* Both girls liking Oreos and peanut butter in the 1998 version seems like a cute and random way to show the girls are alike. Similar twin taste buds, or something the parents used to eat when they were married to each other?

*** Who says they would? Also, campers probably only have to stay in the cabin until "the problem is resolved". The twins would have pretended they were still fighting, having themselves restricted for longer and longer, because they needed to spend most of their time together in order to prepare for the switch.

** Forget the interpersonal dynamics: Who in their right mind would "isolate" two pre-teen children alone in a cabin away from all the others with ''no supervision at all''? Most camp cabins have a counselor assigned to each one to handle problems and oversee behavior. One bad accident and it would be lawsuit city.

* Who's the judge who signed off on this custody arrangement and what other horrors are they perpetrating upon the defenseless children of disfunctional couples?

*** The implication was that Hallie was letting her real persona slip through deliberately to see if her mother would like ''her'', not just her playing Annie. Annie's slip-ups are more attributable to having to unexpectedly deal with the stress of the Meredith situation.

* FridgeHorror: Pictures torn in half, no mention of your other parent, meeting a look-a-like at camp, being shipped halfway across the world--only to discover you've been lied to by EVERYONE. Imagine the therapy sessions (if the movies weren't Disney, that is).

* FridgeLogic: In the Lindsay Lohan version it is established that Sammy the dog is far more friendly to Hallie than he is to Annie. So when the parents couldn't tell them apart why didn't they just bring the dog in and see which girl he ran to?

** Towards the end of the remake, the parents are planning a schedule for swapping the daughters so each parent gets to spend time with each daughter. Excpet for one thing... did it occur to them that the two daughters might like to see ''each other'' and spend time together at some points?!

*** Well, wasn't that the point? They taught each other so much about themselves that they could pass off as each other. Hallie is only found out when her grandfather decided to follow her when she goes for an OOC walk immediately after an OOC moment of being able to taste wine as if she grew up on a vineyard. She doesn't really act OOC on any other occasion infront of her mother, so her mother is forgiven. Plus, given she's been away for 8-weeks at a camp, it's easy to explain slight changes in character (especially as she's a teenager). Same goes for Annie. Annie was only found out because she told Chessy. Chessy was suspicious of her, but didn't really honestly believe she was Annie until she said. If both of the girls tried harder, they could've got away for longer. Their mother only found out when Hallie told her, and her father only found out when he saw both of them.

** Well by all accounts, that was the agreement they decided on. From what other characters say, it's implied Elizabeth was a bit vindictive when she was younger. She gave up one of her daughters so she'd never have to see Nick again. And if you take note of how she completely falls apart when she finds out Annie is actually Hallie - and the following drinking binge on the plane - it's clear she ''hasn't'' had much therapy.

* In either movie, when the father first see's his ex-wife his first question is along the lines of "WTF are YOU doing here". Not even a thought about his lost daughter until she appears before him.

** I don't think Nick had noticed that the dog didn't like Annie (when she was disguised as Hallie) because Sammy is mostly looked after by Chessy, not Nick so only Chessy had picked up on Sammy's behaviour and by that point in the film Chessy wasn't going to suggest it as she's on board with the girls' plan.
