The hotel was in San Francisco hense the Golden Gate Bridge
The song Hallie is humming on her way to the elevator at the hotel when she first encounters Meredith is the same song that the twins sang for their parents in the original 1961 Parent Trap. See more »
When Hallie as Annie rings the real Annie from the phone booth a bell dings as she puts the handset back, this doesn't happen in British phone booths. 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.
