Overachiever, 17-year-old Jane (Ashley Olsen) is trying to win the Callahan Fellowship at Oxford. Meanwhile, her twin, Roxy (Mary-Kate Olsen), has taken a different road: she skips school regularly and dreams of making it big singing with her band. All plans appear to be in jeopardy when, in the course of one day, the sisters find themselves in the middle of a black market deal, chased by a truant officer (Eugene Levy), accused of stealing a senator's (Andrea Martin) dog, and pursued by music pirates. A good movie for the 12-year-old set.
