San Francisco Chronicle
Ignoring these lapses in logic, The Parent Trap' is hugely enter taining and more relevant than most family entertainment. Full Review

The New York Times
The visual illusion that Ms. Lohan is actually two characters has been accomplished so seamlessly that it barely diverts attention from one of the film's greatest passions, its product plugs. Full Review
James Berardinelli
While there's no denying that young actress Lindsay Lohan has spunk, she's not terribly effective in the dual role. Her performance is awkward and unsubtle -- she relies on an unconvincing British accent to cue us in to which girl she's playing at any given moment. Full Review
Joe Leydon
Richardson, who gracefully sways through a memorable drunk scene, and Quaid, whose megawatt smile has never been more dazzling, are disarmingly charming as the parents. And that's important; if the actors were any less engaging, the audience might not be so forgiving of their characters. Full Review

Irresistible family entertainment. Full Review
