Image result for the parent trap 1998

Annie from London and Hallie from California (both played by Lindsey Lohan) meet at a summer camp in Maine, and realize that they are identical twins. One is raised by their dad and the other by their mom. Having never met half of their parentage, the two decide to switch places with the ultimate idea of getting their parents back together. Unfortunately, a beautiful gold digger has her hooks in their dad. Lohan pulls the trick off nicely, creating distinct personalities for both characters, and Quaid and Richardson do a nice job as the parents, making us care about them ending up together right along with their screen daughters. Writer/Director Meyers has a deft touch with light comedies. Fantastic family romantic comedy.
