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

Did You Know?
The first draft of the script by Deborah Dean Davis
was never read by director Andy Tennant
. The second writer Jeff Schechter
's draft made this a "go" picture with Rysher Entertainment. Tennant was hired, and offered help for the picture's problems. He and his writing partner Rick Parks rewrote Schecter's draft. Tennant and Parks were rewritten by the producers Cruickshank. The studio preferred Tennant and Parks' draft with notes, so Tennant and Parks took another pass. The WGAW ruled against any other writer's credits due to biased by-laws which disallowed writers/directors with partners from receiving credits on features unless in extreme circumstances. None of Davis' dialogue was used. See more
