Identical twins Annie and Hallie, separated at birth and each raised by one of their biological parents, later discover each other for the first time at summer camp and make a plan to bring their wayward parents back together.
When two pre-teens named Hallie and Annie meet through their summer camp, their two lives are rattled when they realize that they are identical twins. With parents, British mother aka famous dress designer Elizabeth and American father, a wine maker named Nick, living in two different sides of the universe, the girls decide to make an identity swap in hopes of spending time with their other parent. The girls later choose to inform their guardians of the swap while at a hotel in San Francisco, which later reunites the divorced pair and sends them back into remarriage with each other.Written by
The hotel was in San Francisco hence the Golden Gate Bridge
When Hallie wins at poker the first time the twins play, she produces a royal flush and and says "in your honor" to Annie, obviously referring to her British nationality. However, the music being played in the background is the first notes to La Marselleise, which is not only the French national anthem, but also revolutionary and anti-monarchic. See more »
In the bar at the hotel, when Elizabeth and Meredith have just met, the camera moves from behind Elizabeth to behind Meredith, and the drink in Elizabeth's hand jumps from her hand to the bar. See more »

Ladies, it's time to break up this little love fest. Annie. Hallie. I mean, Hallie. Annie. I-I-I mean, woah.

As the end credits begin rolling, the caption "For Hallie" is a dedication to Nancy Meyer's daughter. See more »
A version shown on the Disney channel also edits the piercing scene as well as the the following two scenes:
When Annie says "Oh my God! Oh my God" in reference to her father's house;
When Hallie, in London, tastes the wine and says that she prefers the softer California grape.
Wonderful remake of the 1961 Hayley Mills film. This film is much more realistic, with better acting. Lindsey Lohan is amazing as both Hallie and Annie--I really did think she was two people, she portrayed the two different charactars fantastically. All the different charactars in this movie are really funny as well, and there are no bad actors. The plot just zips by! I give this movie 10/10.
