Identical twins, separated at birth and each raised by one of their biological parents, discover each other for the first time at summer camp and make a plan to bring their wayward parents back together.
Hallie Parker and Annie James. They look exactly alike and are sisters. It would be awesome for you to be a twin, but what is it like being a twin without even knowing it? That's what it's like for these girls. Hallie is a cool, laid-back gal from California. Annie James is a proper rose from London. Annie has never met her father, and Hallie has never met her mother. When they get thrown into the Isolation Cabin, they uncover the mystery behind the ripped picture. They realize that they are twin sisters seperated at birth by their divorced parents, and they decide to switch places to meet the parent that they've never met. They also decide to get them back together. But then something awful happens that will wreck everything: their father is engaged to a beautiful, selfish witch who's only after their dad's money.

When this movie is shown on Disney Channel, the scenes where Hallie pierces Annie's ears and Annie (as Hallie) taking a sip of the wine are edited out. In addition, "Oh my God" are muted out in some scenes. When Annie (as Hallie) says "Oh my God... Oh my God!", Nick replying to her "Now you're starting to sound like your old self." is muted.

In the beginning of the switch, it begins with Hallie pretending to be Annie. At the end of the scene she says, "Speaking of dad, I wonder what he is doing right now?" But, a flight from the east coast to London is about 7 and a half hours, plus the time change in London, assuming it was noon in London it would be, four in the morning in California. In other words, Nick Parker would have picked Annie (pretending to be Hallie) up from the airport the day before. See more »
I was skeptical at first, but this really was an adorable movie
Beleive you me was i skeptical of this movie. First of all the original is a highly regarded film in my house. If it's on t.v the world stops for it. And beleive me when I first heard about the remake i was very very angry because hardly ever does a remake even compare to the original. I didn't understand it of course. Especially how a movie like that cold work in the 90's. I mean reality check what court, let alone parents, in the world would decide to split up a pair of twins let each parent have one never let them even know about the other one and never let them see each one ever again? Puh-Leeze. But boy was I ever wrong.
This movie has every bit as much charm as the original and it's ending (I won't give it away) makes much more sence than the original, they-just-get-together-without-talking-any-of-there- problems-out original.
And huge props to Lindsy Lohen on the accents. I am very big on accents and was overwhelmed at how good she was. I see big things for her.
So go see it. It's truly captivating.
