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.
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.
Lindsay Lohan plays not one, but two lovable scamps? One is English and one is American? They pull all sorts of pranks to try and get their parents back together? Sign me the fuck up.
Turns out the whole 'double act' thing gets a bit tiresome as soon as all the people at the camp are too fucking stupid to realise that these kids that are literally identical aren't possibly related? And I'm no parent, but even if you had identical twins you'd be able to tell that the kid that came back from camp was just some other child doing a shit accent? Also, considering this is supposed to be a kids film, is waaaaaay too long.
But other than that, wholesome family fun.
Lohan displays her talents but the film is not without it's problems. Fun for the most part.
She used to be so cute... ;_;
It's like IT TAKES TWO, but not as perfect.
I feel like a traitor to the child I was growing up when I say this, but I think I actually like this remake more than the Hayley Mills original. Now the difference is only slight because this is nearly a scene-by-scene remake of the original. So it's not that I dislike the first, in fact when the remake rolled around I was dead set against it because the original seemed good enough that a remake would be pointless. To some this remake may indeed be pointless since it is almost an identical twin in plot, characters, even many scripted lines. So why do I find myself enjoying it more?
First of all it's Lindsey Lohan. I'm sad that all…
Oh little Lindsay Lohan! So adorable. I love this movie. Hi jinx and hilarity. The weirdest thing to me is that, in the beginning of the movie, the twins really do look different from one another...which is obviously crazy because it is the same person.
One of my favorite childhood movies.
i still have that handshake memorized
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.
Well its a Disney movie. A fun feel good family movie which takes lots of liberties in the storyline along the way. For a 11 year old, Lindsay Lohan does a wonderful job.
This is one of my favourite kids films even though the plot line is slightly ridiculous and would not happen in real life.
I've been watching this film like there was no tomorrow when I was young (approximately 12/13 year ago), but have also seen it a few months ago, and it was still an amazing experience. Maybe because of the youth memories and maybe not. Love Lindsay Lohan & Lindsay Lohan though.
