Movie Info

Two identical twins (Hayley Mills) try to reunite their parents after a fourteen year estrangement. The two girls know nothing of each other until they meet one day quite by accident. They switch identities to meet the mother (or father) they never knew after being separated by the parent many years ago.

Audience Reviews for The Parent Trap

This is way duller than the Lindsay Lohan version, especially the romance between the parents.

This is the original Disney film of The Parent Trap, and it's better than the remake, I think. It's fun and has good songs, and good actors too. I recommend it over the new one.

I loved this movie as a kid. Hayley Mills in probably one of the better trick photography films of the 60s. I loved this one more than the Lindsay Lohan remake.
