Who has never watched The Parent Trap? It is one of my absolute Disney favorites. Actually they, because I love both versions the one from 1961 and the one from 1998. With the first one I never really understood what the big deal was since Boston and California were in the same country (enter my European concept of country, meaning much smaller and, therefore, the same exact culture and lifestyle) and I couldn’t really grasp the differences but it was fun nonetheless. For the second one I demanded to be taken to the cinema to watch it and then I watched it a zillion times more at home. Plus they decided to use London instead of Boston which was much more familiar. What I don’t really understand is why they didn’t choose the Olsen twins. They were perfect for the part. Not that I didn’t love Lindsay Lohan, I absolutely adored her but it just seems strange.
All of this is all just to say that I find this movie really fun, even now, and it reminds me of my childhood. And I guess I could also mention that, for some weird reason I love movies and shows about twins (Sweet Valley High, Sister, sister, Winning London…). You must think I’m crazy, but can you honestly say you didn’t love this movie as kids?
