5.0 out of 5 stars Twice the "Trap", twice the fun! July 2, 2005
Disney's THE PARENT TRAP remains one of the studio's most fondly-remembered hits. With Hayley Mills, Maureen O'Hara and Brian Keith leading the perfectly-realised cast, the movie has become a favourite of generations.

In THE PARENT TRAP, Sharon and Susan discover while at summer camp that the reason why they look so similar is that they were twins, separated shortly after their parents' split! The girls resolve to reunite their feuding parents by switching places and forcing them to meet once the switch is discovered. However, the twins don't count on "pluck-faced child-bride" Vicky (Joanna Barnes), who is quickly winning the heart of Mitch (Brian Keith)! A brief but quite eventful camping trip should solve the problem...!

In 1985, the Disney Channel made THE PARENT TRAP II, which brought Hayley Mills back to Disney for the first time since 1965, to reprise her roles of mischevious twins Sharon and Susan.

In the delightful first sequel, Sharon's pubescent daughter Nikki Ferris (Carrie Kei Heim) conspires to get her recently-divorced mother together with the father of her best friend Mary Grant (Bridgette Andersen). However, to acheive their goal, the girls must call in Sharon's twin Susan, who'll do most of the groundwork in getting the attention of Mary's father (Tom Skerritt). You'll adore this cute update in the continuing story of the twins' lives!

DISNEY TRIVIA: Nikki Ferris and Mary Grant are also the names of the characters played by Hayley Mills in THE MOON-SPINNERS and IN SEARCH OF THE CASTAWAYS...!

Disney has released PARENT TRAP II in a double-disc set with the previously-available Vault Disney edition of the original movie. Great vaulue!

Later followed by PARENT TRAP III, and PARENT TRAP: HAWAIIAN HONEYMOON (both are as yet unavailable on DVD).

5.0 out of 5 stars Double Trouble Double Pleasure December 28, 2005
I am a Disney phile. I love classic Disney fare.

The Parent Trap was a great follow up after Pollyanna for child star Hayley Mills. This 1961 classic used split screen better than ever. The supporting cast of Brian Keith (five years before he become Uncle Bill on Family Affair- when does that reach DVD?), Maureen O'Hara And Leo G. Carroll (Four years before he became a part of U.N.C.L.E-as in the man from!) works so well with the twin Mills's Sharon and Susan.

Most of the extra features from the Vault Disney version is here... except for the audio comments from Ms Mills and Direction David Swift. Unless you need the comments, the DVD is fine without it.

Twenty years later, Disney did a sequel, Parent Trap II. This wonderful comedy of errors happened so DISNEY-ish and works so well on many levels. Nikki and her friend Mary try to bring Mary's father together with Sharon. Enter Nikki's married aunt Susan to help Nikki and mary with their problem and the fun begins. The split screen effect is good, but not as good in the orginal trap. It STILL is pure Disney magic captured in a DVD

There are no extras regarding Parent Trap II... I know somewhere in the vault there is a 'making of PT2' feature, which is NOT on here. For Shame!

For children of all ages and fans of family entertainment, this DVD collection is great fun and rates high in my book

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY! July 18, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My beloved Parent Trap 2 on dvd after many long yrs of waiting.
I cant wait until they put PT3 and Hawaiin Honeymoon on DVD too!

Sharon and Susan are all grown up and have families of thier own.
Sharon has just gone through a divorce and wants to move to New York City w/ her daughter.
While at Summer school her daughter meets a friend and their antics are funny. Her friend's mom died a while back and they are trying to get their parents together so Sharon wont have to move.

Not as good as the original PT but still fun to watch.
PLEASE PLEASE make PT3 and Hawaiian Honeymoon available soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Disney + Hayley Mills = magic May 7, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The original Parent Trap is one of the finest family movies ever made. Hayley Mills plays 2 early teen girls, and these are great realistic performances of girls of the early 60's, not cutesy movie kids. There is also some adult humor that went right over my head when I saw this movie as a 6 year old - the look on Brian Keith's face when he sees Maureen O'Hara's bra and assumes it's the property of his 13 year old daughter is great.

As for the sequel, it was good but it had a little too much "cutesy kid" and not enough Hayley Mills for my taste.

The features are very good. The people interviewed all seemed to have liked each other and the project they made. The writer/director David Swift was a soft spoken, humble man who made a little masterpiece.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun, as I had hoped August 22, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've loved the original Parent Trap movie for years, and I finally invested in this DVD of Parent Trap 1 and 2 because I thought it would be fun to watch them with my little girl. We've had a great time watching these together! Hayley Mills is fun to see as an adult in Parent Trap 2. Both were clean and funny; I don't remember anything I'd mind my 4-year-old seeing in either of them.

Parent trap one is a good movie but the second movie brings this package down. It is good to add to your collection if you are a Disney fan and the kids will enjoy it.

I love this version of the Parent Trap. I had not seen the Parent Trap II until I purchased this. It isn't as great of a movie as the first, but is good too.

Second part
The two films being referred to are "Parent Trap III", and "Parent Trap: Hawaiian Honeymoon". Sadly these films have been out of circulation for a long time, but sometimes turn up on cable. It's doubtful if Disney will ever release them on DVD in the near future.
