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.

Writer and director Nancy Meyers handpicked Lindsay Lohan to play the dual role of the twins in the film, and phoned the Lohan household herself to inform the actress that she had landed the part. See more »
When Elizabeth is packing for her trip to meet Nick and switch back the two girls, Hallie comes into Elizabeth's room and tells her that she just talked to Nick and that he's excited to see her. After Elizabeth starts to freak out about the fact that Nick is "excited" to see her, she tells Hallie to go ask/see her "grandmafather." You can clearly tell that she says that and you can tell she realizes she said it because she turns around really quickly. See more »

I'll tell you what I'm gonna do. I'll make you a little deal: *loser* jumps into the lake after the game.
Even more excellent. Start unzipping, Parker.

Straight, in diamonds.
You're good James... but... you're just not good enough.

In your honor, a royal flush.

This may look "a film for kids", but this movie really is, a must-see for both adults and kids. It is a great love story. I'm single but the film reached my heart - I'm sure married couples will love this film too.
When I saw this for the first time, I was on airplane. I was lucky enough to get upgraded that time, so I was with personal video screen - I saw _The parent trap_ twice and cried several time in each of the viewing. Now I got DVD for it, I saw it more than dozen times by now. I feel very happy after every viewing of the film.
Lindsay Lohan did it super (especially accents), dad and mom are really lovely.
If the film comes to a theater near you, don't miss it. On big screen you can find some additional details DVD/Video. The film is totally, and completely lovely.
