This is a celebration of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's film career. This is also a public plea to Mary-Kate and Ashley to please put all of their movies on streaming for those of us who loved them and still want to rewatch. At the time of this writing, other than their final movie New York Minute and childhood films, the only possible way to watch all of their movies is to buy a DVD player considering that their films no longer regularly air on television the way they used to. Now that we have that out of the way, there should seriously be a case study conducted on how MK and Ash were able to build a global empire before social media and in the early phases of the internet—to the point where they were pretty much able to walk away from public entertainment life completely upon turning eighteen. We'll do part of that case study in this article, by looking at every single one of the Mary-Kate and Ashley movies, ranked from worst to best.
Every Mary-Kate and Ashley Movie, Ranked from Worst to Best
For a Y2K throwback
Kids today don't completely understand the force that these two were. Mary-Kate and Ashley had their own production company which brought forth most of their movies and television shows including the adventure/musical videos that they used to make back in the 1990s. They also had dolls, video games, clothing lines, books, and were just about everywhere you could think of. Most importantly, however, they understood their target market to a T, which is the number one key to being successful in any business.
MK and Ash knew that their fans were primarily pre-teen and teenage girls, and that it would probably be easier and more successful if they released their movies straight to video and DVD as opposed to theaters. See, the chances of young girls being able to convince their parents to take them to the theater with their annoying siblings being forced to tag along was...quite low as Mary-Kate and Ashley movies most likely wasn't the type of film that would interest parents and annoying siblings (especially younger brothers). However...you could get your parents to take you to the store to buy their latest movies, and while at the store you could possibly convince them to also buy the latest Mary-Kate and Ashley dolls and video games while you were at it.
See? Perfect marketing. Today we're going to take a look at these movies, including MK and Ash's last film, which was released in theaters as a final coup de grace. So here it is, every Mary-Kate and Ashley movie ranked.
