Here's Where You Can Watch New York Minute

Nowadays, we rarely hear about the Olsen twins. Their younger sister, Elizabeth, is the one in headlines for her star-making role as Wanda Maximoff in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So, it's easy to forget about their absurd fame in the '90s and early 2000s, which began with their shared role on the sitcom "Full House" and ended just as they reached adulthood with the teen film "New York Minute."

2004's "New York Minute" was the last hurrah for Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen — on film, anyway — as they've hardly been on screen since. It was their last shared movie, and only their second that made it to theaters, after 1995's "It Takes Two," but it didn't exactly perform how anyone hoped it would. To be fair, "Mean Girls" had just premiered the week before, per MTV.

The twins star as 17-year-old Jane (Ashley Olsen), the studious one, and Roxy (Mary-Kate Olsen), the punk one, who head to Manhattan for an adventure-filled day: Jane needs to give a speech to win a scholarship, while drummer Roxy wants to share her demo tape with the pop-punk band Simple Plan. But along the way, they accidentally get involved in a music pirating operation, meet some potential boyfriends, and kidnap a dog, all while being chased around town by truant officer Max Lomax (Eugene Levy).

New York Minute is available for digital rental or purchase

Judging by the "New York Minute" box office numbers — a dismal $5.9 million internationally on opening weekend, according to The Numbers — it's likely few have actually seen this movie. It got trashed by critics and sports an 11% Tomatometer score on Rotten Tomatoes, but some fans adore the movie, regardless. If you want to watch it, you'll have to pay because no streaming service currently has "New York Minute" included in its collection. Instead, the movie can be rented or purchased digitally through several sites. YouTube, Apple TV, Amazon, and Vudu, among others, all have the rent and purchase price respectively set at $2.99 and $9.99.

In the movie's favor is Eugene Levy playing a "Ferris Bueller's Day Off"-style role as the truant officer doing far too much work to try and keep Roxy from skipping school. Plus, "Supernatural" fans may be tickled to see Jared Padalecki before his monster-hunting fame as the son of a senator and love interest for Roxy. It was one of his last roles before he jumped in the Chevy Impala to save the world from demons, angels, and everything in between.

If nothing else, "New York Minute" will certainly offer a little nostalgia trip into 2004.
