Product Description

Product Description

In their newest direct-to-video, Mary-Kate and Ashley embark on a Survivor-style adventure in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico! Estranged teen sisters who live on opposite sides of the country are brought together as teammates in the TV show, "The Challenge", much to their surprise. In order to win the grand prize - college scholarships - they'll need to reconcile their differences, work together, and keep their romances a secret from the producers all at the same time!

Amazon.ca

Combining the effervescent Olsen twins with the sizzling popularity of a Survivor-style reality show, The Challenge is a seemingly perfect concoction for Mary Kate and Ashley fans. In this G-rated jaunt, the perky twins play Shane and Lizzie, two estranged sisters who are unwittingly cast together to compete as teammates in seven grueling contests. Residing on separate coasts after their parent's divorce, the girls are polar opposites: Lizzie is ambitious and high-strung, while Shane is a tree-hugging vegetarian. Now in Mexico, they will eat, sleep, and socialize as one while a ruthless producer hopes the ensuing sibling controversy will spike the show's ratings. Amid the daring feats and romantic entanglements, the twins realize that their greatest challenge will be to accept each other's differences. If viewers overlook the painfully contrived plot and deplorable acting, the result is a clean, family film that goes no deeper than a pretty face. (Ages 7 to 12) --Lynn Gibson

The film The Challenge is Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's last direct to video film before going to the big screen with New York Minute. In the movie the Challenge, Mary-Kate Olsen plays the character of Shane. A relaxed girl who doesn't eat meat, likes yoga, and is pro-nature. Ashley Olsen plays the character of Lizzie. Lizzie has very high goals for herself, she likes things to go smoothly (she's never ever late for anything), enjoys steak (opp. for Shane), and is basically a perfectionist. When the two girls meet they are shock, but both decide to stay because of the prize at stake-a college scholarship. The show's rules are curfew by ten and no romantic entanglements. As in all the other films, the girl's characters meet boys which they become interested in. I liked the idea for the movie because its original and something different from what the girls usually do. The film is pretty entertaining. It does a good job is mixing humor, romance, and adventure. The only reason why the film gets four stars instead of five stars is because the challanges they do are a bit on the easy side. However, the film has so many fun things in it, that it helps compensate. Also, without giving away too much information, the ending of the film is great. It wraps up Mary-Kate and Ashley's home video series with a song and clips and it even takes on a hilarious take from past films. The movie is worth renting if not owning. Hope this review helps.

Format: DVD
"The Challenge" continues (and perhaps wraps-up???) the Olsen twins direct to video line of franchise movies, this time taking the girls to Mexico for a "Survivor-esque" reality game show.
THE STORY:
Shane and Lizzie Dalton (Mary-Kate and Ashley) are estranged sisters who unknowingly enter the same "Reality Game Show" competition for college scholarship money where, among other things, they have to learn to tolerate each other, compete in "Survivor-esque" contests, battle "evil" TV producers and of course, work through boyfriend problems. In the end the girls learn the meaning of family.
THE ANALYSIS:
All in all, this is definitely one of the best Olsen twins efforts and marks a fitting end to their "pre-adulthood" films and direct-to-video line. While the "Faux-Survivor" bit was a little cheesy at first, the action is top-notch for a "family" film courtesy of all the outrageous "Survivor"-type challenges and the message of family the film shares is just awesome. In a strange but appropriate nod at the end of the film the girls and characters "break character" to acknowledge the twins past accomplishments and a montage of the girls in their films throughout the years make an appropriate end to not only this movie but their "pre-adulthood" career.
THE DVD SPECIAL FEATURES:
Like most Olsen DVDs you've got a stuffed DVD features section, but unfortunately most of it is fluff. Included in the DVD special features are:
1. Behind the Scenes featurette: 7 1/2 minute featurette where the cast and crew (primarily the twins) talk about the movie and their experiences filming it.
2. Trailers: The Multi-million dollar Olsen marketing machine was in full force here!!!

About The Challenge:
"The Challenge was filmed in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. It's about a group of kids
who are in a teen survivor-type game, competing for collage scholarships.
Mary-Kate and Ashley play sisters who do not like each other. Their parents are
divorced and one girl lives with their father in Washington while the other
lives with their mother in Los Angeles. Unfortunately they get put on the same
team with a group of other kids, and Mary-Kate and Ashley are constantly
fighting. They have to learn to work together or they'll blow it for everybody.
Of course they learn to get along with each other by the end of the movie! "It
was a nice twist on the roles Mary-Kate and I usually play," Ashley says. "It
was kind of fun to have a conflict between us." "I really liked the Survovor
aspect of the whole thing," Mary-Kate says. "And there's a cool surprise at the
end," she adds. "But I don't want to give it away. You'll have to see it for
yourself!"

While I found this movie more enjoyable than their last two, When In Rome and Getting There, it still does not come close to being as good as earlier titles such as Holiday in the Sun and Winning London.
The story revolves around a group of teens divided into two teams on a TV game show, basically an exact replica of Survivor (the only difference is that they're competing for college scholarships). Mary Kate and Ashley play twins each living seperatly with one parent,with very different lifestyles, one is goal driven while the other is laid back.
The plot is predictable and semi enjoyable, with the usual romance and adventure everyone has come to expect from these movies. The only part of this film that I truly enjoyed was the very end, which will surely crack up any fan.

The movie, while slightly better than previous titles, was mediocre. Mary-kate and Ashley are capable of much more than the lame movies theyre spitting out 2x a year. The scenery is gorgeous however, and the end is simply hysterical, and if you're a true MK&A fan you'll understand why. It ended like this:
Shane and Lizzie both claimed to love their new guys, and then all of a sudden, out of no where appear the guys from previous movies that they supposedly fall in love with. Each guy claims to be madly in love with them and the effect is pretty funny. Other than that, the movie wasnt that great. Recommended for ages 8-12
