(1998) Slow-paced but often charming remake of the 1961 tale of 11-year-old identical twin sisters (Lindsay Lohan as both) whose parents had divorced when they were infants, one going to England with the mother (Natasha Richardson) while the other remained in California with the father (Dennis Quaid), until the sisters finally meet in summer camp, then switch places on their return home and set to work reuniting their parents. Directed by Nancy Meyers, the sentimental premise yields a number of heartwarming moments and the mischievous antics of the twins provide some comic relief, but the feel-good results are superficial at best. Some unamusing pranks and a scene of amateur ear-piercing. (A-II -- adults and adolescents) (PG -- parental guidance suggested) Showtime (cable)
