The Parent Trap | 1998 | PG | - 2.2.1

Two identical twin sisters conspire to reunite their mom and dad who never should have split. With Lindsay Lohan, Dennis Quaid and Natasha Richardson.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Some romantic kissing and flirtations. A girl skinny dips after losing at poker (we see her bare shoulders and her silhouette as she goes into the water). A couple of scenes with seductively dressed women. A man is seen in a skimpy bathing suit.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A scene where a girl pierces the ear of another girl with a needle is quite explicit: we see the needle begin to go through the earlobe and both girls scream (there's no blood). Two girls fence with each other. Several sloppy, gooey, messy practical jokes are played on some girls and adults. A lizard crawls into a woman's mouth; she is visibly disgusted and spits it out. A woman is pushed out onto a lake on her air mattress while fast asleep. A man falls into a pool.

LANGUAGE 1 - A couple of anatomical references and a few insults.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
