    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.

    Disney

    Seriously, who didn't try to learn this handshake?

    But it's time we talked about a major issue here: the parents.

    Disney

    Let's start with why they broke up in the first place.

    Disney

    They had a fight, Elizabeth left, and Nick didn't follow.

    Disney

    They got a divorce because no one could admit they were wrong. For reals?

    Then they each took a twin and parted ways, not even telling their kids they had a twin sister.

    HOW IS SEPARATING YOUR KIDS AT BIRTH A SOLUTION??

    So these girls then grew up thinking one of their parents abandoned them.

    Disney

    They both felt the pain of growing up without one of their parents, having only a ripped up picture of them to look at.

    Just look how happy Hallie is to finally meet her mom.

    Disney

    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?

    Disney

    Speaking of which, what did Nick even see in Meredith anyway?

    *MIDLIFE CRISIS ALERT*

    Honestly, Elizabeth and Nick couldn't even tell their daughters apart.

    Disney

    To be fair, they're identical twins, but still. You created them! Know your kids.

    Meanwhile, this probably all could've been avoided with some conversation and couples therapy.

    Disney

    Sure, things worked out in the end, but really, was it worth all they put Annie and Hallie through?
