    Synopsis


    The Parent Trap
    The husband-and-wife team of Nancy Meyers and Charles Shyer, who scored with their 1991 remake of the 1950 Father of the Bride, returned for this updating of the 1961 comedy about twins who hope to bring their divorced parents back together. Sheyer and Meyers stayed close to the original screenplay by David Swift, based on Erich Kastner's book Das Doppelte Lottchen. At a summer camp in Maine, 11-year-old Hallie Parker (Lindsay Lohan) meets Annie James (also Lindsay Lohan). Despite a curious resemblance, Hallie develops an immediate dislike for Annie, and the feeling is mutual. However, the two eventually discover they are twin sisters separated not long after they were born. Their parents, Elizabeth (Natasha Richardson) and Nick (Dennis Quaid), had met on the Queen Elizabeth 2 and married on that same voyage. After a divorce, Nick brought up Hallie at his Napa Valley vineyard, while Annie lived with wedding-gown designer Elizabeth in London. Neither twin was aware she had a sister, until their summer-camp meeting. To learn more about their parents, they switch places and maintain the deception until Nick states he will remarry. The twins then try to engineer a renewed romance between Nick and Elizabeth, but Nick's annoying but attractive fiancee Meredith (Elaine Hendrix) presents a major problem in reaching their happy-ending goal. Hayley Mills portrayed the twins in the 1961 original and subsequent TV-movie sequels: In The Parent Trap II (1986), the twins are adults with their own romantic problems. In The Parent Trap III (1989), the twins compete for a widower (Barry Bostwick), the father of triplets, and that same year, the twins also returned in Parent Trap Hawaiian Honeymoon (1989). ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

      I'm embarrassed to admit I got this Disney new-classic for myself as much as the kids. I love it. It is a thousand times better than the original, I promise. The musical score by Alan Silvestri is wonderful...one of his best. And Lindsay Lohan was so precious, back when she was that age. :-)

      when i was 12 years old this movie was my favorite movie ever. the twins are both just soooo cool, and when you are 12, you want to be just like them. so if you are looking to purchase this as a family movie, DO IT. Everybody will have fun watching it.

      One of my favorite movies. Lindsay Lohan before she hit those troubled teenage years. I have laughed along with this movie for years. Perfect film for a rainy day with adults and kids alike.

      My elderly 86 yr old mother watches the 1950 version, then this one each day. When I ask her what she wants to watch, she says "put the twins on".

      I like the vacuum cleaner, because it is easy to use. Goes under furniture. Easy to clean out lint. Easy to use attachments.
