The hotel was in San Francisco hense the Golden Gate Bridge
The name of the hotel, The Stafford, is a reference to the name of a boy in the original The Parent Trap (1961). He is the boy Hayley Mills' character, Susan, is talking to at the camp dance, when the back of her dress was cut off by twin-sister, Sharon. See more »
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 »

Where are we?
This is where we're eating?
[Pointing to a 100+ foot yacht]
No. Actually, *that's* where we're eating.
She's ours for the night.
Wow. So, how exactly are we paying for this?
Well, we pooled our allowances.
Yeah. Right. Annie?
Okay. Grandfather chipped in a bit.

This movie was pretty good. It was better than I expected. I especially loved the performance of Natasha Richardson, who is really gorgeous. Dennis Quaid was cute too. Lindsay Lohan was incredible too. My 8 year old sisters loved the original and got the new one and fell in love with it too. They are already reciting it. Rent both versions and enjoy both! They are great!
