RANGE ROVERS Susie (Mary-Kate, right) and Jessica (Ashley) go ''West''

Why we'd skip Mary-Kate and Ashley's ''How the West Was Fun''

PREDICAMENT Their late mom's family dude ranch is in trouble, so the Martin twins have to stop troublemaker Max (Martin Mull!) before he turns it into an amusement park.

MARY-KATE PLAYS Susie, leader

ASHLEY PLAYS Jessica, follower

FASHION STATEMENT Straight outta Branson: more fringe, denim, and plaid than you can shake a Stetson at

WHY WE'D SKIP IT While it's cute (and yet strange) to see the toothsome twosome play dress-up, this Western flick is anything but wild. You'd think after eight years on ''Full House,'' the girls would have learned how to deliver their lines convincingly -- their overenunciation, in particular, has us heading for the hills.
