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.
