”The Parent Trap” is one of the best movies to watch when you’re sick at home
GENRE Kids’ Movie You Never Outgrew
INGREDIENTS At summer camp, Hayley Mills meets the identical twin sister (also Hayley Mills) she never knew existed. To bring their divorced parents (Maureen O’Hara and Family Affair dad Brian Keith) back together, they switch places when they leave camp to go home.
YOU CAN SLEEP THROUGH ”Let’s Get Together,” the girls’ horrible rock & roll song, performed for both parents
STAY AWAKE FOR The camping trip, where the girls make short work of Dad’s gold-digging new fiancée (Joanna Barnes)
HEALING POWERS The movie evokes warm memories of childhood. And all that fresh air and outdoor activity will do you good.
