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.
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…
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.
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?
It was great and I really liked it. I liked the characters a lot, I thought both the girls were awesome. I enjoyed the start where they were in the cabin together, just them. How they realized they were twins was really funny and happy. I also liked how the mother and father got confused about what kid was which. I would like to see this movie when I am older with my kids and wife!
I cried watching this on a train and it was really embarrassing.
"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.
Back when Lindsay Lohan could still act. The best compliment I can pay LiLo as a child actress is that I forgot it was one actress playing two parts. It's a cute family movie.
one of my fav!
Ok Remake that could have been much worse.
LiLo lit up the screen.
I'm a major fan of the original and was disappointed by the lack of mid century californian ranch and boston, and the lack of songs. but the soundtrack was still aces and some of my favourite lines of dialogue were still used.
overall, it was a pleasure to watch.
I've watched this one so many times that I know all the lines by heart. One of my absolute favorites while growing up. Travel back to a time when Lindsay Lohan was sweet and innocent and let yourself be charmed by this heartwarming, fun flick.
My daughter recently watched this on Netflix, so I watched it with her, seeing as how I'd only previously watched sporadic scenes. No really. Okay, I'm also a sucker for anything Nancy Meyer and this Disney remake of a Disney flick is an easy watch. Lohan is pretty great, as she was up until "Mean Girls", but watching Richardson here reminds me of her loss. As far as remakes of remakes go, this one trying anything terribly new nor is it terrible.
a film I will always, always rewatch
Film #2 of my Hanging Out with Disney project
(From The Parent Trap soundtrack; www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TQHtOJzxE0)
A remake of Walt Disney's 1961 classic starring Hayley Mills (and one that almost made the list on my project), this remake stars Lindsay Lohan, in her film debut, as two identical twin girls who meet in a girls' summer. camp. Though initially mean to one another, they eventually realize they're twins and the fact that their parents spilt them up when they were babies as part of the divorce agreements. Wanting the family back together, the two agree to switch places to meet the parent they never met, eventually leading up to the point where they have to meet and fall in love again…
The Parent Trap (a remake of the 1961 film of the same name) is one of those flicks that I, as a child, would always find on some random TV channel, yet never really got around to watching it. It’s perhaps most famous for putting Lindsay Lohan on the map, as she plays two estranged twin girls with divorced parents who find each other by sheer coincidence at summer camp. The rest of the movie focuses on their heedless attempts to get their parents back together, with typical Disney-style subplots and supporting characters along the way. I was surprised to find that I enjoyed…
