But THE PARENT TRAP has a lot more going for it than mere nostalgia. The cast is really, really good, featuring the ever-likable Maureen O'Hara and Brian Keith in leading roles and a host of great character actors (including Leo G. Carroll and Nancy Kulp) in minor roles. And then there is Haley Mills. The daughter and sister of noted English actors, Mills was no newcomer to the screen when THE PARENT TRAP went before the cameras--she had even picked up an Oscar for her earlier Disney film POLLYANNA. Even so, this was no guarantee that she could pull off the feat of double roles, something that had daunted even the legendary Bette Davis. But she did.
The story has been told so often that surely every one knows it by now. A wife delivers twin daughters--but shortly afterward divorces her husband, and each wins custody of one child. The children are raised without any knowledge of each other's existence... until they unexpectedly bump into each other at summer camp, put two and two together, and devise a scheme to get their parents back together again.Read more ›
I was very impressed with the Parent Trap 2 cd set. The commentary between the director David Swift and star Hayley Mills was VERY interesting. Hayley talks about how difficult it was playing two parts as well as many other pieces of trivia and interesting facts about the movie. The sound is really good since it is THX certified, and the picture is crisp and clear. The behind the scenes documentary is a great plus along with the animated short that is included as well. There is alot more extras than are even listed on the back. There is a jukebox that plays songs from the movie, a documentary on the woman who played Hayley's twin, and much more!
You will want this movie for your collection, because it still has the charm of a Disney classic with a twist of modern technology with TONS of extras included. I was very satisfied with my purchase and I highly recommend that if you like this movie or have it on vhs, get the DVD while you can!
The 2 disc set has much more than is listed here or on the packaging. It is loaded with surprise features, but you have to hunt for them.

No, it didn't even come close. The DVD kept saying it was CORRUPT!! That was a lot of money spent for my grandchildren's (and their Grandmother's) disappointment. 😕Published 24 minutes ago by McScottie

Fantastic movie. I always loved as a child and shared this viewing with my nine year old who loves it now.Published 2 days ago by Mikkell Parish
Great family flick! Lots of silly humor. Plenty of over-acting, in classic 60's style. Loved it! Brought back lots of childhood memories.Published 4 days ago by kmamab
