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! With 'Two Thumbs Up' from Siskel and Ebert, 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
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.
Fresh: New pic is slick, sentimental and exceptionally well cast, with enough cross-generational appeal to suggest strong commercial potential.
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.
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.
Lindsay Lohan is adorable in this movie
This is a case of the remake being better than the original. Lohan is absolutely precious and a great child actor, especially playing two different roles in the same film. She works like a seasoned trooper and should have gottten an award for her performance. The editing and writing are updated and very well done, and the dad's new fiance is wonderfully hatable.
This movie Is the Greatest Movie Disney Has Ever Made!!!!!
