Storyline

Amanda Lemmon is a street-wise orphan who's about to be adopted by a family who uses children for their own selfish gain. Her case worker, Diane, loves her and would like to adopt her, however, since she's single and doesn't have money, she is unable to do so. Alyssa Callaway is a rich girl home from boarding school for the summer and she and her dad, Roger, go to their summer home. There, he tells her that he is marrying Clarice, a child hating gold digger. During an attempt to run away, Alyssa stumbles upon a summer camp where she runs into Amanda, who looks EXACTLY like her. The two then switch places to get rid of Clarice and unite Roger and Diane. Written by Theresa

great film
25 July 2003 | by (cleveland,england) – See all my reviews

I thought that this movie was excellent. The twins made a really great job considering they were only 8 years old. I'd really recommend this video to anyone. The video is basically about two identical strangers Amanda Lemmon and Alyssa Calaway. Alyssa is this kid whose life is so perfect as her dad is rich. Were as Amanda is an orphan And looking for a new home. On this particular day Amanda is out with her friends and the come across Alyssa's house (which is really big) and starts saying that its haunted so as a bet Amanda goes to check it out. Anyway back at the Calaway house Alyssa decides to run away. So when Amanda goes to the house the butler thinks its Alyssa and brings her in. well from then on the two actually meet and swap places. Any way you'll just have to watch the video to find out what happens next.
