Synopsis


The Parent Trap
We get a double dose of Hayley Mills in this Disney vehicle: she plays 13-year-old identical twins Susan and Sharon, who meet for the very first time in summer camp. They soon learn that they were separated at a very early age when their parents Mitch and Maggie (Brian Keith and Maureen O'Hara) divorced. On a lark, the girls switch places: the one living with Mitch goes back home with Maggie, and vice versa. Mitch is planning to remarry the "wrong woman," vituperative Vicky (Joanna Barnes). The twins conspire to reunite their parents, but the road to reconciliation is rough indeed. It takes a slapsticky camping trip to get rid of the troublesome Vicky and to prompt Mitch and Maggie to renew their vows. The film introduced a hit song, "Let's Get Together," which represented the high point of Hayley Mills' very short-lived recording career. The Parent Trap was based on Das Doppelte Lottchen, a novel by Erich Kastner, which had previously been filmed in German and British versions (real twins were cast in both); over thirty years after Parent Trap was theatrically released, a short series of sequels were made for the Disney Channel cable service, with a grown-up Mills back in her original role(s), and two sets of second-generation twins. Baby Boom collaborators Nancy Meyers and Charles Shyer would remake the film with a new cast in 1998. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Parent Trap II
Those adorable "twins" from Disney's Parent Trap have grown up and are now encountering similar romantic mix-ups in this made-for-cable-TV sequel. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

    Bought this to replace the VCR tape, not only could we watch and enjoy this movie again, but we got to share it with my grandson. The transfer quality is very good, and just as much fun as I remember. Also got to see the second movie, hadn't seen it before.

    A movie that is far better than the new one that came out. It was the first time I had ever watched the old one and I have to say it may have been from a simpler time but it was a classic.

    I have watched both versions of the "Parent Trap" (this classic and the Lindsay Lohan). I know that the classic one is a lot better than the newer version.

    Great price. Reviewed only the first movie. Consider the second a bonus. This is so much better than the remake. The only thing that makes it dated is the wardrobe.
