I must admit, I was reluctant to view this film because I am such a great fan of the original (1961, Hayley Mills, Brian Keith and Maureen O'Hara) so I couldnt possibly think this version would be anywhere near as good. After first viewing, I was soon proved wrong because its such a wonderful version which will appeal to many adults and children. Lindsay Lohan making her debut here at the grand young age of 11 years plays the twins Annie and Hallie. They meet by accident at a summer camp and hate each other on sight. When they discover that they are actually twin sisters, they bond, and develop a plan to get their parents, the wonderful Dennis Quaid and the lovely Natasha Richardson back together again. Its a laugh a minute, with a few emotional scenes thrown in for good measure. Although the first version was a great succes, and its still enjoyable today, take this one and accept it on merit. A charming family film which everyone can enjoy.

Yes I enjoyed this version of the film too which contrasts with the earlier version starring Brian Keith. Lindsay Lohan is well chosen for this part and plays 'both of the twins' well. The scenery and lifestyles of the parents are depicted well. The male parent lives in Nappa Valley and the Lady (with her Dressmaking Business - wedding gowns) living with the grandfather in a posh part of London. People watching this will think that the lifestyle depicted for lady (and child) is representative of British culture. Currently is far from it, but is how affluent families would perceive it to be. The lifestyle of the male - a vineyard in the Nappa Valley growing grapes and making wine I think is more realistic...or am I also dreaming? You check it out.

I absolutely love this movie! I could keep watching this over and over again! Definitely one of the best family movies i have ever watched.

I would rate nothing less than 10! The acting is great! The plot is brilliant, and so on.

I love the general story though, about two girls Annie and Hallie, in which meet at a summer camp, unexpectedly, not even realising they are each others sister at first, which becomes a huge shock to them both. The girls are not compatible at all at first, they play a few tricks with each other, not getting along at all. Then later on, when they are put in an isolation cabin together, they begin to get along. But fun starts when both twins make an idea of switching places, Hallie goes to London to meet her mom and Annie goes to California to meet her father, after many years of their parents splitting. However, can they reach their goal of bringing their parents back to together again? Fun and laughter throughout. See it!

Annie is thrilled to be going to camp in America. She is horrified to discover a girl who looks just like her, however. Hallie is equally upset, and they start playing mean tricks on each other. When they are isolated as a result, they get to talking and discover that they are twins. They plot to switch places for two reasons. First, they want to meet their other parent. Second, and more importantly, they hope to reunite their parents. Complications greet Annie as Hallie in California when she discovers that their dad has gotten engaged over the summer. His fiancee is a truly horrid woman who will make everyone's lives miserable. But what can the girls do to change things?
This is pretty much a faithful remake of the original just updated for the 90's. Lindsay Lohan bravely steps into Hayley Mills' famous double roll, and pulls it off with style. This is her big screen debut, and she handles the rolls and the special effects with ease, seeming to switch characters convincingly at will. This is a young actress to watch. Dennis Quaid and Natasha Richardson are wonderful as the parents caught in the trap. They have incredible chemistry. Frankly, I never found the romance in the original that believable, but this movie has romance in spades. There are some truly great comic moments in the film and plenty of subtle hat tips to the original without slowing down the movie.
The DVD is simple, just the movie. This was one of the first films that Disney released in the then new format, so that helps explain the lack of extras. The film does look great in widescreen and sound great in surround, however.
As with any remake, there will be fans of one over the other. Personally, this one edges out the original, but not by much. There is plenty of charm and humor here to entertain without taking a thing away from the original. If you approach with an open mind, you just might find a place in your heart for this one right beside the other.

Wow. I've seen this movie probably 20-plus times, and I never get tired of it. The music is especially wonderful, with many classics from Nat King Cole, Natalie Cole, the Beatles, and others. I have the soundtrack, and it is the bomb. Very cute wardrobes too!!! Lindsay Lohan is a great actress!!!

This version of The Parent Trap is 100 times better than the cheesey film that appeared in the 60s. I always hated that "Let's get together Yeah Yeah Yeah" song with the guitar.
Lindsay Lohan is excellent playing the parts of the twins and both of my daughters and I can sit and watch it time after time. It is touching and always brings a tear to my eye, especially when one of the girls meets their mum for the first time.
I won't go into a review of the story as other reviewers have done a good job, but all the actors are just brilliant and I look forward to seeing Lindsay in her other films.
