This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
The Parent Trap
The Vicky from the remake is the same woman as from the original.
It's not just a Mythology Gag that she's played by the same actress and has the same name. After losing Mitch to his ex-wife, Vicky marries another man and has Meredith. She encourages her daughter to be a Gold Digger too only to have her lose her meal ticket in the same way.
  • What are the odds that a mother and daughter would go through the same ordeal with a potential husband and his split-apart/recently reunited twins?!
    • The family is cursed. Plus, it wouldn't be the first sequel to repeat the plot from the first film in a contrived way.
    • They are the same woman. Same actress, at least.
