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.
A Lindsay Lohan comedy for some reason always manages to make me smile.
I might be the only person who is truly sad she derailed herself and her career so much.
No matter how cheesy the film might come off, it is simply joyful and entertaining.
No twists, it knows how it is going to end, and it gets there.
There is simply something earnest and sincere about seeing two twins who never knew the other existed trying to get their parents back together.
It is clear their parents long for each other and still have feelings toward each other, which make us truly care and hope everything works so well.
Yes, the film is a bit too sentimental with its score and family scenes, but it manages to be funny and touching.
Far from perfect, The Parent Trap has Lohan at one of her career's hights and it simply a delight to watch.
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…
Jesus these kids are annoying. Also why are both parents content with only seeing one kid? Don't they want to see both their children?
"And introducing Lindsay Lohan"
A phrase fraught with sad significance now, though she isn't yet at Bobby Driscoll levels of tragic child-star trajectory. If this isn't Lohan's best role, it's certainly her most well-acted, as she juggles playing two distinct personalities quite brilliantly for someone so young. She carries the film with a breezy charm that manages to make up for its more overt flaws, like being a half-hour too long.
If you could bottle whatever Nancy Meyers movies are made of, I would spritz it directly in my face every single day.
Wow, a great film from years back that is such a guilty pleasure, This gave Lindsay Lohan a career she just evidently just through away a couple of years back, but it won't change anything of course, a great film though that is a great tale, in more ways than one has great characters you are able to relate to, a long film sort of, things are slow to start with then perk up towards half way in. Good, good movie.
This movie disturbs me more and more each time I watch it. How can these parents be content with just one of their children in their lives? How can they live with the knowledge that they deprived their girls of the joys of sisterhood? They have two unbelievably forgiving kids, who take the news surprisingly well and also take it relatively easy on them. They don't deserve one impossibly adorable Lindsay Lohan for a child, let alone two.
It is what it is.
This is still a great family movie. Lohan does an awesome job playing the two roles and Quaid and Richardson help make a silly concept fairly believable.
I think I've seen this movie about 8,000 times. This movie is one I grew up on. I remember I went to sleep away camp when I was about 9 or 10 and I honestly watched this on my little DVD player every night until I fell asleep. This was my comfort movie. It made me feel like I wasn't alone. I even taught my younger sister the handshake when I was about 13. I'm pretty sure I know every word to this movie and I have no shame. This movie is definitely top 5.
Really cute. I haven't watched this since I was a kid and I was surprised to find myself enjoying it as an adult. The warmth provided mainly by the actors earns the cheesy, sentimental streak throughout the film. Just sweet, escapist fun.
Come back when you were cute and talented..
really cheesy but cute
I remember seeing this film back when it first came out in 1998. Of course, I was still a kid back then, so this film is different as an adult. It’s sad to see Lindsay Lohan now, because she was so adorable as a kid. Also, Natasha Richardson is heartbreakingly beautiful, and its sad to think that she’s no longer with us.
As an adult, I notice that the camera trickery they use to show Lohan next to herself isn’t always perfect. Sometimes Lohan isn’t quite looking at herself, she’s looking off to the side. The movie works best when they’re not in the same frame.
For a Disney movie, it’s one that parents can enjoy with their kids. And…
