When in Rome (DVD)
Riding on the success of Mary-Kate and Ashley's popular formula from previous films showcasing London and Paris, this one takes them to Rome as sophisticated working girls. The Olsen twins play fictional sisters Charli and Leila, summer interns at a global fashion and entertainment company. They join four other international students ostensibly to gain business experience, though the job seems more of a cover for their perennial pursuits of shopping, sightseeing, and sizzling romance. They encounter workplace challenges, including a tyrannical boss and derisive coworker, which serve as a backdrop for numerous costume changes for our fashion-forward stars. In the end, teamwork prevails as the interns devise a clever scheme to expose a company criminal. Kudos to the film for depicting Charli and Leila's characters as strong and self-assured young women (too bad they come across excessively materialistic). Despite the seemingly endless self-promotion of Mary-Kate and Ashley, this G-rated film is all in good fun, though there is certainly more fizz than flavor. (Ages 4 to 10) --Lynn Gibson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It's summer and Charlie and Leila Hunter (Mary-Kate and Ashley) earn a summer internship at an International Fashion company in Rome. Once in Rome the girls embark on a rollercoaster ride of adventure as they struggle to keep their jobs, battle off rival interns, thwart a hostile corporate takeover plot and of course engage in Romance with some cute boys.
All in all, "When In Rome" includes all the action, adventure and romance you've come to expect from an Olsen Twins film. It's pure clean fun for the whole family.

Overall, this movie was simply boring. The only good part in this were when you saw the beautiful shots of Rome. "When In Rome" started out with the twins waking up and prancing around their balcony taking pictures. (and they say Ryan is spoiled?) The entire movie consisted Mary-Kate and Ashley starting their internship at a fashion company, getting fired, Palo driving Charli (or is it Leila? Who can tell them apart??) around Rome, the twins meeting their boss who invites them to his beach town (yes, he owns the whole town), Leila meeting Ryan and riding around in his car, their boss and other boss getting together, the twins getting re-hired,and the twins discovering that yet another of their bosses is stealing clothes from the company because he was jealous that the head boss got all the attention.
The only thing that's remotely suspenseful is THE QUESTION. Who will be picked to be an intern next summer and go to New York?? Hmmm... could it be.... MARY-KATE AND ASHLEY??
OK, it might sound like I'm a hater, but I'm not. I liked Billboard Dad, Switching Goals, Passport to Paris, Our Lips Are Sealed, Holiday In the Sun and Winning London (etc.) just fine. I mean, they were terrible movies, but at least they were fun. The only question I have is if they're so "fashion-forward" and are working for a fashion designer company and Charli's fashion sketches are so brilliant, than why do their clothes look like they got them from Goodwill?
You'll see a difference in the girls when you watch this movie. They're a lot more mature. Oh sure, they used those same ingredients from their other films for this one (the names Charli and Leila for their characters, the cool clothes, the cute boys), but Mary-Kate and Ashley also presented something that hasn't been seen as much before. They are shown as strong, well-adjusted young women with direction and good sense. Their acting style is changing for the better. They're getting older. They have, for the most part, given up that annoying giggling and screaming and have become more adult teenagers. This movie shows them as summer interns in Rome, enjoying the sights, the fun, the friends, and the guys. Sounds familiar, I know, but really this one is not as bad as some of their other movies and it is a huge improvement from their last movie "Getting There." I like the positive, more grown-up look of the Olsens, and I have a feeling that even if they stick to the same formula that they've been using, their movies are going to start getting much better. They're talented and beautiful girls who have the potential.
So, all in all, this is the first Olsen movie in a long time that I truly recommend to you.
