Really good watch, might watch again, and can recommend.
Having recently watched the original, this movie does a rather nice job of following it beat for beat. Now, it’s not the same movie, but it follows the same format, with modernization and punch-ups throughout the movie.
As someone who complains about deviation from the source material, I approve the changes here. Sadly, they kept the twins carrying the movie, which means Lindsay Lohan was doing double work, but you could hardly tell. The green screen and clone work in this is actually really well done for late 1990’s.
The most important aspect is that the movie retained its charm in re-uniting a lost / separated family.
Entertaining and sweet. Just as good as the 1961 original, which probably edges this ever so slightly but they are both terrific films.
1998’s ‘The Parent Trap’ features Lindsay Lohan in the dual role, she is excellent as Hallie and Annie – Hayley Mills from ’61 would be my pick as the sisters, but again it’s a tremendous piece of casting.
It’s also a tight call between the parents, with Dennis Quaid (Nick) and Natasha Richardson (Liz) in those roles here – they have believable chemistry, which is key. Elsewhere in this ’98 remake, Elaine Hendrix (Meredith) and Lisa Ann Walter (Chessy) are good.
The camera work et al. is impressive. Though, just like the first film, the run time could probably have been shorter. Not that that’s a big negative, as this film is very much enjoyable to watch. Recommended.
Cute remake of a great original
This movie was pretty good. It was better than I expected. I especially loved the performance of Natasha Richardson, who is really gorgeous. Dennis Quaid was cute too. Lindsay Lohan was incredible too. My 8 year old sisters loved the original and got the new one and fell in love with it too. They are already reciting it. Rent both versions and enjoy both! They are great!
