the best family film of the year! adorable!
I have to say, I couldn't stand the original Parent Trap, but maybe that's because I saw this version first. Either way, the new Parent Trap is a great film and the perfect film to see with the family. When I saw it, I knew it would wind up in my family's library, and that it did, as soon it was available. Charming, funny, even romantic. I actually had a few tears at the end! The cast is great, Lindsey Lohan is funny and adorable, just likable, and unlike the original parents, Dennis Quaid and Natasha Richardson are excellent and seem like great parents. See it with any kids that you care about, everyone in every age category will like this film.

Trivia

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.


Quotes

Nick Parker: 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.


Goofs

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.


Crazy Credits

During the opening credits, it says "A Nancy Meyers/Charles Shyer Film," even though only the former is the director.


Alternate Versions

A version shown on the Disney channel also edits the piercing scene as well as the the following two scenes:

  • When Annie says "Oh my God! Oh my God" in reference to her father's house;
  • When Hallie, in London, tastes the wine and says that she prefers the softer California grape.
