. Passport to Paris (1999) Warner Vision Entertainment The Plot: The twins head off on a dreamy trip to Paris. However, when their chaperone starts cramping their style, they turn to some boys they fancy to show them the city of romance instead.My Take: Imo, the number one spot could only go to Passport to Paris. Firstly, wouldn't we all have loved to be whisked off to Paris during the school holidays? Not to mention the fact that they spent their time shopping with a super cool model and meeting cute French boys. Also, Mary-Kate and Ashley (aka Melanie and Allyson) were Y2K fashion goals in this film, just sayin'.My score: 10/10Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score: 51% Watch the trailer here: View this video on YouTube youtube.com What's your fave Mary-Kate and Ashley film?
