New York Minute, the new action comedy starring Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen, follows 17-year-old sisters Jane and Roxanne Ryan on a wild romp through the streets, subways and sewers of Manhattan during one unforgettable day. Uptight overachiever Jane (Ashley Olsen), up for a scholarship at Oxford University, has a major speech to give while laid-back rock rebel Roxy (Mary-Kate Olsen) hopes to get backstage at a video shoot and slip her demo tape to the band. But Jane's and Roxy's plans go wildly awry and the two must join together when a mix-up involving Jane's all-important day planner lands them in the middle of a black market music piracy scheme.
Sidetracked, sideswiped and chased from Chinatown to Times Square to Harlem by everyone from assassins to politicians to a whacked-out truancy officer (Eugene Levy), the sisters also find unexpected romance in the form of a Senator's bad-boy son (Gilmore Girls' Jared Padalecki) and a cute bike messenger (Riley Smith). Jane and Roxy seem to have everything going against them ... but in the "concrete jungle," anything can change in a New York Minute!
