Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Adam Goldberg
Disney's original Parent Trap was a small but successful comedy that cleverly toyed with split-screen effects and launched the career of actress Hayley Mills. The 1998 version utilizes a strikingly similar story line, attempting to rearrange the puzzle pieces in a much more slick and stylish package. The film is refashioned by director Nancy Meyers and producer Charles Shyer, the dynamic duo responsible for Private Benjamin and the hilarious 1991 remake of Father of the Bride; unfortunately, this effort isn't nearly as engaging as their past ones. The remake of the Parent Trap is another example of Disney self-cannibalization for profit, but this updated film doesn't break any new and exciting ground. While budding young actress Lindsay Lohan gives an energetic performance and the split-screen "twin" effects are seamless, she uses an unconvincing British accent and fails to make Hallie and Annie seem like two different people. The Parent Trap does have sporadically amusing moments, however, most notably a farcical sequence in a hotel lobby. Meyers and Shyer are two filmmakers that specialize in warm-hearted domestic comedies, and although this Disney retread may be grating on adults, it is still a mildly entertaining family picture that will entertain young audiences.

This movie is nothing short of awesome. Two twin sisters, seperated at birth, meet at camp, with the idea to switch places and reunite their parents. But it looks like Dad has a girlfriend. Can the girls break it up, or will their dream never come true? I was amazed at how much better the remake is than the original.

I LOVE THIS MOVIE!I EVEN SAW THE 1961 FILM!

This movie will never grow old. Yes, it's funny and cute, but it also addresses the feelings and dreams of a lot of kids over generations whose parents divorce - twins or not. When the original came out in the early 60's, I watched it because I had the hots for Haley Mills since we are about the same age. Now, I can really relate it to the kids I met and taught over the past 35 years. Kids of divorce parents over generations can relate - and the fantasy happy ending is what most of them dream of. A little fantasy is good for everyone!! A great film.
