The Parent Trap

Revealing mistake: When Hallie trashes Annie's cabin and the huge water balloon is about to fall on Annie's head, the camera is at a downward view and Annie clearly steps into the trail of the balloon instead of jumping away. (00:18:05)

Revealing mistake: When Hallie is about to pierce Annie's ear, Annie puts the apple underneath her earlobe and Hallie puts the needle in - you can clearly see that Annie's ear already has a hole in it. (00:40:39)

Revealing mistake: When Meredith meets Nick and Elizabeth at the pool, Hallie comes up on her left and says, 'Hi, Mer.' Then Annie comes up on her right and says, 'How's it going?' Meredith shrieks as she looks from one girl to the other and you can tell that Annie is not really there, because Meredith is looking over her head rather than directly at her face, which she does with Hallie.

Revealing mistake: When Hallie and Annie are fencing with each other, Hallie forces Annie's sword into the air, and Annie runs towards the hay stack in the background to catch it. The sword lands on top of the stack of hay to the left of the screen and bounces out of sight; Annie then catches another sword that falls from above, that someone obviously dropped for her to catch.

Revealing mistake: Annie and Hallie come downstairs at the hotel dressed in the same outfits, as their parents tell them to hurry before their mother misses her flight back to England. Nicholas Parker leans over and looks at one of the girls in the eyes and says "This one's Hallie" and she replies, looking straight ahead at him in the eyes. When the other twin speaks, she's looking straight ahead as well, which would technically mean she is looking at nothing.

Revealing mistake: At one point when the two twins are sitting against the wall inside the Isolation Cabin and talking, one of them casts a shadow on the wall while the other doesn't.

Plot hole: The parents meet and get married on the QE II and then we jump to the girls getting to camp 11 years and nine months later. We learn their 12th birthdays are on October 11, so at the time of the camp (which must be around July/August) they are 11 years and around 9 months old. They should only be 11, given it takes 9 months to grow a baby, but instead they're nearly 12.

Question: In the scene where the dad tells Annie, pretending to be Hallie, that he is going to marry Meredith, Hallie yells a bunch of stuff in French. Does anyone know what she was saying?

Answer: I hope that you are joking, Meredith is not the girl for you. But it is possible that I am dreaming that this is so.
