Never seen this one, but I hear it's terrible compared to the original with Hayley Mills as Susan and Sharon... but again: I've never seen it so idk for sure.

The Parent Trap is a wonderful, adorable, and funny family film. Two very similar young girls from completely different worlds meet for the first time at camp, only to find out that they are actually twins who have been separated at birth by their divorced parents. Together, they come up with a scheme to get their parents back together. Young Lindsay Lohan does such an amazing job at playing both Hallie and Annie that you can’t even tell that they are played by the same person. 4.5/5 would recommend.

Yes, this is a kids' movie, but like Harry Potter, anyone can play. The storyline is winningly sentimental without trafficking in sticky sweetness. The great attraction for me is how skillfully (then-11-year-old) Lindsay Lohan is able to convey two distinct personalities. You willingly accept that Annie and Hallie are each real and unique--and the movie soars accordingly.

DVD is all scratched up and I had to skip through a few parts. I will bring this to the librarian's attention. This movie should be removed from circulation. Angelfreak101 should have put a note on the movie case about the damaged dvd. Otherwise, it was an okay movie. A new spin on an old movie.

Another American movie in which parents behave inexplicably badly, children are never disciplined for their over-the-top obnoxious/inappropriate behaviour, and interpersonal issues are never examined very closely (c.f. Lizzy Maguire). Somewhat amusing, if only for Lindsay Lohan's fairly credible English accent, which is, oddly, much more certain than that of the late British actress Natasha Richardson. (Too much time spent jetting back and forth between one continent and another, I suppose.) Improbably, Wikipedia describes the movie as a "critical and commercial success". The commercial part I buy, but it strains credulity to imagine this movie as one that would particularly impress the critics. Enjoyable nonetheless. Lindsay Lohan is almost unbearably cute, and provides well-differentiated portraits of identical twins Hallie and Annie. Her acting skills and the real or pseudo-innocence that she displays in the film make me find her current situation all the more heart-rending.
