Editorial Reviews

THE PARENT TRAP: Hayley Mills, Special Academy Award(R) winner for 1960's POLLLYANNA, lights up the screen in Disney's fondly remembered release of THE PARENT TRAP. Mills stars as Susan and Sharon, identical twins separated at birth. Neither twin knows the other exists until a simple twist of fate finds them at the same summer camp. Then, realizing who they are, they plan a little twist of their own. They switch places with high hopes of getting their parents back together. This delightful and heartwarming comedy will have your whole family doubling up with laughter. THE PARENT TRAP II: First time on DVD! In the full-length sequel THE PARENT TRAP II, Hayley Mills returns to reprise her roles as identical twins Sharon and Susan. Now all grown up, Sharon is a single mom whose 11-year-old daughter Nikki is just as mischievous as she was! During summer school Nikki and her new friend Mary turn into scheming matchmakers when they try to get Sharon and Mary's widowed father together. Not quite able to make it happen, they turn to the one person who can really help -- Sharon's twin Susan!|The movie is based on the popular German children's story "Das Doppelte Lottchen," by Erich Kastner.|Double-exposure and split screen shots -- and a Hayley Mills' lookalike -- were used to create the illusion of twins.|The film was shot mostly in California at various locales including millionaire Stuyvesant Fish's 5,200-acre ranch in Carmel, Monterey's Pebble Beach golf course, and the studio's Golden Oak Ranch in Placerita Canyon, where Mitch's ranch was built.|To this day the Walt Disney Archives receives requests for plans to Mitch's home, but there never was such a house; the set was simply various rooms built on a soundstage.|The Studio later produced three television sequels to the movie, starring Hayley Mills.

By Byron Kolln HALL OF FAME on July 2, 2005
Format: DVD
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).

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

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.

My granddaughter was looking for films to watch while recovering from surgery. Her mom picked this one, she had enjoyed this as a child. I think my daughter liked it as much this viewing.

Sharon McKendrick and Susan Evers, are both played by Hayley Mills, discover at summer camp how much they look alike. Then, they discover they both have a temper, a sense of revenge and the same birthday. At last they realize they are twin sisters, separated at an early age when their mother and father divorced.

They decide to switch places and go to each other's homes to meet their other parent. As you can imagine, this creates a lot of issues for both of them. Particularly when dad decides to marry a much younger woman. Plotting and planning, provides some of the funniest scenes of all. Maureen O'Hara plays the mom, and Brian Keith plays the dad. This is the kind of old fashioned humor we all loved, and this is the kind of film it is fun for the entire family.
