Former-child stars Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen reach the age where they have one thing on their minds — boys! and so this film features the teen tycoons daydreaming about pubescent hunks while showing off their buff, 15-year-old bods on the beach. But no Mary-Kate and Ashley movie is complete without a mystery; unfortunately, it doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to figure out that this Holiday is no day at the beach. Sisters Alex (Ashley) and Madison (Mary-Kate)
dream of taking a Hawaiian vacation with their pals during Winter Break, until their wealthy father pulls them out of school early for a trip to Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas. At the hotel, the girls meet a snobby heiress and convene with vacationing family friends whose son, Griffen (Austin Nichols), has a crush on Madison. But dual love triangles ensue when both twins find the man of their dreams. Alex falls for Jordan (Ben Easter), an islander who works at the aquarium but can't devote his attention to her because the heiress, Brianna (Megan Fox), demands his affections. Threatened with losing his job if he doesn't keep Brianna happy, Jordan sneaks time to have tropical fun with Alex. Madison is smitten with Scott (Billy Aaron Brown), a bumbling teen who just can't seem to say the right thing, but looks good trying. Scott asks Griffen for help and a Cyrano-esque mix-up follows. Soon, Jordan gets the gang involved in a antiquities-smuggling investigation which lands him in jail, and it's up to Alex and Madison to clear his name. The mystery scenario develops as the girls search for the real criminal mastermind. In an attempt to please the Olsen twins' core generation-MTV audience, this slight caper over-utilizes musical montages. Loyal Mary-Kate and Ashley fans will find Bahamian bliss despite the film's convoluted plot and minimal dialogue, but others should take a pass.
