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, up for a scholarship at Oxford University, has a major speech to give while laid-back rock rebel Roxy 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, the sisters also find unexpected romance in the form of a Senator’s bad-boy son and a cute bike messenger. Jane and Roxy seem to have everything going against them…but in the “concrete jungle,” anything can change in a New York Minute!

Joining the New York Minute cast are Andy Richter as a limousine driver with an agenda; Darrell Hammond as a business executive with bad luck; Andrea Martin as Senator Anne Baxter-Lipton; Mary Bond Davis as a beautician with a heart of gold and a bag of tricks; radio personality Dr. Drew in his feature film debut as Roxy and Jane’s dad; and Jack Osbourne, also in his feature film debut as a wayward band manager.
