The video is a 30 minute short starring Mary-Kate and Ashley as detectives. They look like they were about five years old at the time. Three cowboys hire them to investigate strange things going on at their ranch. It turns out that the Logical I ranch is actually a geological site (there were some letters missing on the map), and the strange goings on were caused by geothermal activity.
Probably the most memorable parts of the show were the songs. "Nothing To Do," "It's Not Logical," and whatever that cowboys song was called were all memorable and catchy, in the sort of way that they are songs you really don't like but find yourself singing.
Something that I notice when I watch this back, which I have been doing about once a week lately, is that no one in this movie really has any talent. Pretty much everything you see on screen, you could reproduce in your back yard. During one musical sequence, the camera cuts back and forth between closeups of the twins singing and the other characters doing silly dances that consist of basically just waving their arms around. That's it. Yet, despite the cheapness of the writing and performances, it has a charm and likability. I know I look forward to watching it again, and some of the preschool boys are absolutely in love with the twins.
My rating: *** out of ****.
