The Parent Trap

The Parent Trap caters to a limited audience: girls under ten. Anyone else is probably going to find this film excruciating.

Annie James (Lindsay Lohan) and Hallie Parker (Lindsay Lohan) are twins who have never met - when their parents divorced, each took one twin, and they now live on separate continents. Both girls are sent to the same summer camp in Maine, where they meet for the first time. In a gag-me-with-a-spoon cutesy scene, Hallie exclaims, "We're like sisters!" Annie echoes, "Sisters? Hallie, we're like....twins!" Hello, can you spell O-B-V-I-O-U-S? I just about died.

If you ever saw the 1961 original Parent Trap featuring Hayley Mills - or even if you didn't- you know where this one is going. The twins scheme to get their parents back together and you know what happens then. So, check out this film if you have a youngish daughter; the script is no surprise, yet the acting on Lindsay Lohan's part is excellent.
