Ever since their first appearances as infants on Full House back in the 90s, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were consistently in the spotlight for over a decade.
Growing up, young and teenage girls looked up to the twins during the late 90s through the mid-2000s with their brand, movies and clothing lines. The pair had their own Barbie dolls, comforter sets and perfumes – they were everywhere.
However, after Mary-Kate was diagnosed with an eating disorder in 2004 the two slowly started to diminish from the paparazzi’s spotlights and stayed out of the tabloids. The 28-year-old sisters became successful fashion designers and eventually retired from the movie-making industry in order to focus more on their high fashion labels.
To remember the days of films like Passport to Paris and Billboard Dad, TheCelebrityCafe.com is counting down our favorite Mary-Kate and Ashley movies beginning when they were babies with the Full House days to their very last full-length film.

10. Double Trouble Toil and Trouble
This was definitely creepier when we were kids but Mary-Kate and Ashley make adorable witches in this 1993 Halloween movie.

9. It Takes Two
The typical movie of a child trying to bring a family together (sounds familiar to The Parent Trap doesn’t it?) was a funny romantic comedy starring the twins alongside Steve Guttenberg and Kirstie Alley from 1995.

8. Winning London
Mary-Kate and Ashley were known for their cheesy straight-to-VHS movies that took place across the Atlantic. In this 2001 film, the twins fly to study abroad in London and, of course, find love.

7. When in Rome
Instead of study abroad, the duo travels to Italy to work. Another unrealistic situation but the scenery in this 2002 movie was great.

6. Holiday in the Sun
Holiday in the Sun made the number six spot on the list because although the acting wasn’t Oscar worthy, it was Megan Fox’s first film appearance.

5. The Little Rascals
They didn’t have a huge part in this one but The Little Rascals is a classic and they had cameo in it so it definitely had to make the list at number five.

4. Passport to Paris
The acting still wasn’t great in 1999 but the Olsen twins set the bar high for any young fashionista wanting to travel to Paris – and wear the same fashions that they did.

3. Our Lips Are Sealed
In 2000 the twins apparently had to be brought into the witness protection program… in Australia. This one definitely had more action and adventure than the others.

2. Billboard Dad
The twins set up a dating ad for their father in this 1998 comedy topping at number two on our list.

1. New York Minute
Although it didn’t do too well at the box office, New York Minute is number one on our list for all of the celebrity appearances this movie featured. Some names that appeared alongside the Olsen’s were Eugene Levy, Darrell Hammond, Bob Saget, Jack Osbourne and Simple Plan.
