The Parents In “The Parent Trap” Were Actually The Worst
WHY DIDN'T YOU GO AFTER HER, NICK?
First of all, The Parent Trap is, of course, a great film.
Seriously, who didn't try to learn this handshake?
But it's time we talked about a major issue here: the parents.
Let's start with why they broke up in the first place.
They had a fight, Elizabeth left, and Nick didn't follow.
Then they each took a twin and parted ways, not even telling their kids they had a twin sister.
So these girls then grew up thinking one of their parents abandoned them.
Just look how happy Hallie is to finally meet her mom.
They even made Chessy keep their secret for 11 YEARS!
Also, at what point was Nick planning on telling Meredith he had another kid? After the wedding?
Speaking of which, what did Nick even see in Meredith anyway?
Honestly, Elizabeth and Nick couldn't even tell their daughters apart.
Meanwhile, this probably all could've been avoided with some conversation and couples therapy.
Sure, things worked out in the end, but really, was it worth all they put Annie and Hallie through?
Take a trip down memory lane that’ll make you feel nostalgia AF
