Product Description

Amazon.ca

If you were a kid in the early 1960s, then you saw The Parent Trap with Hayley Mills--it's as simple as that. Now Disney has pulled the beloved comedy--about a pair of twins who meet for the first time at summer camp and vow to reunite their long-divorced parents--out of the mothballs and remade it with a decidedly '90s feel. This time, the twins act is performed by newcomer Lindsay Lohan, who plays both Hallie and Annie, who each live with one of their parents (Dennis Quaid and Natasha Richardson). Adversaries when they first meet at camp, Hallie and Annie become, well, sisters when they figure out that they are siblings. The comedy springs from their efforts to sabotage Dad's impending marriage to the gold-digging Elaine Hendrix, while reintroducing Dad to Mom. Quaid has a nice, loosey-goosey way with slapstick, as does Richardson, who plays a very funny drunk scene. --Marshall Fine

5.0 out of 5 stars DOUBLE YOUR PLEASURE...DOUBLE YOUR FUN... July 19 2006
By Lawyeraau TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I saw this re-make most reluctantly. After all, I thought, how could it compare to the original blockbuster hit of the same name, which starred the adorable British actress, Hayley Mills? Well, to my complete surprise, this film is a winner in its own right. Reprising the dual roles played by Hayley Mills, a young Lindsay Lohan, in her silver screen debut, is surprisingly effective and adorable, making the dual roles her own.

For those of you unfamiliar with the premise of the film, two girls, Hallie Parker and Annie James (Lindsay Lohan), meet at summer camp. They look exactly alike. One lives with her father, while the other lives with her mother. They soon figure out the previously unknown but inescapable fact that they are twins, separated shortly after birth, each of whom lives with one of their biological parents. They both long to know the parent that is missing from their respective lives. So, they concoct a plan that will allow them to do so, leading to a scheme to reunite their estranged parents. They simply switch places, when it comes time to return home. Their reunion scheme is almost derailed, however, when their biological father seems to have romantic designs on someone else.

This comedic caper focuses on the intrigues of the twins as they try to get the potential usurper out of their father's life and re-unite their parents. Lindsay Lohan is simply terrific in the dual roles of Hallie and Annie, infusing a great deal of charm and personality into her portrayal of the twins. Natasha Richardson is wonderful in the role of the mother, Elizabeth James. While she lacks the feistiness of Maureen O'Hara, who originally played the role, Ms. Richardson manages to make the role her own with her low-key charm.

When this film was originally released in theatres, I had no desire to see it because I didn't think it could possibly live up to the Hayley Mills version. Years later, I was flipping channels and saw it featured as the Disney movie of the week, and I fell in love with it! This version is even BETTER than the original! So much of the plot mimics the original story (twin girls separated at birth reunite and scheme to get their parents back together), and the small deviations are wonderful, like having one of the twins speak with a British accent (so cute!).
Lindsay Lohan is absolutely adorable in her dual role: I don't think I've ever seen a little girl as charming as she is! Dennis Quaid and Natasha Richardson are a wonderful couple, and Elaine Hendrix is perfect as the girls' evil stepmother-to-be. Fans of the original "Partent Trap" will enjoy seeing Joanna Barnes in her cameo role as Meredith's mother, Vicki: a great tribute to the character she played in the 1961 version of the film).
The music in this film is fantastic, and I highly suggest that you purchase the soundtrack in addition to the DVD. However, the one disappointment in this film is that the twin Lindsays don't do a modernized version of "Let's Get Together," which is the song that the twin Hayleys performed for their parents in the original film. in fact, there's no real musical number in this version at all (although they do briefly pay tribute to the classic song).
Overall, though, this movie is FABULOUS: I'm still kicking myself for not having gone to see it in the theatre, but I'm thrilled to own the DVD!

Annie is thrilled to be going to camp in America. She is horrified to discover a girl who looks just like her, however. Hallie is equally upset, and they start playing mean tricks on each other. When they are isolated as a result, they get to talking and discover that they are twins. They plot to switch places for two reasons. First, they want to meet their other parent. Second, and more importantly, they hope to reunite their parents. Complications greet Annie as Hallie in California when she discovers that their dad has gotten engaged over the summer. His fiancee is a truly horrid woman who will make everyone's lives miserable. But what can the girls do to change things?
This is pretty much a faithful remake of the original just updated for the 90's. Lindsay Lohan bravely steps into Hayley Mills' famous double roll, and pulls it off with style. This is her big screen debut, and she handles the rolls and the special effects with ease, seeming to switch characters convincingly at will. This is a young actress to watch. Dennis Quaid and Natasha Richardson are wonderful as the parents caught in the trap. They have incredible chemistry. Frankly, I never found the romance in the original that believable, but this movie has romance in spades. There are some truly great comic moments in the film and plenty of subtle hat tips to the original without slowing down the movie.
The DVD is simple, just the movie. This was one of the first films that Disney released in the then new format, so that helps explain the lack of extras. The film does look great in widescreen and sound great in surround, however.
As with any remake, there will be fans of one over the other. Personally, this one edges out the original, but not by much. There is plenty of charm and humor here to entertain without taking a thing away from the original. If you approach with an open mind, you just might find a place in your heart for this one right beside the other.
