Identical twins Annie and Hallie, separated at birth and each raised by one of their biological parents, later discover each other for the first time at summer camp and make a plan to bring their wayward parents back together.
In the original draft of the script, many scenes are altered or deleted. An extended ear-piercing scene is in. While putting the needle through Annie's ear, Hallie screams and passes out. Annie gently smacks Hallie in the face, trying to wake her up. After Hallie wakes up, she asks Annie, "Are you bleeding to death? Did it hurt?" Annie tells her no to both questions and shows Hallie the needle again, and tells her to finish with the other because she (Annie) will not go through life with just one pierced ear. Hallie passes out again.
You know, sometime if we're ever really alone maybe we could talk about what happened between us. You know it's all a bit hazy to me now. It ended so fast.
Elizabeth James: You mean it started so fast.
Nick Parker: Well, that part I remember perfectly.
When Nick is breaking the news to Annie about the upcoming marriage, the hat on the couch next to her moves several times between shots.
During the opening credits, it says "A Nancy Meyers/Charles Shyer Film," even though only the former is the director.
A version shown on the Disney channel also edits the piercing scene as well as the the following two scenes:
