Plot synopsis[edit]

Set in Los Angeles, California this film revolves around Emily Tyler (Ashley Olsen), a surfer-girl, and her identical twin sister, Tess (Mary-Kate Olsen), a member of a high-diving team. The movie follows the two sisters as they try various stratagems to get their widower father, Max (who is a talented artist and sculptor) a girlfriend. After their first attempts end in failure, Tess and Emily team up with their friend Cody to paint an advertisement on a giant billboard situated high above Sunset Boulevard. Eventually, a woman named Debbie answers the ad, and brings along her friend Brooke as a back-up. Brooke and Max coincidentally meet and take a liking to each other and Debbie agrees they should start dating. At first, Tess and Emily don't like Brooke's son, Ryan, but when an elaborate scheme by Max's business manager, Nigel, to break up the romantic relationship between Max and Brooke arises, Ryan and the girls learn to put aside their differences in order to foil the break-up plan.[1]
