Twins-You should always tell the difference!
31 January 2016 | by annastretchdSee all my reviews

Well as I twin myself I feel emotionally attached to this movie. For the parent figure not to figure out that it was Loral just because of the haircut and necklace was shocking to me.(Even with the amnesia!) My Mom would of known in an instance because of how different we are. I'm more 'Smh, whatever' and she's more like 'DO this do that-ahhh' so yeah. Another problem I had was how she wanted to steal her sister's life. It was cruel but I guess we all do things like that. I really liked how she found her self and figured herself out. Also later on grieving. I feel like the beginning would of been more of an Audrey than Loral thin to do and that the guy love interest was a perfect fit for Loral. The Charles character was a little unbelievable but otherwise this movie was 'ight. Okay. SMH.... I just can't get into these type of movies but overall it was okay and a way to move on with the night... I also think the accident should of happened later on so that we could of seen how Loral had to change to become her.... that's it I guess.
