Updated remake of Disney's 1961 family film about long-separated identical twins, Hallie and Annie (both played by Lohan), who meet accidentally at camp and decide to reunite their divorced parents. Quaid is Napa vineyard-owning dad while Richardson is London fashion designer mom. The twins switch places and foil gold digging publicist Meredith (Hendrix) in order to get their parents back together. Since it's both Disney and a remake, you can assume that it works. However, it's doubtful that parents that don't even tell their kid that they have a twin are going to be winning any PTA awards. "Let's Get Together," the song that the guitar strummin' Hayley Mills made popular with the original, makes a cameo in an elevator.

The 1998 move of The Parent Trap was a huge hit. The movie has a run time of 128 minutes, with a rating of PG. Hallie Parker and Annie James (Lindsay Lohan) are identical twins, which were separated when they were very young after their parents divorced. Hallie went with her father, Nick (Dennis Quaid), and Annie went with her mother, Elizabeth (Natasha Richardson). The twins reunite while at a summer camp. There, they both decide to switch places to meet their other parent. Once, Annie gets home to her dads, she finds that he is engaged to a woman who is only after his money. Now it’s up to Annie and Hallie to reunite their parents and get them back together before Nick marries the wrong woman.

The Parent Trap used to be one of my favorite Disney movies. I would love to have a twin. The Parent Trap is about two young girls who go to summer camp and find out they are twins. Their parents separated when they were very young and never told the twins about one another. So the two girls make a plan to get their parents back together. The movie is full of great comedy. I'd say this movie is a great movie for kids. If your into fun Disney movies, then this is the movie for you!
