Why The Parent Trap Is One Of The Best Films Of All Time

The 1998 Lindsay Lohan version, obviously.

1. It introduced us to a young, innocent Lindsay Lohan

Pre AA meetings, rehab stints, cocaine addiction, DUIs, and court dates. And what a simpler time it was.

2. Because the opening sequence showed us what true love is

And made you want Nat King Cole’s L.O.V.E to be played at your wedding.

3. And made us realize it was okay to be sexually attracted to Denis Quaid
