Two identical twin sisters (both played by Hayley Mills), separated at birth by their parents' divorce, are reunited years later at a summer camp, where they scheme to bring their parents back together.

The Parent Trap

“Personally, my favorite thing about The Parent Trap is how the all-American twins played by Hayley Mills manage to speak in her posh, rounded British tones throughout. Not a dig against Millsโ€™ acting or the strength of her dual performance in making a patently absurd premise work, more of a mere observation of an interesting directorial choice. Iโ€™m not sure if The Parent Trap really deserves to remain as beloved a property as it has remained since 1961, either through the original or the Lindsay Lohan remake, but itโ€™s certainly an enjoyable bit of fluff. ย  If you can vibe with the toxic and strange premise, divorced parents hated each other so much that they separated their twins and moved to opposite coasts only for the twins to meet-up at summer camp and switch places to reunite” read more
