The Only Vibe I’m Chasing This Summer? The Olsen Twins On Vacation in the Early Aughts

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen turned 35 yesterday (Gemini twin alert!), which is shocking since it feels like just yesterday that I was sitting cross-legged on my living room floor and watching them go on a series of increasingly luxe vacations in films like Holiday in the Sun, Passport to Paris, and When in Rome.

All of these movies are top-shelf, but to be honest, When in Rome wants what The Lizzie McGuire Movie has—even though it came out first!—and Passport to Paris? Kind of a snooze. The MK & Ash movie that I favor above all others is 2001’s Holiday in the Sun, which revolves around the twins heroically making peace with being taken on a trip to the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas by their parents instead of going to Hawaii with their friends.

The movie itself is full of romantic reversals, weird shots of dolphins, and a gorgeous and extremely important cameo from Megan Fox (who can forget the immortal line: “My name is Brianna Wallace, and I get what I want”?), but what really sticks with me, two decades later, is the style.
