Trivia

In the scene where the twins are fighting with the light switches in the isolation cabin, the wall behind Annie has the text "Vicky loves Nicky" written with a pen on the wood, a reference to the later revealed relationship between Meredith and Nick, where Vicky, Meredith's mother is more than happy about it.

Goofs

In the final scene at the hotel, when Hallie and Annie tell their parents they want to go on the camping trip, the one on the left is missing her right earring. It should have been easy for the audience to tell them apart as the twin who had her ears pierced at camp was shown to have sore ears around the earring, notably in the scene where they're on the phone just before Hallie is discovered.

Quotes

Annie: Need a hand, Mer?
Meredith Blake: Not from you, thank you. Don't think I can see past those angelic faces. One more trick from you two, and I promise I'll make your lives miserable from the day I say "I do." Got it?
Hallie: Got it, Cruella.
Meredith Blake: What did you call me?
Hallie: Nothing. Nothing. Not a thing, Cruella. Oh, by the way, Mer. I think there's something on your head.

Wonderful!
4 July 2003 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Wonderful remake of the 1961 Hayley Mills film. This film is much more realistic, with better acting. Lindsey Lohan is amazing as both Hallie and Annie--I really did think she was two people, she portrayed the two different charactars fantastically. All the different charactars in this movie are really funny as well, and there are no bad actors. The plot just zips by! I give this movie 10/10.
