Critic Reviews for Parent Trap II
There's really not much here worth recommending, as The Parent Trap II features a predictable and overtly silly storyline that has evidently been dumbed down to appeal solely to small children.
Even a double dose of [Hayley] Mills' charm can't quite compensate for the deficiencies of Stuart Krieger's labored script - this coy frolic plays like a French bedroom farce cleaned up for a summer theater camp.
Audience Reviews for Parent Trap II
Awful. Abysmal. Waste of time. Borderline offensive. The Parent Trap II is a TV Movie which swaps out all the good aspects of the 1961 original with 1980's inanities. Look no further than the offensively short shorts Tom Skerritt wears in his first scene. Or the length of time it takes to get both Sharon and Susan into the action. Or the theme song performed by Solid Gold regular Marilyn McCoo. Or the brain dead adults who allow their lives to be run by the kids. (Sidenote: how can anyone think the initial plot is going to work? At some point, Bill is going to mention aspects of his first "date" with Sharon...only she won't know it because the date was with Susan...oh, hilarity ensues...)
Fails miserably in comparison to the original Parent Trap movie.
