Double, Double, Toil and Trouble is a family-friendly Halloween movie from 1993 starring Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen as twin sisters named Kelly and Lynn Farmer. The sisters are mischievous and always up for a good adventure, but they are also quite different in personality. Kelly is brave and determined, while Lynn is more hesitant and cautious.

The movie begins with the girls attending a Halloween party at their school. At the party, they hear a spooky legend about an evil woman named Aunt Agatha, who was known for tricking people and hoarding treasure. Legend has it that Aunt Agatha had a twin sister named Sophia, who was kind and good-hearted. The story goes that Sophia was unjustly banished to the woods by her evil twin sister, and was never seen again.

Later that night, Kelly and Lynn's parents receive a notice that their mortgage is overdue and that they risk losing their home. Their father, who is a struggling businessman, is unable to come up with the money to pay off the debt, so he and the girls' mother decide to sell their store.

Determined to help their family stay afloat, Kelly and Lynn set out to find Aunt Agatha's treasure. They hope that the treasure will be enough to pay off their parents' debt, and they believe that Sophia's ghost might be able to help them find it.

In their search for the treasure, the girls enter the woods where Sophia was banished, and they find a mysterious house. Inside the house, they meet Aunt Agatha herself, who is now an old woman played by Cloris Leachman. Agatha welcomes the girls inside, but they soon realize that she is not the friendly old woman she appears to be. Aunt Agatha has a sinister plan to use the girls' youth and vitality to restore her own youth and beauty.

As Kelly and Lynn try to escape from Aunt Agatha, they are aided by Sophia's ghost, who appears to them in various forms (including a bird and a dog). With Sophia's help, the girls uncover the truth about the treasure and the sisters' past. They ultimately defeat Aunt Agatha and find the treasure, saving their family's home in the process.

The movie is a classic children's adventure, with plenty of spooky moments and a heartwarming message about family and loyalty. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are charming and endearing as the twin sisters, and Cloris Leachman is delightfully evil as Aunt Agatha. The movie also features a talented supporting cast, including Eric McCormack (of Will & Grace fame) and Phil Fondacaro. The film's themes of sisterhood, courage, and perseverance make it a great choice for families to watch together around Halloween time.

Overall, Double, Double, Toil and Trouble is a fun and whimsical movie that captures the magic of Halloween. The Olsen twins bring their characteristic energy and charisma to the film, and the movie's themes of family and loyalty make it a heartwarming adventure for viewers of all ages.

Double, Double, Toil and Trouble is a 1993 kids & family movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 33 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.8.
