** Also, originally, the only reason that Sammy disliked Annie was because she was a stranger. By the time they all ended up at the resort, Annie had probably spent enough time with him to make him warm up to her.

** 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.

** For all we know there could have been supervision in the form of daily check-ups to make sure the girls were keeping the cabin tidy - we just don't see it. And perhaps they did participate in the other camp activities too. We just focus on the girls learning the details about each other because the other stuff isn't important to the plot.

* Meredith could have easily rolled off of the air mattress and fell in the lake and drowned. People can move around a lot in their sleep and if she fell in the water, it wouldn't be much of a stretch for her to be too disoriented to figure out what was going on or be able to figure out which way was up. Hallie and Annie are seriously lucky.

** This troper in particular couldn't manage to enjoy the movie because she doesn't find it sweet and tender at all, but horrifying. Seriously, what were those selfish parents thinking?!

* 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.

* 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?

Added DiffLines:

*** 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?
