When two pre-teens named Hallie & Annie meet through their summer camp, their two lives are rattled when they realize that they are identical twins. With parents, British mother aka famous dress designer Elizabeth & American father, a wine maker named Nick, living in two different sides of the universe, the girls decide to make an identity swap in hopes of spending time with their other parent. The girls later choose to aware their guardians of the swap while at a hotel in NYC, which late reunites the divorced pair and sends them back into remarriage with each other.
During the 'booby-trapped cabin' scene where the water balloon is dropped onto Annie's head, Lindsay Lohan required a needle fastened into her hair so the balloon popped quickly. The balloon was so heavy that simply dropping it then hitting Lindsay (aka Annie) would not have been likely to pop it. This seemingly fun and silly stunt was actually very dangerous, risking serious neck injuries from too much weight (force) coming down on top of Lindsay's head and neck. See more »

Oh, sure, I love Oreos. At home, I eat them with... I eat them with peanut butter.
You do? That is so weird.

So do I!
You're kidding! Most people find that totally disgusting.
I know, I don't get it.

I have to say, I couldn't stand the original Parent Trap, but maybe that's because I saw this version first. Either way, the new Parent Trap is a great film and the perfect film to see with the family. When I saw it, I knew it would wind up in my family's library, and that it did, as soon it was available. Charming, funny, even romantic. I actually had a few tears at the end! The cast is great, Lindsey Lohan is funny and adorable, just likable, and unlike the original parents, Dennis Quaid and Natasha Richardson are excellent and seem like great parents. See it with any kids that you care about, everyone in every age category will like this film.
