      Pretty much the only reason this movie holds up better than others is because it was a remake that honored the original. The original Parent Trap from 1961 held up well also. The Prince and the Pauper trope holds some real appeal on it's own so a more family oriented version just makes sense. This movie is mostly identical to the former version sparing some more modern settings and different shots. How the couple got together, married and divorced in like a week... and somehow had kids in that same week wasn't there and it was a change that I think just wasn't thought through.

      Yeah this reminds me of Helena bonham Carter as well where in the Harry Potter moves Hermione Polyjuices as Bellatrix to get into gringotts. So you have Helena Bonham Carter pretending to be Emma Watson pretending to be Hermione Granger pretending to be Bellatrix Lestrange accessing her Gringitts Vault to get Hufflepuffs Horcrux. Wild.

      Mandela effect thing here: for many years I remembered the two girls being played by the Olsen twins

    • Amanda Bell

      That’s because of “It Takes Two,” in which the Olsen twins play doppelgängers manipulating their parents/guardians to fall in love.

    What bothers me is how did the parents not feel sick to their stomachs only having one of their children, knowing they gave away the other.

    • Ali M.
      Ali M. Před 6 měsíci +133

      ​@Gauss maybe it doesn't HAVE to have deep thought, but it would be nice. Kids aren't dumb, they think about these things when watching movies too

    • Gauss
      Gauss Před 6 měsíci +24

      @Ali M. Most kids dont actually, you develop those skills through literature classes so most kids only start to think and analize these things around the puberty/end of their primary school, and even that is a stretch.
      And I doubt targeted audience for this movie is 14-15, not saying those people cant enjoy it, its quite enjoyable at any age, but you always have to look at targeted audience when discussing this.
      Also, not every movie in general not just kids move, has to be deep and flawless to be good, I get annoyed when I see people being pedantic with details about widely enjoyed movies, sometimes you dont put on a movie to mentally challenge you but quite the opposite, to have fun and relax.

    • Nicola Berry
      Nicola Berry Před 6 měsíci +28

      I do enjoy the movie - you're taking this wildly serious. It is like 50 First Dates, I liked that movie too but when I first watched it when I was like 11/12 I said to my mum "she must be so scared to wake up pregnant, that's awful." Kids do pick up on things. As a viewer you are very much likely to imagine yourself in that scenario or situation, it is preferable really so you get more invested in a story. I think it isn't weird to question that scenario at all.
      You can enjoy a movie, while also thinking "damn that's a bit messed up". Even as a kid I thought it was weird for parents to divide their children and that's what I spoke about most of the movie. Maybe that is cause I am an older sister, living with a big family.
      I'm not asking it to be flawless or good? I don't know why you are fighting like I've condemned the movie, I just find the premise a little odd, and I'm just talking about it. It's always been something on my mind since I first watched it. I still find it funny, I still enjoy it, I grew up with it, I showed it to my little brother a few months ago, in no way do I dislike the movie. Questioning something, and overly picking something apart are two very different things. I questioned the movie, so what? Why do you care? It's not like I broke apart the movie and said it needed to be a serious commentary about children of divorce - because, believe it or not, I like the movie. Shocker.
      It is a little funny that you are saying stuff like this "it doesnt have to be 5head 5D chess levels of depth, IQ testing and thoughtfulness?" about a, what? 10 worded comment? That also didn't require a deep level of thoughtfulness.

      Jacqueline Callejas Před 6 měsíci +34

      Yeah you do kind of have to gloss over that to route for them to get back together and have a happy ending. At least it isn't as bad as the traditional Hanzel and Gretel story. Remember there the parents tried to kill the kids TWICE by abandoning them in the woods and when the kids defeat the witch they find the witch's treasure and bring it back to their parents, then the 4 of them live happily ever after because they are rich. NEVER set well with me.

      Unless you saw them together, you probably assumed they were the same girl lol. I’ve worked in summer camps, it’s hard to keep track of every face, you are more looking for people who stand out, as in, don’t belong. I don’t care what anyone says, it’s not easy to keep dozens of kids in your mind at once while they’re all screaming and running in different directions. It was a lot of fun though..

  • Hannah B

      @Sunspot Mill That scene frightened my young daughter on first viewing and it didn't really add anything. I would also have cut out the lizard going into Meredith's mouth for just being stupid. Otherwise I thought it was a good family movie. Both my kids loved it.

  • Divine Philosophy
    Divine Philosophy Před 6 měsíci +311

    Fun fact: they do actually look a bit different because Lindsey Lohan shot each twin a year apart. If you pay attention the British twin looks smaller and younger. You can really see how much Lindsey Lohan’s face developed in one year :)

    • The Dawn of Vanlife
      The Dawn of Vanlife Před 7 měsíci +256

      When I saw the original parent trap movie (this is the remake). I always thought it was messed up. It’s sorta the kids fairy tale of uniting divorced parents. Which is mostly unrealistic at it’s core. Someone just wanted to write a whole ‘identical strangers’ plot with kids an this was the result. Twins aren’t interchangeable. I doubt a mom or dad would just go on for 11 years like a whole nother child did not exist.

    • Leonida Tuck
      Leonida Tuck Před 7 měsíci +162

      Not to mention child abandonment. These kids would have so much resentment.

    • spntageous
      spntageous Před 7 měsíci +326

      @The Dawn of Vanlife i felt like this was kind of the point. The kids in The Parent Trap think their parents are so cool and love them so much, but in reality the housekeeper and the butler(and the grandfather) are the ones who discovered that the girls had switched before the parents did. Which speaks about how the girls aren't actually close with their parents as much as they are close with the housekeeper and the butler.

  • Natalia Mejia
    Natalia Mejia Před 7 měsíci +1669

    Fun fact: Meredith’s mom in the parent trap 13:22 is actually the original “other woman/ fiancé” in the 1961 Disney movie. Having watched that movie as a kid I was like it didn’t work the first time marrying the rich guy with twins so now she is trying with her daughter 😂.

      I like to think that Vicky, not getting to marry her rich guy, she moves on and married. She has Meredith and told her to marry someone rich. Therefore, Vicky is trying to live through her daughter.

    • Joel Brewton
      Joel Brewton Před 7 měsíci +25

      @Misty Benjamin That's TOTALLY my head-canon too, and the reason we never see Vicki again after that one scene is because she died off-screen from a heart-attack once she realized that she and her family were doomed to repeat the same story over and over!

    The butler was never trying to be creepy or weird towards her, hes been in the family for years and that's the only father figure shed ever known. Ofcourse he would harbor the same feelings to someone you took care of pretty much your whole life. Dont look into it like that. I thought their relationship was adorable.

    • Stephanie Wozny
      Stephanie Wozny Před 4 měsíci +37

      I agree. It's implied with both Chessie and the butler (his name escapes me at the moment) that they have been with the family for YEARS at this point, most likely helping raise each girl (since both parents look like they have fairly demanding careers). Its kind of nice. Like, even if the parents weren't together, you still got this image of them having a solid family unit while growing up.

    • Paul Xombie
      Paul Xombie Před 4 měsíci +15

      True, but Meredith has a scene early on (before the reveal about there being a secret twin) showing she was planning on getting rid of his daughter anyway. So deception or no deception, she still was terrible.

    I have a smidge of sympathy for Meredith. Girl was a hustler, she definitely worked and had her own, and she genuinely seemed to at the very least, LIKE Nick. She did initially try to be nice and talk to Hallie. Nick had been keeping this secret from her the whole time, THEN she finds out the girls are trying to set Nick back up with the ex-wife, THEN gets dragged out to the middle of a lake in her sleep and wakes up freaking out. What if she didn't know how to swim? What if she got attacked by a wild animal or something? This could've possibly been a murder attempt by the twins. And Nick didn't do much to stick up for her.....
    I would've lost my shit too.
    Girl dodged a bullet, lol.

      The dad actually does suspect at one point. I think they both do but I can't recall exactly... It's just so much something they've both clearly blocked off from being in the realm of possible (because of their own crazy unhealthy decision to just cut themselves off from their other child) that it actually makes sense to me. They're both too much in denial and pain to stop suppressing what is obvious to everyone else with a healthy brain

  • Kimberly Merrick
    Kimberly Merrick Před 7 měsíci +112

    My only defense of the plot is that they are at summer camp in Maine. And it’s definitely a thing that every summer celebrities and ultra rich send their children here all summer to camps. So with both their parents being well off this actually makes sense 😂

    You should watch the original Parent Trap (1961) with Haley Mills. It was just as cute, and made a little bit more sense. The mom lived in Boston while the dad was in CA. There is really good banter between the parents and you can see the romantic chemistry they had.

    The Leo joke made me howl. Lol
    Even as a child, I was so surprised the girls were excited to meet their other parent. If I was a kid and I found out that not only did my mom/dad not care enough about me to have a relationship with me despite not getting along with the ex, but also that I had not just a sister - a twin - and they were just gonna let me live my life without one of the closest bonds a human can feel would make me immeasurably angry and I can’t imagine being excited for that meeting. I’d want answers, not hugs.

    Oh wow, this is nostalgic! I'm an identical twin, so I think this movie really spoke to me and my twin sister back when it first came out. ADORED it as a child! Thanks for reviewing this! Lindsay Lohan genuinely did an excellent job creating two unique individuals AND making it seem like she was really there in the scene with herself. Amazing at such a young age...

    Being from the Netherlands and watching the Dutch dubbed version of this movie and also being very young, I never understood that they lived on different continents. I just thought they lived a few hour drive away from each other. When I got older and found out, it made their whole plan seem much more serious and dangerous.

    I actually liked "It Takes Two" more when I was a kid. Kind of a similar "twins switch at summer camp, try to get their guardians together while getting rid of dad's evil fiancée" except the girls aren’t related (they just look alike), and one of them is a poor orphan and the other is a lonely rich kid. It also stars the Olsen twins.

    Growing up, this made me think it was normal for divorced parents with twins to split them up like inanimate possessions

    • bebop
      bebop Před 7 měsíci +138

      It actually was normal before the 1970s. This movie is a remake of a much older movie from 1961, the twins are older in that movie and would have been born in 1945, so yeah, this would not have been an outlandish custody arrangement at the time their parents would’ve gotten divorced. Before the 1970s, if parents of young children got divorced, joint custody arrangements were pretty rare, usually what would happen is a judge would assign a specific kid to a specific parent to live with for the rest of their life. So a lot of the time, if your parents got divorced, you would live with one parent and you may never see your other parent and the sibling that live with that other parent ever again.

      ​@bebop it's also based on a german novel by Erich Kästner from 1949, with the idea being older than that. He intended to write a movie but had to drop it due to him being openly against the Nazi Regime.
      After the war he made it into a novel (which is still quite popular in Germany) so the first draft of this dates into the early fourtys!

    The biggest question I had from the Summer Camp portion of the story is where exactly did the sole Boy at the camp sleep? Did he get a cabin all to himself? The boy's parents mistakenly sent him to an All-Girls Summer Camp and he's there for the full 8 weeks. 🤣🤣🤣🤣

    As an adult who has a strained relationship with my dad, I gotta say these girls took the whole "one of my parents totally abandoned me" thing really, really well. It's like, if it was me instead of trying to figure out why my parents split up, I'd be more concerned with why one of my parents (who knew I existed) never once tried to contact me, and only left me with their picture which was a torn picture. When Haley and Annie first met their mom and dad, that was literally the first time they had even heard their voices. Like how are you okay with having zero contact with one of your children, and even lying to them about being twins so they can never meet their sister, and so you can pretend like there's no reason to see each other. Soooo messed up.

    For a more modern family movie, I would say Inside Out.

    Imagine having twins and then lying to them about their separation, that dark. Funny side note, a guy with dark hair and a blonde woman can have a redhead. I would know because my dad has dark hair, my mom has blonde, and I'm redhead. Red hair is a recessive gean so both parents carry the trait but don't necessarily have red hair. I'm also a year older than Lindsey Lohan 😅

    7:18 Yeah I do agree with that. In real life, I doubt the girls would have been that enthusiastic about meeting their other parent considering that not only did they hide the fact that they have a twin, but they also seemingly forgot about their other child completely. I know for a fact that if I were in this situation, I probably wouldn't be so excited to meet my other parent.

    I guess when you get down to it , there really isn’t a way to tell this story without glossing over the horror of it.

    This movie came out slightly before the harrowing divorce of my parents. I can't tell you how many kids my age at the time, as well as adults, would jokingly tell me that me and my identical twin brother should attempt to bring my parents back together "Just like in The Parent Trap!" I knew they were joking and I just smiled back, but deep down those comments stabbed my soul knowing the gravity of the divorce. I've hated this movie ever since and I've actually never watched it (though I learned the plot over time). Thank you for listening to my therapy session!😅

      Divorce and broken homes suck. Idiot parents say dumb things like "oh kids are resilient, they will be happier", they are full of it. As a divorced single dad of 4 I've done the best I can to minimize the suck for my kids but there's no way to eliminate it. I didn't want the divorce but if I thought the kids would prefer if I moved out I would have. Instead I refused to move out and I fought for as much custody as I could get. My boys are with me full time (they are older), my girls about half. But I always tell them even though I want them all the time they can spend as much time as they want with their mom any time they want. I'm lucky I never had to live that two home co-parenting thing like you did.

    Actually the part where Meredith says “it’s me or the kids” before even getting married honestly isn’t too far fetched. I remember watching this movie when I was little and my mom told me the same thing happened to my great grandfather and grandpa back in the day. My great grandfather was engaged to a women after my great grandma died and went on a camping trip with her and his 2 teenage sons (my grandpa and his brother). My grandpa and his brother were terrible to her and she kept complaining about going camping (more of a city girl I guess) since she wanted to go skiing in like aspen or something, but my great grandfather said that they always go camping in the summer and it’s a tradition and they’re not going to cut the trip short just because of her. Well I guess that was the final straw because she said it’s them (my grandpa and his brother) or her. My great grandfather apparently looked at her like she was stupid and said “Of course I’m going to choose my kids.” She got pissed at that and stormed off saying that if he doesn’t follow her that she won’t be back when they return.
    Well they had a fun camping trip and my great grandfather never heard from her again. All that was left apparently was the ring on the table when they got back along with a note with some choice language apparently.

    Regarding the whole 'how did a two brunettes have red-heads', red hair is a recessive trait that can skip generations, so it’s not that far-fetched. My family has a red-head gene, but it rarely manifests. My grandpa had brown hair and a bright red moustache, and I have medium-brown hair that turns copper when I'm outside in the sun a lot. Other than that, no one else has gotten red hair for several generations.

      Yup! And in some cases with red hair, you're redheaded for a while, and then change to a darker hair color! I'm actually an identical twin, and while my parents both have dark hair, my twin and I started off blonde, then progressed to red-heads, and finally became brunettes (like a chestnut brown). It's actually very interesting!

    Besides the issues you mentioned in your video, the thing that bothers me is that no one at camp realized they had 2 identical campers there? They all eat in the same dining hall, they all participate in the same activities, and yet no one noticed? Even if you go with the excuse that they had only been there for a few days when they first met and the other campers hadn't had time to figure out that these were 2 different redheads, I find it hard to believe the adults didn't notice. Especially the two in charge!

    The woman playing Meredith's mom, was in the original 1961 Parent Trap. She played basically the same character as Meredith, except her name was Vicki, which they made a reference too in this movie.

    honest to goodness, I got chills when I saw the whole band there for the 'choose me over your children!' red flag

    As an adult i honestly tear up every time the girls meet their parent for the first time. It ends up being so sweet

    These two girls did not only switch places but they moved thousands of kilometres away from one another to different continents.
    I grew up reading the book the movie is based on and there the two protagonists did live in different places but still in the same country so to switch back they just had to take the train, but in this movie they would have to take a multiple hour plane ride (at least 9 hours) over 8 time zones.

    Thank you for this. I have been having a rough couple of weeks and it is nice to start my day off laughing with a smile. I think this is going to be a part of my morning ritual.

    17:21 the initial reason for family style movies was so that the whole family could watch tv because most houses only had one tv. Now that houses have multiple tvs and devices to watch movies on companies can make movies catered to everyone individually instead of all together.

    Meredith being 26 is kind of insane. 😂

      back when I watched it and I was like 10, 26 seemed such a reasonable age to marry an older richer guy... I am now 23 and Am Absolutely Horrified that 26 year old Meredith Blake tried to marry a man in his 40s

      I was looking for this comment! When I was a kid I thought she was so old and mature, but she's only 26?? She does dress and act very classy which probably makes her seem older

    I would love to see you do a review of the original version of the parent trap with Patty Duke.

      Patty Duke had a TV show where she played identical cousins. Hayley Mills started in Parent Trap (1961.)

    I never understood why this arrangement was wrong. I remember my mom saying something about how messed up this was, and i didnt understand why until years later

    The whole time watching this I was extremely reminded of the (here famous) german novel "Das doppelte Lottchen" by Erich Kästner (1949) - and it is an adaption! I really love that book ❤️

    The most unrealistic part is that someone from England would go to an American summer camp for 8 weeks since our summer holidays only last for 6 weeks.

      The second most is that Annie and Hallie don’t immediately realize they are twins. I guess mirrors don’t exist in this universe.

      Also what’s unrealistic for me, why was one twin American and the other English?
