New York Minute is a 2004 American teen comedy film starring Mary-Kate Olsen, Ashley Olsen and Eugene Levy. It was directed by Dennie Gordon and released on May 7, 2004. In the film Mary-Kate and Ashley play twins with opposing personalities who have a series of misadventures around New York City. New York Minute reunited Mary-Kate and Ashley with their Full House co-star, Bob Saget. It is the Olsen twins' first theatrical film since the 1995 film It Takes Two and is the last film in which the two worked together, to date. New York Minute follows 17 year old identical twin sisters Roxanne "Roxy" Ryan and Jane Ryan over the course of one day spent in New York. Uptight Jane (Ashley Olsen) has a speech scheduled, while less conventional Roxy (Mary-Kate Olsen) hopes to get backstage at a video shoot and give her demo tape to Simple Plan, her favorite band. Jane and Roxy's plans go wrong when a mix-up lands them in the middle of a black market music piracy scheme. The girls are chased from Chinatown to Times Square to Harlem by assassins, politicians and a truancy officer (Eugene Levy). Romantic interest comes in the form of a Senator's son (Jared Padalecki) and a bike messenger (Riley Smith).
