5 June 2016 1:47 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Lindsay Lohan is traveling back in time to her Disney days. Long before the actress was trying to be best friends with Regina George in Mean Girls or getting life advice from Oprah Winfrey on her own docu-series, the 29-year-old nailed the unforgettable roles as twins Hallie Parker and Annie James in The Parent Trap. Almost eighteen years after the Disney movie premiered, Lindsay decided to make a visit to her big-screen home in London. The results may just lead you to spend the rest of your weekend watching the classic film. "A trip down memory lane #sundayfunday," she shared on Instagram.

From Flushed Away and Hunchback to Titan A.E. and Sky High - the family movies that don't get the love they deserve...

When I sit through a film such as Zootropolis, Rango, Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph, Eddie The Eagle or Coraline, I can’t help but be thankful somebody has bothered. As a parent as well as a movie lover, I’ve grown to really dislike family movies that just turn up to act as a surrogate babysitter for 90 minutes, with no intention of becoming anybody’s favourite film. The films I'm going to talk about are the family movies therefore that I think both try and do something a bit more, yet continue to fly under many people's radar. 

A bonus mention before we get going, and number 26 in the list, much to my surprise: Alvin & The Chipmunks 4. I was expecting next to zero from it, courtesy »

Twinsters: Identical Twins Separated at Birth Help Other Adoptees

14 April 2016 2:20 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Identical twin sisters Samantha Futerman and Anais Bordier lived the first 27 years of their lives with no idea the other existed - until December 2012, when Bordier watched a YouTube video and felt as if she was staring back at herself. Bordier found her lookalike's name in the film's credits, and soon learned that the young woman, Samantha Futerman, was also born in Busan, South Korea, on Nov. 19, 1987 - and that she, too, was adopted. "I was shocked," Bordier told People of her discovery. She decided to reach out to the woman via Facebook message, complete with a The Parent Trap »

Orphan Black Season 4 Review

13 April 2016 5:46 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One episode was provided prior to broadcast.

It’s easy to love BBC America’s Orphan Black at face value. And I mean that literally – the show’s selling point is still the central relationship of stalwart drifter Sarah (Tatiana Maslany), effortlessly cool nerd Cosima (Tatiana Maslany), plate-spinning soccer mom Alison (Tatiana Maslany), and psychopath-with-a-heart-of-gold Helena (Tatiana Maslany). If you haven’t seen the show before, those aren’t typos. Maslany plays a growing army of self-aware clones out to discover their true origins, and avoid getting killed off by various hate-spewing religious groups and evolutionary advantageous cults in the process.

It’s a unique, well-spun weirdness that plays straight into the show’s otherwise ordinary stories about murders, government conspiracies, and school theater. Four seasons in, and small revelations have doled out the mythology in satisfying increments, but its logic can be muddled, and its impact on here-and-now plots can be subsequently disappointing. »

Castle Recap: I Dream of Genie

11 April 2016 8:36 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

This week’s episode of Castle was the sort that test some viewers’ patience, diving as deep as “fantasy-augmented” Rick did off the deep end of reality. But if you, like me, are the kind of longtime fan who allows the show a lotta leniency those one or two times a season, you had to appreciate how this episode went all in with the “magic lamp” tale.

Dancing With the Stars Week 4 Recap: Did the Right Couple Go Home?

11 April 2016 7:44 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

It’s fitting that the latest installment of Dancing With the Stars was the series’ annual Disney week, because some routines were absolute beauties, while others were complete beasts.

Tinkerbell dumped heaps of fairy dust on the usual suspects (Nyle Dimarco, Ginger Zee), leaving competitors like Doug Flutie to stumble about like hippos in search of their tutus. Still others, like an exuberant Kim Fields and a stately Von Miller, found their inner zip-a-dee-doo-dah and turned in performances that greatly improved upon previous weeks’ showings.

Once Upon a Time Recap: Ma Belle

10 April 2016 6:52 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

This Sunday on ABC’s Once Upon a Time, Belle pondered a deal with Hades after Gaston started making waves in the Underworld. Meanwhile, Emma and the other heroes tried to fight a future.

What was good about this episode was pretty good, in that the Belle flashbacks answered some questions — including: How did she wind up married to such a tool? The B-story, however, involving Emma in fear of her dream basically idled for 37 minutes, until the final, curious payoff.

Lindsay Lohan Recreates Parent Trap Scene on Dubsmash

18 March 2016 11:42 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Don't you just love it when actors revisit some of their best roles (even if they're from more than a decade ago)? Lindsay Lohan paid homage to one of her best movies, The Parent Trap, in a Dubsmash Thursday and made all our dreams come true. Let's travel back to Camp Walden, a sleep away camp for girls where Annie James and Hallie Parker would meet and learn that their parents separated them when they got divorced. At first, if you recall, they didn't get along, and basically went back and forth pranking each other in order to bring the other down in the ultimate rivalry. "Actually, we're all quite fine in here, unless Hallie Parker knows something we don't know," Lohan's Annie »

Watch: 10-Year-Old Lindsay Lohan in ‘The Parent Trap’

29 January 2016 9:00 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Remember how brilliant Lindsay Lohan was in “The Parent Trap”? More than just little-kid cute, she made portraying two diametrically different twins look easy, using her expressive features and innate charm to give the classic comedy a fresh twist. Playing both Annie and Hallie James paved the way for other fun roles in reboots for Lohan—“Freaky Friday” and “Herbie: Fully Loaded”—followed by a slew of compelling performances in “A Prairie Home Companion,” “Bobby,” and, of course, “Mean Girls.” If the launch of Lohan’s career could be traced to any one moment, it might be the screen test below. Opposite “Parent Trap” co-star Dennis Quaid as her character’s father, the 10-year-old Lohan recites her lines with such convincing naturalness, it’s almost jarring when the two actors break character. Screen tests can be scary, especially for young actors on the cusp of booking a big role. But »
