Plot synopsis

Twin girls Jessica and Susie (Mary-Kate and Ashley) live with their father (Patrick Cassidy) in the city. One day, they receive a letter from their grandmother Natty (Peg Phillips) inviting them to a dude ranch. Natty, not knowing about their mother's death, wants their mother to come help her at the ranch. Natty is having financial problems because the ranch has too few paying visitors and, although she has offers, Natty does not want to sell the ranch. The girls and their father go to the ranch and attempt to help Natty. At the ranch the girls attempt to prevent a real estate developer from taking possession of the ranch. However, Natty's son Bart (Martin Mull) keeps getting in the way of their plans. They have adventures and learn about their family history through the diary of their deceased mother.



How the West Was Fun was filmed in the Canadian Rockies, one hour west of Calgary, Alberta at Rafter Six Ranch Resort. Shots in the city were done within Calgary, including a ride on Calgary Transit's C-Train.
