The Parent Trap
Twice the Fun, Double the Trouble.
Hallie Parker and Annie James are identical twins separated at a young age because of their parents' divorce. unknowingly to their parents, the girls are sent to the same summer camp where they meet, discover the truth about themselves, and then plot with each other to switch places. Hallie meets her mother, and Annie meets her father for the first time in years.
why the FUCK is this movie ALWAYS ON whenever i turn on the tv
Here's the thing: this movie is ABSURD. Let's start at the beginning.
-Dennis Quaid and Natasha Richardson (Nick and Elizabeth) meet on a cruise ship and get married after only a few days because common sense.
-It seems that Elizabeth moves from her hometown of London, England, to Napa, California to be with Nick. Sure, whatever, Napa is cool. Wine and stuff.
-They are married for an unspecified length of time and then have twin girls named Hallie and Annie (or Susan and Sharon, in the original Hayley Mills version, which is also absurd, but has musical numbers).
-When the girls are babies, Nick and Elizabeth decide to divorce. Fine. We all saw that one coming.
-Instead of being rational…
ya know what? the pretty woman who just wanted to marry the dad for his money was the real victim of this movie. she just wants the money... give it to her...
The rule is that you have to watch this every time it comes on TV
May we never forget a time when Lindsay Lohan was still wonderful and the idol of red headed girls everywhere.
This film has so many plot holes you could drive a 747 through them, but I could care less. Who cares about the fact that everyone at the camp is ridiculous for not realising these two are identical twins right away and, you know, getting a counsellor or two in there to deal with this traumatic turn of events? Who cares that these parents were so selfish they never, ever spoke to or saw their other daughter, never a phone call or a postcard or anything? Who cares that if you found out that your parent had been keeping this…
Lindsay Lohan invented twins

When Cute girls try stopping their step mom's plans
Thanks for staving off my separation anxiety induced panic attack young Lindsay Lohan
OKAY none of the things that happen in this movie make any sense whatsoever (also by all standards what kind of SUBPAR PARENTING is on display throughout the entire thing) also literally every character will surely need copious amounts of therapy following the events of the film but I feel like I just witnessed a real Classic™ here even though I had no clue this was a remake in the first place. So, to sum up: where is my long lost British twin sister
Cute and charming, a perfectly serviceable kids film. Lohans english accent is bad, but its understandable considering its her first film. Not much to offer if youre not a kid really, but it had a couple of laughs.
