I apologize for dropping the ball on my Sunday at the Movies series. We’ve had some busy weekends and I’m just getting a chance to catch back up.
When I first heard of Natasha Richardson’s passing this week, I honestly couldn’t remember what movie I had seen her in. But then it hit me. She was the ADORABLE ‘mum’ in MY FAVORITE Disney remake movie!
So I thought it fitting to share with you this fun and cute movie in her memory.
Disney has done a lot of remake movies, some of which have been extreme flops, but this is one of those movies where I can say I TRULY LOVE the remake more then I liked the original.
Lindsay Lohan (before all her adult troubles) is the cutest thing in this movie. She does an exellent job playing both girls – even carrying a pretty good english accent for one of them. Dennis Quaid plays the laid back, fun loving dad and he actually does a really cute Cary Grant inpersonation in the movie ( it’s real quick and it’s after the camping trip) so keep any eye out for that.
I really can’t think of anything really negative about this movie. The young fiance in the movie does wear some tight dresses, but all in all the movie contains no bad language, no major sexual content, and in the end brings a once broken family back together.
Here’s a little more info on the movie for you:
Hallie Parker and Annie James are identical twins separated at a young age because of their parents’ divorce. unknowingly to their parents, the girls are sent to the same summer camp where they meet, discover the truth about themselves, and then plot with each other to switch places. Hallie meets her mother, and Annie meets her father for the first time in years. they then make a plan to set up their parents, which suddenly goes awry with an announcement from their father. the story goes through many different twists and turns, and is an amazing story from start to finish.
