About the Movie

What if you spent your whole life wishing for something you didn't know you already had? Hallie Parker and Annie James are about to find out. From Walt Disney Pictures and the creators of Father of the Bride comes the hilariously fresh and contemporary retelling of the classic hit The Parent Trap. Hallie is a cool girl from California. Annie is a fair rose from London. When the two accidentally meet at summer camp, they think they have nothing in common except ... they're identical twins (both played by Lindsay Lohan)! Now they're up to their freckles in schemes and dreams to switch places, get their parents (Dennis Quaid and Natasha Richardson) back together, and have the family they've always wished for! This charming, heartwarming, and delightfully clever comedy adventure will enchant your entire family.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The lavish, super-cute new version of The Parent Trap is a remake of the 1961 Hayley Mills hit, which was seriously adorable in its own right – Janet Maslin, New York Times, May 27, 2011

Fresh: Responsibility for making this Trap tender rests heaviest on the bird-size shoulders of auburn-haired, freckle-faced Lohan, now 11, who won the unenviable job of making us forget about Hayley Mills -- at least temporarily. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, May 27, 2011

Fresh: New pic is slick, sentimental and exceptionally well cast, with enough cross-generational appeal to suggest strong commercial potential. – Joe Leydon, Variety, May 27, 2011

Fresh: Richardson and Quaid, who is beginning to resemble Harrison Ford in his rumpled mode, have great chemistry. It's a shame it takes so long for the movie to bring them together to demonstrate it. – Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle, May 27, 2011

Great Family Movie!

This is a GREAT movie! This movie is almost a five star, but it can't top Lord of the Rings. I think this newer version of the movie is much better then the old one, the old one meaning the Haley Mills version, and all should enjoy it.

One of our all time favorites!!

We never get tired of seeing this amazing movie. It is one of the best movies ever made. Every actor has put a great show but the highlight is the dual role by Lindsay Lohan. She is just too amazing here.

Best Movie Ever

This is my favorite movie of all time, full of adventure, romance, and tons of laughs!!!This movie is also perfect for all ages to watch! 2 thumbs up!!!
