The technology for twinning a single young actress is considerably more seamless than it was in 1961, and Lohan is a perky charmer.

This 1998 romantic comedy mostly bores with its cumbersome exposition and close-ups of trivial objects scattered throughout lackluster montage sequences.

The whole thing is pleasant enough -- provided you can suspend your disbelief for long enough to accept that all English people talk in plummy accents, swan around Kensington and have butlers.

Delightful remake is great for the whole family.

New pic is slick, sentimental and exceptionally well cast, with enough cross-generational appeal to suggest strong commercial potential.

The light comedy is sweetly timed, the direction smart and assured, and the visuals bright, colourful, unobtrusive and faultless.

Lohan is cute and charming, as would be expected, but she also brings a street-savvy quality to both her roles, and distinguishes them well enough for us to tell the difference, even if no one in the movie can.

You probably won't be missing out if you don't see this film but if you do, you'll spend a pleasant time.

Affirms the ideal of family ties as one of the pre-eminent virtues of our times.
